Join us for a class led by NYC and LA psychotherapists and authors!
For parents of babies to school-age children.
Babies and children challenge parents every day with intense desire, protest, frustration, resistance and tantrums. They clearly have big feelings and strong opinions! Learn the simple, 3-step communication approach that will turn these challenging moments into opportunities. It’s easy to enjoy our little ones when they’re happy and smiling, but it’s just as important to stay connected when they’re having a hard time. Julie and Heather will describe their 3-step approach, ALP, and explain how you can be both empathic and effective, the win-win! They will give real life examples and show you how to apply the 3 steps to some of your own parenting dilemmas.
