Families In Mind

Understanding Parental Wellbeing

A FREE 4-week course supporting parents, grandparents, and carers to create a positive home environment that promotes family wellbeing.

‘Parental well-being reflects a parent's coping strategies, satisfaction with role as a caregiver, perceived support by others, and general emotional stability in contrast to feeling stressed, depressed, and/or lonely’ (King, King, Rosenbaum, & Goffin, 1999; Webster-Stratton, 1989).

Each week we will tackle a related topic and set SMART goals to build towards increased confidence and peace of mind when dealing with family issues.

Course Structure

Week 1: Emotional Hygiene – improving and maintaining your own wellbeing has a huge impact on your child and family relationships.

Week 2: Communicating with Teenagers – developing your skills to talk, listen and understand your child.

Week 3: Dealing with Grief and Loss – Understanding the grief cycle and how unresolved significant losses impact on your own and your child’s development and cognition.

Week 4: Family Bonding – Sharing positive time together making every interaction count towards a deposit in your child’s emotional bank account.

Courses will be running throughout Dorset & BCP areas.
