Parent to Parent NZ presents: Renew Connect and Reflect Workshop

Parent to Parent NZ presents: Renew Connect and Reflect Workshop

Caring for a disabled child or a child with a health impairment can come with a range of challenges such as coping with stress, change, and building a resilient family.

Essential for families and whānau new to the world of disability, or as a refresher course for those a bit further down the track, set your family up for long-term success with Renew, Connect & Reflect.

RENEW: Learn how to cope with the stress, change and even grief that having a disabled child can bring.

CONNECT: The benefits of meeting other parents and caregivers in the same situation can be life-changing. Many participants say they feel understood for the first time.

REFLECT: Thinking intentionally about you and the needs of your family and whānau, as well as how each family member communicates, can enhance relationships and build emotional resilience. Register today!
