Self-Compassionate Parenting: 8-week Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy Group
The next series will begin September 10th and will run for 8 weeks. Meetings are on Tuesdays from 6 - 7:30 pm.
Location: Aspen Grove Counseling, 1433 South 1100 East

Group description: In this structured therapy group you will learn why self-compassion is one of the most helpful practices you can develop for your children, your relationship, and your own peace and happiness. You will engage in mindfulness meditation and a variety of techniques for becoming more present in your parenting. Whether your goals are to move past anxiety, perfectionism, or depression, or simply to experience greater happiness and connection, deep transformation comes from integrating these practices into your daily life.
The group balances teaching and experiential exercises with the processing of a more traditional psychotherapy group. This means that members do not spend as much time in conversation; many people who have never attended a therapy group find this more comfortable because there is no pressure to speak in the group. However, members still provide support for each other and gain the comfort of universalizing the struggles of being a parent and being human.
No prior experience with meditation is required. Parents may attend individually or as a couple. Fees for an individaul are $60/session ($480 for the series.) The cost for a couple joining together is $100/session.
