About the event

Introducing Coffee & Play with Bridget!

Ages 1-3 ... 9am-10am

Ages 4-7 ... 10am-11am

Join Coffee & Play with Bridget Kleitsch, Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in learning new ways to expand upon and grow in parent and child interaction within your own home! Techniques and strategies learned will allow parents to increase confidence in knowing they are meeting their child’s essential needs including safety, social engagement, regulation, and security within play. You can expect to learn strategies to play meaningfully through “notice and nurture,” “hellos and goodbyes,” and “one-on-one fun” with your child as well as addressing difficult behaviors in play to increase both parent and child satisfaction in play with support and guidance from a licensed clinician.

You can expect to enjoy coffee while receiving helpful information from Bridget and then engage with your child in play that is observed and gently guided by Bridget. Your child can expect to have plenty of toys (from Oh Happy Play) to be entertained by and will love your time and attention dedicated to them.

Goals

Offer parents the tools and confidence to play meaningfully with their children in addition to coregulation tools to support emotional peace within their relationships with their children. Parents will leave with tools of sequential play routines of nurture, noticing,  face-to-face connection, and hellos and goodbyes to ultimately feel an increased satisfaction in their parent/child connections and attachments.
