Supporting Parents and Parenting with Compassion and Self-compassion:

A Workshop for Professionals Working with Families


Saturday April 21, 2018

8:30 AM – 4:15 PM



Do you work with parents and families? Do you want to learn compassion-based practices that you can share with them to promote effective parenting and emotional well-being for all family members? If so, join our four expert presenters in parenting, compassion, and self-compassion for this interactive workshop. The presenters will highlight research behind compassion-based practices and parenting strategies, and introduce a variety of skills that participants can share with families in community and clinical settings. Participants can receive up to 6 CEUs for participating. 


At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: 

•Describe the components of mindfulness and compassion practices and some of the cognitive mechanisms used (e.g., attention regulation, perspective taking)

•Understand the role of these practices in promoting well-being and self-care among parents

•Identify effective practices for parents and children based on their context and need 


CCFW has brought together national experts in parenting, mindfulness and compassion; their modules include:


Liliana Lengua, PhD, “Parenting Basics - Why mindfulness, compassion and self-compassion are needed to support parenting”.


Sona Dimidjian, PhD, “Parent mental health and well-being: How mindfulness and compassion support parent mental health”.


Larissa Duncan, PhD, “Using Self-Compassion, Compassion, and Lovingkindness Practices to Support Mindful Parenting for Ourselves and Others”.
