7 Polling Question 1: Are you using the Nurturing Program for Families in Substance Abuse Treatment and Recovery?
8 Polling Question 2: If you provide parenting education for parents who are in treatment or recovery what parenting program do you use?
9 Guiding Values of the Nurturing Program Parenting is a relationship, not only a set of skills Nurturing oneself is the first step toward nurturing others Respect for self and others, including children Fun and laughter Recovery starts with the individual and maintained through healthy family relationships
10 Program Philosophy Three essential factors for success and satisfaction within the parent/child relationship: o o Mutuality a dynamic, interactive sensitivity and responsiveness Authenticity freedom and ability to live within the relationship at a high level of exposure and vulnerability
11 Program Philosophy o Empathy Process by which the disclosure and sharing of oneself leads to a heightened sense of self, and of understanding another; self-awareness and self-acceptance enhance awareness and acceptance of others.
12 Nurturing the Parent How we were parented becomes a part of who we are and creates the framework from which we parent our children.
13 Example: Feelings Purpose of this session is to help parents increase: o o their tolerance and understanding of theirs and their children s emotions, and their ability to respond to their and their children s emotions in a nurturing way The framework used for this lesson defines the differences between Nurturing, Neglectful and Hurtful responses to feelings.
14 Example: Feelings Nurturing Response o Accurately acknowledges and names the feeling; accurately identifies the stimulus; does not judge the suitability of the feeling; provides a healthy way of expressing the feeling, i.e. one that does not injure self or other, one that does not place blame for the feeling or responsibility for the feeling on another.
15 Example: Feelings Neglectful Response: o To minimize the feeling or the cause of the feeling; to dismiss the importance of the feeling or fail to respond to it. Hurtful Response: o To criticize, attack or punish the person for having the feeling.
16 Example: Feelings Scenario: The family pet dies. What are you feeling? What is your child feeling? What is our response? Nurturing Neglectful Hurtful
