Re-Defining Self Care for Parents

June 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

This free workshop will examine how the definition of self-care changes once you become a parent. The time and energy we have for ourselves and others changes dramatically after we welcome a child. However, the importance of caring for ourselves becomes even more important because it enhances our ability to care for our children, partners, and other family members. Heather O’Brien, LICSW, will facilitate this discussion. Heather runs a free weekly group for parents of babies under one year, and has additional training in infant-parent mental health. Participants in the program will have the opportunity to define self-care for themselves and make a plan for how to incorporate self-care into their daily lives. This workshop is ideal for couples; however, information will be shared in a way that can easily be communicated to spouses or partners if only one can attend.
