Personal Best Summer Intensive: Adult Development and Sensitive Parenting for At-Risk Families with Young Children

This intensive short course prepares participants to implement Personal Best, a 16 session group curriculum and Home Visiting Guide for individual sessions. The training will focus on adult development as well as parent-child and family relationships.

Personal Best is a theory-driven prevention program that promotes parent mental health, social support, healthy coping and sense of self-efficacy in multiple roles. Sessions are divided into four modules that address different areas of role functioning: (1) role strain, (2) parenting, (3) relationships, and (4) work/productive activity.

Learning Objectives:

  • Enhance knowledge of the multiple influences on parent well-being and the parent-child relationship.
  • Understand the impact of stress on parenting behavior and the developing child.
  • Learn to help parents develop the social-emotional and executive function capacities to promote their child’s development.

Presenter:

In addition to her family therapy practice, Dr. Grossman is adjunct faculty at NYU’s Department of Occupational Therapy; public health and special education consultant and policy analyst; and creator of the Personal Best prevention program for parents.
