Heart to Heart Families
Empathy for Everyone!
Every day with our children presents new joys and challenges.
The Heart to Heart Families program brings parents and caregivers together to learn the four core skills that are essential for navigating life. These are the MEDC skills of Mindfulness, Empathy, Decision Making and Conflict Transformation. These skills are based on the pioneering work of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication, and other global experts.
Heart to Heart Families gives you the chance to connect with your peers, learn something new, and receive needed empathic support so you can care for yourself as you care for your children.
Our Programs for Parents and Caregivers Offer:
1. Heart to Heart Parenting Introduction
2. Heart to Heart Parenting Essentials - our 8-session series
3. Ongoing Heart to Heart Empathy Circles for mutual support
4. Inside-Out Coaching
5. Materials and resources for you and your children
