BRINGING BABY HOME
Bringing Baby Home is a research-based workshop for couples making the transition to parenthood. Parents who attend this workshop are shown to have better co-parenting abilities; more involvement of the fathers in the baby’s life and more appreciation of fathering; stable and high relationship quality with less hostility during conflict; and, fewer mothers showed symptoms of post-partum depression, the baby blues or other mood disorders.
Emotion Coaching is a five-step research-based program that is easy to learn and proven effective with children from infancy through adolescence. Participants learn a parenting style that has positive and long-lasting effects on children and parent/child relationships. Skills learned foster growth in a child’s ability to control impulses, self-soothe, focus attention, perform better academically and cope with life’s ups and downs. Parents learn how to use their child’s behavioral challenges as opportunities to assist them in building life-long coping skills.
