The Healing Power of Mindful Parenting

by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Myla Kabat-Zinn
Most parents would agree that parenting is one of the most stressful occupations on the planet, for which there is very little training. Here Jon and Myla Kabat-Zinn, preeminent experts on mindful parenting, combine ancient wisdom with the latest psychological research to offer tools and techniques to help parents—and the therapists who treat them—navigate the challenges of parenting.


The Healing Power of Mindful Parenting
Mindfulness is paying attention purposefully and without judgment to the present moment; mindful parenting is about bringing that quality of awareness to relationships with children of all ages. Guiding a live studio audience in an exploration of the fundamentals of mindful parenting, the Kabat-Zinns share how parents can practice and apply mindfulness for their own well-being and to enhance their relationships with their children. From getting the most out of ordinary moments in a family’s day, to navigating challenging situations, to creating a haven in the home, viewers will learn simple and profound ways to cultivate a deeper intimacy with the present moment, thereby deriving greater satisfaction out of the extraordinary enterprise of parenting.

Parents, step-parents, parent educators, and therapists will find this video filled with healing principles and highly practical tools. Conveniently organized segments, exercises, and slides make it easy to use for parent education classes and workshops.

By watching this video, you will be able to:
  • Understand how to practice mindfulness and how it is relevant to parenting
  • Identify the nine steps parents can use for responding rather than reacting in difficult situations
  • Explain how to create a space in the home that reflects the family’s values
