    Infusing Everyday Parenting Moments With Mindfulness

    As parents, we strive to draw upon the most effective parenting strategies for our children. Even when we know the best practices, it can be challenging to use them consistently – particularly if there are economic or work challenges, family conflict, mental health issues, divorce, death or other stressful life circumstances.

    Incorporating mindfulness practices into parenting strategies can help parents have more positive interactions with their children. In this workshop, Dr. Liliana Lengua will interweave mindfulness with best parenting practices that can be used in everyday interactions between parents and children to enhance parents’ effectiveness and relationships with their children.

    Learning objectives include: Learn best parenting practices of warmth, consistency and scaffolding; Use mindfulness practices to increase use of best parenting practices; Use mindfulness practices to be present, calm and wise-minded; Combine specific parenting and mindfulness practices when interacting with children.

    About the presenter: Liliana Lengua, PhD, University of Washington professor of psychology and director of the Center for Child and Family Well-Being, is a child clinical psychologist and a mother of three children. She is an internationally recognized expert on children’s vulnerable and resilient responses to stress, demonstrating how parenting and children’s temperament contribute to children’s unique responses to stress. She is also recognized for her research on the effects of stress and adversity on parenting and children’s social-emotional development, and has developed an evidence-based parenting program infused with mindfulness practices to enhance parenting effectiveness. She has been the principal investigator of several federally funded research projects and is the author of almost 100 published papers.
