Lisa Weiner is a nurse practitioner, parent educator and consultant. In addition to teaching parenting classes on topics ranging from screen time to discipline, Lisa is a frequent speaker at workshops and conferences and has a parent consulting practice where she supports parents of children of all ages. Lisa’s work is rooted in the attachment-based developmental approach of Dr. Gordon Neufeld; Lisa is a student in the facilitator training diploma program at The Neufeld Institute and has found that Dr. Neufeld’s paradigm has deeply enriched her own parenting, her work with parents and her understanding of human development and relationships. Lisa’s style is warm, supportive and down-to-earth-- you can expect connection, stories and laughter in a class or session with Lisa. Lisa is the mother of two boys ages 9 and 13.
Lisa's works from the attachment-based developmental paradigm as articulated by Dr. Gordon Neufeld .
The Neufeld paradigm emphasizes the importance of attachment in supporting our children in reaching their full human potential. Lisa's classes, workshops and consulting sessions aim to empower parents, teachers and grandparents to become the answer to their children's (students'/grandchildren's) needs.
The Simplicity Parenting movement also informs Lisa's work. Simplicity Parenting advocates for the slowing down of family life and for the preservation of childhood. Lisa also draws inspiration from the wisdom of Waldorf education, Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE), the many great teachers her sons have had, her own intuition and, most importantly, her own parenting journey.
