The Network is hosting a number of virtual workshops in place of our annual conference. We will be updating this page with our upcoming programming.
Parenting Journey & Integrating Self-Compassion as a Standard of Care
The Network hosted a workshop with Parenting Journey on integrating self compassion as a standard of care. Parenting Journey helps parents and caregivers increase their confidence, capability, and resiliency as individuals and as parents. While their programs have always emphasized the importance of self-care to promote family well-being, they have re-examined their strategies and elevated self-compassion in their practices to reflect the needs of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
Research demonstrates that increased self-compassion is correlated with a decrease in depression and anxiety symptoms and an increase in resilience during times of stress. It is composed of: self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and mindfulness. This workshop provided tools to include these elements in your practice at your work and in your personal life to help navigate through these complicated times.
