Working with Parents: Intermediate Level Workshop
Integrated Children's Services, Working with Families,
Ref: 1687 - Training workshop
Advanced one-day workshop for those who have already attended working with parents training
This intermediate workshop is intended for those who have already attended working with parents training or who have significant experience in working with parents in their day-to-day work.
Following the different parenting styles explored in the first session, this workshop will explore the neglectful parenting style with which the most consistently negative outcomes for children are associated.
We will also explore the concept of adult attachment, with particular regard to the development of negative parenting styles.
The session format will be a combination of presentations, discussion and experiential work.
- consider insecure attachment styles in children and how they develop
- develop an understanding of adult attachment patterns, e.g. dismissing, autonomous, preoccupied, unresolved
- explore the impact of negative parenting styles on emotional and cognitive development
- examine the neglectful or uninvolved parenting style and whether it is conscious or unconscious
- help parents understand the impact of unregulated stress
- learned behaviour and modelling: helping parents understand how empathy develops and building resilience and what impedes these processes
