Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction for Parents

January 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm CST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 5, 2019

$125

Join us and Communities Engaging Autism (CEA) for a six-week course based on the Vanderbilt University curriculum designed specifically to target stress reduction through training and mindfulness for parents of children with autism, ADHD, and other disabilities. Fee includes six classes led by skilled guides who understand special needs family dynamics.

Participants receive an insightful resource manual and digital downloads of guided meditations and mindfulness practices.

Practice outside of class times will ensure maximum benefit to participants and their families. CEU’s available. Cost for the entire series is $125. Questions? Email: info@cea4autism.org

Through education, support and targeted mindfulness training, parents raising children with special needs experience large reductions in stress and improvements in overall health—benefits that impact the entire family. In fact, children with autism have shown better functioning, less stress and increased social skills. All parents of children with special needs are welcome and will benefit from this course. Mindfulness practice is putting your own oxygen mask on first so you can help others!
