Family Therapy with Young and School-Aged Children: Challenging Children and Challenging Parents
Our children have a way of pushing out buttons like no other. Just like couples, parents and children can get into negative cycles. For example, some families get into a cycle that starts with the child misbehaving, followed by punishment, followed by more misbehaving and then more punishment. Another typical cycle involves over-involvement on the parent’s part and helplessness on the child’s part. This workshop will explore these difficult cycles between parents and their children and what we can do in family therapy to understand and shift these into more positive cycles. The workshop will use videotapes of family therapy sessions to illustrate family assessment tools to identify family patterns and therapeutic strategies to help families make positive changes.
