Compassionate Parenting

Creating Trust, Safety, and Emotional Security for Parents and Children 

Online Course: 4 Saturday mornings starting April 18, 2020
















Parenting is one of the most challenging jobs we may ever have, yet there isn't an owner's manual that shows us how to keep our sanity, raise happy and healthy children, and create a stress-free home life.



Join Lisa Gottlieb, MSW, SSW (pictured below right) Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Certified Trainer for an interactive 4-week live online course on parenting tools designed for parents with young children, teenagers, and young adults (plus a 5th session on April 4 as a introduction to the principles of NVC).

This course will offer practical tools to help you:

  • Emotionally connect with your children while setting
    safe, healthy boundaries.

  • Develop ways to de-escalate conflict and build more
    trust and open communication.

  • Gain skills to increase your calm while dealing with
    stressful situations with your children.

  • Be held with kind support as we navigate this learning time together. 



DATES: 4 consecutive Saturdays: April 18, 25; May 2, 9, 2020


TIME: 10:00 am - 11:30 am ET


LOCATION: Your home or office -- anyone with a computer, tablet, or smartphone and an internet connection can participate!

QUESTIONSEmail the Registrar (Jeff Brown)

AUDIENCE: Designed for people who have had an introduction to Nonviolent Communication (NVC), whether with Lisa or with another NVC trainer or program. If you have not had a formal introduction to this work, join Lisa the Saturday before this 4-week course begins (April 11) to attend an online introduction.
Each of the four sessions focuses on a particular theme of ways
to apply the lens of Nonviolent Communication to parenting,
including how to:
  • Navigate challenging moments and conflicts with your kids.
  • Take care of yourself when you’re overwhelmed with the
    task of being a parent.
  • Say “no” to something your child is begging you to do...
    and have it turn out well.
  • Collaborate with others who are involved in your children's
    lives including their other parent, step-parents, and family
    members... even if they have different styles and values
    around parenting.

About Online Courses:
Participating in an online course allows you to join from the convenience of your home or office... and spend less time away from your children or family! The course takes place on Zoom, a free and easy-to-use application that is designed for the layperson and does not require any technical expertise. All you need is a computer, tablet, or smartphone connected to the internet (upon registration, we will send instructions for how to join the sessions).
Each session will be video recorded so that you can re-watch any of the sessions or catch ones that you miss.
