Child & Parent Mindfulness for Everyday Life
Parenting Workshop for Parents and Youth (age 11-15)
Trinity is extremely fortunate to have physician and mindfulness expert, Dr. Amy Saltzman, coming to lead a parent-child class for youth ages 11-15 and their parents. Both a trained MD and a practitioner of holistic medicine, she is a mother and author of A Still Quiet Place: A Mindfulness Program for Teaching Children and Adolescents to Ease Stress and Difficult Emotions. Dr. Saltzman’s research, some of which was conducted at Stanford, has convinced her that there are concrete steps parents and children can take to help children navigate these formational years between childhood and adulthood with calm and resilience. Please join other community parents and youth for this fun and transformative exploration of mindfulness and adolescence.
Tuesday evenings 7:00 - 8:00 PM
8 sessions, April 17 - June 5
If schedule conflicts prevent both parent and child from attending together, a parent may attend on their own.
