About the event
Dr Solter, the founder of the Aware Parenting Institute has made a temporary exception until the end of the year, for the 6 hour workshop that is part of the certification requirement to become an instructor, to be offered digitally via Zoom.
'I highly recommend Rebecca's workshops. She is an incredibly gifted and teacher and her warm energy creates a peaceful and loving atmosphere during the workshop. It made me feel very safe and accepted. I also love Rebecca's examples from her own family life - very genuine and authentic. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to participate in this workshop. I've learned a lot! Karolina, mum to 2 children.
The workshop delves deeply into children's natural ability to heal stress and trauma that they have been exposed to, from something as small as a visit to the dentist to more serious traumas such as severe accidents or medical trauma and a pandemic we find ourselves in midst of. Crying, raging and laugher can transform children’s behaviour.
It runs from 10:00am-15:00pm on the 9th and 10th October 2021. There will be an hours lunch btween 12:00pm-1:00pm.
Please note there are only 24 spaces available for this workshop.
How children heal from stress and trauma through crying, raging & laughter.
This workshop is for parents as well as professionals (teachers, psychologists, therapists, counselors, doctors, nurses, social workers, etc.). The information applies to children from birth to age 12. The workshop is held over 2 days, there will be two 2 hour sessions with an hours lunch in the middle and a Q&A time at the end of each day.
The workshop includes some small-group exercises and plenty of time for questions. It counts as six hours for purposes of Aware Parenting certification.
Stress and trauma early in life can alter children's neurobiological systems and lead to anxiety, behavior problems, hyperactivity, attachment disorders, sleep problems, learning difficulties, depression, and physical illnesses.
Luckily, children know how to heal from trauma if we give them the opportunity. We will review the major sources and symptoms of stress and trauma during infancy and early childhood, and discuss the conditions required for children to restore emotional health. The focus will be on creating emotional safety and facilitating children's spontaneous stress-release mechanisms of crying, play, and laughter
