Upcoming Workshops – How To Talk So Kids Will Listen

The Parent Whisperer NY Ibiza Kidz

We are pleased to offer the “How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk” Faber/Mazlish workshop series, facilitated by Susan Nason.  Susan has 38 years experience leading this and the “Siblings Without Rivalry” workshop in the tri-state area.  She retired from her position as the Assistant to Director of the First Presbyterian Church Nursery School to devote her time to teaching compassionate and effective parenting techniques and skills to parents.  She brings her great respect for the experience of parenting into each session.

This productive and well-designed six-week workshop is a place to gather and share ideas on how to handle daily aspects of parenting – whether or not you are currently having parenting issues.  Participants will be led through exercises which work on developing skills to help communicate more effectively with children using role-plays, written exercises and readings from books.  The sessions focus on acknowledging feelings, engaging cooperation, problem-solving, autonomy, praise and self-esteem.  Workshop participants learn ways to rewrite what Dr. Robert Brook talks about as the “…negative script we act with our children”.

The six-week Evening Workshop will take place on Mondays; each session meets for 1.5hrs.
