Foundations 201:   Power, Perception and Personhood

It helps when a parent or caregiver is working to understand and empathize with the child's world. Starting with a quick overview of attachment styles, we will explore the three axes of power, perception and personhood. Respecting the history of our child will help us understand the roots of their attitudes and behavior. From this insight, we grow in our capacities to offer appropriate levels of mercy and structure to the child. Finally, we will explore several parenting strategies that can offer healing and help us in our attempts to reconstruct the child’s life.
