Courageous Parents Network is collaborating with a licensed professional counselor and mother Ronda Thorington to offer the Network’s caregiver community a series of one-hour group sessions designed to orient parents of children with serious medical conditions to the caregiver experience and help them navigate from diagnosis onwards. (These sessions are psycho-education in nature – not therapy.)

Session #1: Know Your Triggers.
We bring our whole selves to the journey of parenting – the good, the bad, and the ugly. This workshop is designed to help parents identify and manage their parenting triggers effectively. Participants will be empowered with practical strategies and self-awareness exercises to respond to challenging situations with greater mindfulness, patience, and emotional resilience.
- Through self-reflection exercises you will identify your personal triggers and explore how they can become intensified during times of stress.
- Empower yourself with effective techniques to navigate and manage your reactions when you encounter triggers.
- Gain insight into how recognizing and addressing personal triggers can lead to improved relationships, parenting, and communication.
