Mindful Parenting with Caroline Hexdall, Ph.D

Hosted by the UNC Program on Integrative Medicine

A unique hybrid opportunity, start your new year Mindfully!

The UNC Mindfulness-based Program for Stress and Pain Management offers Mindful Parenting, a research-based program developed by Susan Bögels and Kathleen Restifo and endorsed by Mark Williams, Christopher Germer, Jon, and Myla Kabat-Zinn.

Participants will explore themes such as:

  • parenting on “automatic pilot.”
  • beginner’s mind parenting
  • responding vs. reacting to parenting stress
  • conflict and parenting, and love and limits

In addition, topics of self-compassion, vulnerability, and wholeheartedness will be presented. Participants in the program will practice new ways of being present during joyful and stressful parenting moments.

Mindful parenting is an approach that can allow for deeper connections with our children, creating more peaceful, healthier, and happier relationships.
