Mindfulness for Mums and Dads

The illustrated handbook that will save your sanity.This is the book on the ground-breaking science of mindfulness that every parent needs by their side. This beautifully illustrated handbook contains 25 short lessons in being present, avoiding reactivity, and learning to connect deeply in your relationships with your children and partner. Perinatal psychiatrist Dr Diana Korevaar provides instruction for formal meditation in practice, as well as case studies drawn from her own work with parents who have found ways to integrate mindfulness into their lives.Mindfulness for Mums and Dads provides background information about how our minds work, explaining why we are predisposed to focus on the negative aspects of our lives, and how this evolutionary legacy - which ensured the survival of our ancestors - has left us more vulnerable to stress in modern society. Dr Diana Korevaar explains how mindfulness training strengthens our capacity to concentrate, pay attention and direct the focus of our awareness in ways that we choose, and explores ways to bring mindfulness into our daily lives and relationships. Pregnancy and childbirth are times when parents, both men and women, can feel particularly vulnerable to emotional disorders and in Mindfulness for Mums and Dads, Dr Diana Korevaar conveys stories of patients who used her techniques to heal themselves and their families, revealing that sometimes we all need to take the time to be present and reflect on the positive things in our lives.
