Event description

Description

Parenting can be both a joy and very hard work.

But things get in the way of us being the parents we want to be - including our own thoughts and feelings. These can be about ourselves, about our children, about our parenting, or about what others think about our parenting.

Your Parenting ACT is a 5 week course for parents of school aged children that helps you develop a strong foundation for your parenting. It helps you understand your child, develop your self, nurture your relationship with your child and parent in line with your values. It uses principles from ACT — Acceptance and Commitment Training — to help you make room for all your thoughts and feelings, so you can respond more calmly and 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 Tuesday evenings from the 5th of May to the 2nd of June, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.





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.


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

To find out more or to ask any questions please ring or email Giselle at hello@bahr.net.nz and 027 567 4496.

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.


Where can I park?

The #1 busroute, which travels from Island Bay to Johnsonville, stops very close to the Berhampore Centential Community Centre.

There are five HNZ parks, numbered NHZ1 HNZ5, on the right hand side of the driveway as you entr, in front of the garages. There are for users of the Community Centre. Parking is also available on Adelaide Rd and the side streets off Adelaide Rd.
