Open Your Mind, Open Your Heart: Grieving and Loving Your Special Child

Raising a child with special needs is like running a marathon: it is a test of physical, mental and spiritual endurance that can place a severe strain on the overall well-being of caregivers over time. Throughout this journey, as caregivers evolve in response to the changing challenges they face, they will also be dealing with an ever-present sense of grief. While their grief over having children with special needs is understandable, it unfortunately casts a perpetual gloom over their perceptions and their relationships with their children. Considering the importance of the parent-child relationship, grief can be highly toxic to the relationship, making both parties extremely unhappy.

What this workshop does is to provide caregivers with a supportive environment to express their honest feelings of having an autistic child and work through them in a variety of cathartic activities. Finally, the trainer will also share practical strategies and suggestions not only for working through these emotions, but also for maintaining a positive attitude, as well as a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
