This training will begin with strategies to connect and maintain contact with parents who are struggling to parent children who are challenging due to special needs or difficult temperaments. Parents, who themselves have difficulty connecting with their children, will find it difficult to model and coach behaviors they want for their children. Principles from the Adlerian approach to parenting, mindfulness exercises, and relevant principles of Gestalt and child-centered play therapy will be discussed, demonstrated, and practiced.
