Working with Parents: Clinical and Ethical Issues

October 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm

$65 – $85

Live Interactive Webinar

Instructor: Joel Kanter, M.S.W., LCSW-C

Level: Intermediate

CEs: 3 CEs are available for $10 fee.

This workshop will discuss the clinical and ethical issues in working with parents when treating child (ages 8-12), adolescent (ages 13-19) and young adult clients. Using a family consultation model, the presenter will address–with each age group–the sequencing of parent, family and individual sessions, balancing the objectives of parental problem-solving, family dialogue and client privacy.

Using case vignettes within each age group, the workshop will illustrate how to engage parents in a collaborative therapeutic process and help them facilitate their child’s psychological and interpersonal functioning by providing appropriate levels of support and structure.

Finally, the workshop will discuss how to help parents with conflicting parental philosophies and approaches arrive at a workable consensus. This topic will include both intact and separated parental dyads.
