"Parenting is often the greatest challenge in the 'full catastrophe' of daily life. In this elegant training manual, parents learn to strengthen their capacity for mindfulness and compassion regardless of the conditions of their lives, past or present. Essential mindfulness skills are gently woven into group exercises and psychoeducation about parenting and stress. This 'how to' program will surely be an important resource for couples and family therapists, and a refuge distressed parents, for many years to come." -- Christopher Germer, Clinical Instructor, Harvard Medical School, author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion
