Single Parent Support Group
Join our interactive discussion on parenting practices to help both parents and children flourish during the transition of separation/divorce. Single parents gather to support one another through the challenges of parenting alone, managing time, helping children in school and family relationships, and finding time for self-care. Learn how to integrate positive psychology and mindfulness-based practices into parenting to support joyfulness and self-compassion. Open to single mothers and fathers during and after separation or divorce. There is no charge to participate, but pre-registration is required. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Meets quarterly.
To register or request onsite childcare, please contact Diana Blank at 650-931-1801 or [email protected].
