It’s all in the family: working with children, teens and parents using the Process Work lens

October 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am - October 15, 2023 @ 6:00 pm


Working with children, teens and parents using the Process Work lens

Seminar with Dawn Menken

In collaboration with Naturalmente Crescendo, the Italian School of Process Work is organizing in Marti (Province of Pisa, Italy) an exceptional two-day seminar aimed at parents, educators, therapists, processworkers with American specialist Dawn Menken, author of Raising Parents, Raising Kids: Hands-on Wisdom for the Next Generation for the first time in Italy!

October 14th and 15th, 2023 

This two-day seminar is aimed at parents who want to learn more about their family dynamics and promote change, but also at those (practitioners, students, educators) who work with children and families and would like to add the tools of Process Work to their toolbox.

Based on the pioneering work of Dr. Arnold Mindell, Process Work with children and families reveals the wisdom that each problem already holds and brings a spirit of playfulness and curiosity to the work.

The seminar will be held in English and Italian.


We will explore interventions that:

  • help address family blocks and challenges.
  • work with the family system, atmosphere and dynamics.
  • help families and children explore and navigate power dynamics.
  • transform challenging and disturbing behavior.
  • access children’s playful and meaningful wisdom.
