Today, many parents go to see pediatricians, psychologists, or family therapists when they have educational questions.

Current society is indeed challenging for Christian parents. They want their children to be the best prepared to function in society. At the same time, they want to give them a Christian education, faith, and values ​​that are not necessarily shared by most in society.

To meet this need, Marina Rizk, an Orthodox child psychiatrist, and David den Boer, a family man, are now offering educational workshops for parents. This project came to existence thanks to Orthodox of all jurisdictions. It is aimed at Orthodox but also at “mixed” couples. Parents with children of all ages and couples who do not have children yet will find these workshops of interest to them.

On January 27, Marina Rizk will speak about the attachment between parents and children.

Parents can come with their questions and experience, to allow an interactive exchange between the speaker and the participants. We encourage couples to come together. In parallel with the workshop for adults, children will be welcomed in a room in the same building, and activities will be offered to them.

Marina Rizk

“Helping families to better understand what’s going on during difficult times has been part of my practice as a psychiatrist (for children and adults) for years. With them, I have been discovering the dynamics of relationships within a family. We have fun understanding why we behave one way or another. Together, we read the signs of evolution of the little ones, and also of the adults. It is a real life laboratory on relationships, where we acquire knowledge not only through the intellect, but also in our encounters and experience”.

David den Boer

“As a father, the issue of the Christian education and development of our children in today’s society is close to my heart. My experience as a hospital chaplain and working with the Orthodox Funeral Services, has made me aware of the importance of education and the Christian faith in the different stages of life . Thus, I hope this project will provide parents with keys to understanding, adapting, and transmitting values ​​to our children”.

Participation is free.
