Parent-Child Connection: Integrating neurobiology, attachment theory, and behavioral approaches to strengthen children and families
Friday, February 14, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (CST)
Friday February 14, 9am - 4pm
Have you wondered about direct ways to apply the insights of interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theory in your work with parents and children?
Join us for an all day training on a new therapeutic approach to working with individuals and families to decrease destructive patterns, increase positive connections, and nurture healthy attachments.
Drs. Elizabeth Sylvester and Kathy Scherer will present an integrated approach to working with children and their care-takers using key components of interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, and practical behavioral interventions to build security in families. Drs. Sylvester and Scherer have received excellent reviews from previous trainings at the University of Texas at Austin, the Texas Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, and the Austin Child Guidance Center. This training is intended for mental health providers, child development professionals, and all who work with children, parents, and their families (6.0 CEU, LMSW, LCP, & Psychologists).
- Emotional Regulation and Attachment in Action
- Memory, Narrative, and the Developing Self
- Learning, Discipline, and Relational Repair
- Social Media and the Family
- Conscious Parenting and Mindfulness
Each topic area will review up-to-date research, theory, and specific behavioral interventions. Clinical case examples will be used to bring the applications to life.
This training offers a practical and scientifically-based approach to build positive family patterns and mend attachment disorders. It provides tools to change negative parent-child patterns into positive and nurturing connections. Detailed handouts and references will be given at the training. No prior experience with these theories is required to attend, although familiarity with the material is welcomed.
Free coffee, tea, soda, water, and a variety of snacks will be available during the workshop. Parking is included with your fee. Lunch can be purchased at the Commons Cafe in the building at a reasonable price.
Seating is limited. Please bring a paper ticket or a mobile ticket to the conference.
We hope to see you there!
