Center for Reflective Communities (CRC) is a leading training, clinical, and research center dedicated to strengthening the parent-child relationship by increasing a parent’s capacity for reflective thinking.
Regina founded Center for Reflective Communities (CRC), formally known as CRP, Center for Reflective Parenting, because the capacity for parents and other caretakers to be reflective is the best way to help children ‘grow into healthy, satisfied, and productive adults’.
By enhancing reflective thinking skills, CRC strengthens bonds between children and those who care for them, engendering healthy development for our children, families and communities.
Our programs help parents recognize:
- Children’s behavior has underlying meaning that can be understood through reflective thinking
- Children have better developmental success cognitively, socially and emotionally when parents are able to reflect on what is going on inside their children and inside themselves
- Reflective thinking is the core of all healthy relationships
