EAP mental talks: Children at home (Modis)

February 26, 2020 @ 14:00 - 15:30


working language: Bulgarian or English 

Children at home

Workshop goals: To present participants with information about the role of first child transition in long term psychological well being. To enlist different techniques for effective management of the difficulties typical of this life stage. 

The birth of the first child in a family is an anticipated event, often the cause for intense joy and bliss. It is also one of the so called “normative crises” in the human life cycle. Taking care of a child involves so many changes in the daily life of the couple that the new parents often feel overwhelmed and underprepared. 

What aspects of this transition should we actually prepare for in order to adapt in the most effective way possible? How does having a baby at home affect the intimate relationship between the parents?

The moment a family transitions from “both of us” to “the three of us” ( or “the four of us” for those gifted with twins) is crucial to the further healthy development of that family.  Sometimes the pressure to the family system is twofold – from the changing conditions inside; and from the outside world, as many times other family members (for example the grandmothers) what to be involved and impose their own way of doing things.

What is postnatal depression, why does it occur and how to recognise it before it inflicts permanent damage?

The birth of a child demands the adults to embrace brand new social roles. Sometimes the balance between being successful as a parent and retaining your own space can be hard to achieve, especially in the early months.


  • To present valuable and accessible information about the characteristics of first child transition.
  • To encourage self assessment of skills and resources for managing the transition to parenting role. 
  • To generate ideas about useful methods of overcoming the eventual difficulties.
  • To provide a safe space for discussion of the subject in the conditions of full confidentiality.


  • Presentation of current research and knowledge about the relevant phenomenon.
  • Group work, role play – the participants work in groups on different tasks or cases
  • Group discussion of the relevant subject


In the planned workshop are invited to participate between 10 and 15 people from MODIS
