20 & 21 Jan 2024 | My Child & the Child in Me | Boundaries, Barriers and Discipline | Weekend Workshop 2 | Online

Why do we discipline our children?

Does discipline contribute towards nurturing a child’s character and personality?

Parenting styles are unique, highly personal and at the same time influenced by many factors including cultural, socio-political, and environmental norms and values.

In this workshop, we will explore the role of discipline and safety, boundaries, barriers and defences in our parent-child relationships. How did we learn them? How do we impart them to our children, why are they important…and why do we find discipline so challenging?

We hope the workshop will be informative, creative and reflective, integrating play, art and conversation. We will work in pairs and small groups.

Please make sure you have a journal, drawing, painting and modelling equipment available for use.

Interested participants may enrol on one, or more of these weekend workshops in sequence, or randomly (i.e. first and fourth, second only etc.)

The reason that the location for workshop 4 is yet to be confirmed is that we would like to prioritise participants who sign up for all 4 workshops. This obviously depends on where you are based. If most participants cannot get to London Art Therapy Centre in London, then workshops 4 will take place online to enable continuity of attendance. However it may be that participants are happy to travel to London, and in this case we would like to offer workshops 4 as in-person workshop. We will let you know nearer the time.
