Learn how to apply tenets of mindfulness in everyday family interactions. This third of four sessions focuses on understanding the patterns of behavior that inform parents' reactions. Practice reconstructing your parenting style and developing a more compassionate approach to disciplining your child. Each session of this series combines teaching with working periods that can be applied to everyday family life. As a cumulative series, subsequent Mindfulness for Families sessions will build upon previous ones while providing accessible entry points for newcomers and single-session attendees. This program is designed for children ages three to seven with accompanying adult(s). Family Programs are made possible by Con Edison, Agnes Gund, New York Life, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. About the Instructor Ayman Mukerji Househam is a mindfulness teacher and neuroscience researcher at NYU Langone Medical School. Her work focuses on the benefits of mindfulness for families. Househam's publications show the benefits of a regular mindfulness practice on the brain and general well-being. She is finishing a publication on the neuroimmunological and gut microbial changes associated with a stress-free life. Househam has worked with pediatric patients with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD, a topic she elaborates on in another upcoming book. Her approach toward building mindful families blends mindfulness techniques of the East with parent-child-interaction therapy of the West. A mindfulness practitioner for the past twenty years, Househam practices mindfulness with her own family of four. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=260938 Rubin Museum Rubin Museum
