Description: This training is intended for clinicians and therapists working with parents of children and adolescents. In addition to an emotion-focused conceptualization of problematic parenting patterns, Dr. Lafrance will present tools and techniques to promote attitudinal and behavioral change in caregivers in a way that is supportive and productive.
This training also includes a module with practical strategies to manage challenging or conflictual co-parenting dynamics that impact on child/adolescent development and mental health.
– Identify markers of emotional processes underlying problematic patterns of caregiving / therapy-interfering behaviours in caregivers
– Apply tools and techniques to transform problematic emotional processes fueling problematic patterns of behavior in caregivers
– Apply tools and techniques to increase cooperation and collaboration between co-parents in serious conflict
– Discuss ethico-legal considerations related to increased caregiver involvement, including when caregivers are severely under-resourced
