About This Workshop

Child and adolescent therapists tend to differ widely in their approaches to including parents in treatment. However, it’s helpful when you understand your child’s goals in therapy, adjust parenting approaches based on your child’s challenges and recognize when your child is making progress. Sometimes as parents we need to consider whether we have mental health challenges that may be affecting our child. Parent involvement in therapy varies based on age, strategies being used by the therapist and parent capacities. This conversation will highlight some best practices for parents who have children in therapy and answer any and all questions you may have about your child’s therapy experience. Join this workshop for more clarity on how you can help your child reach their treatment goals.
