Softening the Defenses: Helping Children face vulnerability, find their tears and gain resilience Thursday Feb. 1st 6:45 pm – 8:45 pm North Vancouver

Date: Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018

Time: 6:45 pm to 8:45 pm

Location:  New Delbrook Community Recreation Centre, 851 W. Queens Rd. North Vancouver


Description: Family therapists and parent consultants, Patti and Colleen Drobot often speak of the need for a child’s heart to remain soft, for vulnerable emotions to be felt and expressed, for tears of futility to be shed in order for the child to develop and mature.  For anyone raising a child who is very sensitive or whose tears stuck, softening the defenses the brain has erected for protection can be a daunting task that sometimes seems almost impossible.

This workshop will focus on ways parents and professionals can soften a child’s heart so that the tears can be restored, lowering frustration and anxiety and cultivating resilience.  As family therapists and mothers of sensitive children, Colleen and Patti will shed light on how to restore the ability for a child to feel, attend, grieve and attach.

This workshop is suitable for all parents and professionals working with children who have difficulty facing vulnerablity.

Pre-registration is required.
