Family-Centered Treatment: A Clinical Model for Working with Parents and Children with Special Needs
Parents who have children with developmental, learning and behavioral challenges experience cumulative stress and an urgency to help their child function optimally at home and in school. They often feel depleted or inadequate as they attempt to sustain healthy family relationships and family routines. This course will explore the bi-directional impact of a child’s disability on parent and family well-being. The Resilient Families: Children with Special Needs Project team will use case presentations to illustrate the structure, process and therapeutic goals of family work. This course is appropriate for clinicians who work with children with autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, sensory processing disorder and other developmental disabilities. Enrollment is limited!
