Bringing Baby Home - 2-Day Workshop

February 9 - February 10 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Learn parenting and relationship skills that will last a lifetime. Prepare yourself for life with your baby and discover how to be the best parenting team possible.

This workshop, developed by renowned relationship experts, Drs. John and Julie Gottman, helps to prepare you for the most important and rewarding job you will ever have, raising a child. The Bringing Baby Home (BBH) workshop focuses on providing new parents with the knowledge and skills necessary to cope constructively with the birth of their child. Through lecture, group discussion and activities the BBH workshop teaches couples how to strengthen their friendship, increase intimacy, regulate conflict and how to build a "relationship house". Couples learn to co-parent with their partner to foster child development and to see the value of keeping dad involved. You will learn skills to become sensitive and responsive parents in an effort to promote healthier children in the emotional, social, cognitive and physical realms. The BBH workshop encourages early parent-infant dialogue and increases positive communication, ritual development and shared meaning for the whole family. This workshop is designed for couples who are pregnant or have infants up to three years of age. Babies up to 3 months old welcome. 2-day class. 14 hours total.
