Self-Compassion for Our Kids and Ourselves Training

May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Laura Beth DeHority, LMFT  is a therapist and an adoptive Mother whose high needs children are now young adults.  Her trainings offer foster and adoptive parents skills and strategies to support high needs children. She’ll approach this training from a psychological perspective for all parents and caregivers seeking and finding life meaning. She’ll also incorporate exploring meaning through a faith lens because spirituality is parallel with meaning for many.

This training will touch on things that help us to find meaning, such as:

  • a sense of presence
  • social connection
  • acknowledgement of what is hard (without ruling our lives)
  • balance
  • purpose
  • opportunity
  • inspiration
  • perseverance
  • optimism

These are touch points we can teach our children as they seek to find life’s meaning outside themselves.  Finding meaning can help our kids to work through disappointments, letdowns, setbacks, and even mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression. Compassion is the meat and meaning is the bones for this training session. Finding compassion in a context that is outside ourselves instead of just being overwhelmed by what is happening outside of ourselves is the end goal.  Cultivating self-compassion for ourselves and our children will be looked at with lots of practical ideas to implement for yourself and your children the next day!

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
