Trigger & Emotions in Parenting (Guest Speaker Carrie Contey, Ph.D.)
Tuesday, October 21th, 7:00pm – 9:00pm, free for St. Andrew’s members, $25 for general public
In St. Andrew’s Sanctuary
One of the biggest surprises of parenthood is the amount and depth of emotions growing people feel. And what that evokes in the parents.
During this talk we will:
• Explore a new way of thinking about the purpose of emotions
• Fill your tool box with healthy ways of being with your children when they are in the midst of big emotions
• Develop a plan to care for yourself and others in the moments when you are triggered
• Gain skills for teaching your growing people emotional intelligence
Highly interactive, this two-hour workshop allows parents to explore the messaging they received and clarify the model they want to provide to their family. If you have little people in your life, you don’t want to miss this! Free for the congregation of St. Andrew’s, $25.00 for the general public.
