Rutger’s Parenting Workshop

We’d like to invite you to our next FREE parenting workshop! Please see below for details. Space is limited, so RSVP is required.

What: When It’s Time to Change: How to Help Your Child Manage Life’s Big and Small Transitions

Do you and your little one struggle with times like bedtime or leaving the playground? Are you anxious about how your child will respond to starting preschool, or becoming a big sibling?  Psychologist and parenting expert Dr. Michelle Canarick, Ph.D., will help you and your children successfully navigate both large and small transitions.  Dr. Canarick combines both practical techniques for making transitions smooth, with support for parents around the feelings that changes can bring.  Her approach is grounded in the concept of empathy—for your child and yourself—and the importance of understanding your feelings as well as your child’s. This workshop is ideally suited for families with children age 5 and under.

Who: Michelle Canarick., Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist and the parent of two young children. She worked for four years with Dr. Ned Hallowell, author of the bestselling book Driven to Distraction. Dr. Canarick facilitates support groups for mothers of newborns through preschoolers, where moms can freely discuss the issues and challenges of parenting in a safe, non-judgmental environment. She also provides individual therapy for mothers and children in her practice, which is located on the Upper West Side. See for more information about Dr. Canarick’s work.

  2. Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
