Event description

Description

Parenting can be both a joy and very hard work.

And things get in the way of us being the parents we want to be. Sometimes they are things outside us, but more often they are our own thoughts and feelings. They might be thoughts about ourselves, about our children, about our parenting, or about what others think about our parenting.

Your Parenting ACT is a 5 week course that helps you parent in line with your own values. It uses principles from ACT — Acceptance and Commitment Therapy — to help you make room for all your thoughts and feelings, so you can respond flexibly as a parent. ACT uses acceptance, mindfulness and behavioural strategies to help people pursue what matters most to them, including being the parent they want to be.






The course is held over five consecutive Monday evenings from the 14th of May to the 18th of June, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. (No course on the 4th of June - Queen's Birthday.) It will be held in the Lower Hall of the St Luke's Centre, which is downstairs. You can enter through the main doors and come down the stairs on your right. Or walk down the driveway to the right of the Centre and come in through the door on your left.





Giselle Bahr is a clinical psychologist working in Wellington. She works primarily with young people and their families in private practice. Before that she spent 15 years working in Wellington's public health system and teaching in a university clinical training programme.


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Do we need to attend as a parenting couple?

The course is designed so that any individual parent can take part and apply the skills to their parenting. It is not necessary for parents to attend the course together. Each person attending needs to register individually.
