Mindful parenting encourages parents to live and be present in the moment, which increases cognitive flexibility and decreases emotional reactivity. It is an attitude and a mindset rather than a structured, systematic approach to parenting. The overall aim of this presentation is to increase awareness of the benefits of mindfulness practices and their potential impact on both parent and child when infused into daily parenting practices. Working definitions of mindfulness will be presented, along with its benefits as outlined in recent empirical research. Techniques for mindful parenting and strategies to improve behavioral and emotional outcomes will be shared, with an emphasis on how service providers can work with parents to adopt these techniques.
