Groups for Parents

Empowerment and support for parents living in exile


A MindSpring group for parents is for you if you have come to Denmark as a refugee or an immigrant and is the parent of small children or adolescents. 

This MindSpring group has a special focus on bringing up children and being a parent in a new country and a new cultural setting. 

In the group programme, you will have the possibility to discuss and gain new knowledge together with other parents who are in the same situation as yourself and who share your native language. These are the topics of the group programme:

  • Being a parent in a new country
  • Different ways of bringing up children
  • Social control
  • Marriage and gender related issues
  • Idenitity and cultural differences
  • Stress and trauma

A MindSpring group for parents can empower and support you as a parent and develop your parenting skills to bring up your children in a transcultural setting while keeping them safe and helping them fulfil their potential.

In MindSpring, you can gain new knowledge and reflect on the challenges you experience and the choices you have to make when bringing up your children. Hence, MindSpring can give you new tools and ways of dealing with the issues related to bringing up your children in a new country. By participating in the group together with other parents like yourself, you will be given the possibility to learn from each other and exchange experiences.
