Workshop: Parent Leadership & the Family Healing Process
Starting at birth, children satisfy their basic need for safety and security with their parents. This is true for all adolescents and young adults including those with a chronic mental, emotional, cognitive and behavioral health needs. These parents may feel overwhelmed learning that their child manages her emotions and intense feelings differently. The results can be all members of the family feeling confused, unsafe and overwhelmed.
Parents, as the leaders within the family, hold the key for the positives changes that will lead the whole family to the best and most healing outcomes. However, these necessary new skills and strategies are not inherent for most parents. Many parents are using their usual parenting tools without positive results. They then feel frustrated and discouraged because doing what they have always done is not leading to the hoped for changes or improvement for anyone in the family. For some, this can lead to feeling angry, helpless and hopeless. The focus of this seminar will introduce parents to the necessary Parent Leadership strategies and skills resulting in the Family Healing Process.
