A Live, Interactive Webconference
Thursday, 3/10/22, Venango County via Live Interactive Zoom
Children treated for serious emotional problems in community agencies often live in multi-stressed families. These families face grave and chronic personal, social, and economic challenges which can impede caregiving and disrupt family process. Developmental science suggests that the parent-child relationship is one of the most important protective factors for children who are struggling, yet it is severely threatened in multi-stressed families. This workshop presents an attachment-focused eco-systemic lens for identifying risk in the parent-child relationship, and how to use experiential methods such as enactment to help strengthen these relationships. This interactive training will demonstrate concepts and methods through review of treatment videotapes.
As a result of participating in this workshop, therapists will be able to:
- Describe the science on the role of the parent-child relationship as both a risk and protective factor
- Identify common psychological and relational barriers which can create ambivalence in caregiver’s commitment to leaning into the parent role
- Describe how to use enactments to facilitate emotional connection and boundary setting
