Our natural love of storytelling is the foundation for self-discovery, self-confidence, and self-regulation. In developmentally appropriate workshops for ages 4 to 11 year-olds, psychotherapists Victoria Jones and Dr. Catherine Boswell have developed a workshop to help children succeed in a world that favors perfectionism and competition. The tools for insight and growth will be storytelling, creative movement, acting, mindfulness meditation, play, drawing, painting, singing, games, puzzling, and bookmaking. The workshop goals include: 1) Helping your child find and protect her/his strengths which often lie outside current testing measures in standard school subjects; 2) Helping your child manage big feelings rather than bury or express inappropriately; 3) Helping your child preserve kindness and acceptance in an often binary social order--those deemed acceptable and those who are not; 4) Helping your child learn basics of healthy communication and healthy boundaries necessary for rewarding relationships. The workshops are from 9:00 am-12:00 noon; early and late care are available for an additional fee. Simultaneous 90-minute Parent Workshops are also available on Wednesdays, 9:00 to 10:30am, for an additional fee. Siblings get a 10% discount.
