CLASSES

Learn the 12 needs of a child and how to effectively fill those needs. End your confusion about handling emotions, time outs, quality time and about the actual time a child needs to develop inner security. 

After more than 30 years of research in attachment theory, how children develop to feel safe and secure and go on to have productive lives, free from addictions and neurosis, the research is very clear and makes perfect sense. Come to this two hour class to gain understanding and relaxation around raising your little one. Barbara is in a unique position after working with couples for over 25 years to understand security and the different types of insecurity that get played out from early childhood into adulthood. She has helped many couples and individuals go from insecurity to earned security. Barbara has a deep understanding of how insecurity develops early on and is now educating parents on how to raise secure kids. 

Barbara has been studying the work of Dr. John Bowlby on Attachment Theory for many years. The quality of a child's attachment is related to concrete, definable parental capacities and behavior patterns. In this 2-hour class, she teaches parents what these capacities and behavior patterns are and how to consistently create a secure base and a safe haven from with your child will go out into the world with a solid sense of security. 

The information in this class will allow you to relax, end your confusion and enjoy raising secure children. Barbara would be happy to speak to your group or you may attend one of her classes held twice a month in San Francisco and Sonoma County.
