Minnesota Association for Children’s Mental Health | Trauma and Resilience Toolkit Training Series

Who’s Holding You While You Hold the Children: Self Care + Self Compassion as a provider in care & a provider who cares
Dr. Sheila Sweeney
June 1st, 6:30-7:30 pm

The parent-child relationship is crucial to child development because it helps shape the child’s sense of self. How adults respond to children’s needs and cues impacts how children (a) feel about themselves, (b) learn to handle and express emotions, and (c) how they relate to others.  Therefore, understanding one’s own ability to be reflective and potential challenges to that ability is crucial.

The experiences of being heard, acknowledged, and validated can help everyone across the early childhood triadic model (professional –>parent-child) on every level of the relationship. We want to think-rethink and work-rework narratives through our time together, ultimately to slow down the experiential process and to be present with every parent-child-self engagement.  Just as you help individual children and parents alike begin to confront previously unexamined patterns of stressful experiences and encounters, you will want to consider how this work impacts or triggers your responses or reactions.  Exploring these areas can assist in making conscious changes that break potentially harmful patterns during stressful times.

We will explore the power of the pause, the slow down and be present approach and examine independently how each person’s stress or triggers may interfere with one’s self-care, including self-compassion while providing care.
