Holistic Parenting - Empowering Parents of Children w/Special Needs

Seminar Size: 20 attendees

Registration ends: Thursday, May 3rd

Often as parents, we come face to face with the question “What’s wrong with my child?” Our kids are labeled, evaluated, graded, scolded, disciplined, criticized so much that sometimes all we can see are the negatives.

In this interactive workshop series, The Special Needs Coach, Jaime Roche, MSW will help parents see their children in a new light with a greater understanding of their positive potential. Looking at our children from a strengths perspective we will ask questions like “What’s right with my child?” “What are my child’s strengths?” “What is my child’s true nature?” and “How can I help my child become his or her best self?”

Drawing from the work of internationally recognized Developmental Pediatrician Dr. Stephen Cowan, founder of Tournesol Kids and author of Fire Child Water Child,  parents will discover their child’s “type,” nature, dominant characteristics, and strengths, based on the ancient Chinese wisdom tradition of the five elements. We will also discuss and learn a variety of easy to incorporate tools and practices for helping each of our children flourish.

Jaime Roche, MSW is a clinically trained social worker and holistic parent coach. She has a masters degree in social work from Hunter College School of Social Work and has worked with children, teens, and families in both public and private settings for over 15 years. She has studied extensively with world-renowned Developmental Pediatrician Stephen Cowan, MD and currently focuses her private practice on supporting special needs children and teens using a holistic whole-child, whole-family approach.
