Connected Parenting – An Evening on Understanding Strategies to Connect with our Children living with Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Presented By: Jennifer Kolari from Connected Parenting
Workshop Description: A workshop on how to use the tools that therapists implement to help children develop the emotional and neurological hardware they need to deal with whatever life throws at them! As the author of Connected Parenting, Jennifer will discuss her CALM technique which helps to de-escalate behaviour while building trust and increasing emotional resilience in children.
About the Author: Jennifer Kolari, M.S.W, R.S.W., author and founder of Connected Parenting is a therapist who has been helping children, teens and families get connected for 20 years. Teaching techniques used by therapists, Connected Parenting empowers parents to use mirroring and empathy to attune to their child’s feelings. This helps to set limits, shift negative behaviours and avoid ugly power struggles. Parents learn to help their children and teenagers organize and control their emotions – so they become more confident and emotionally resilient.
