DECEMBER EDUCATIONAL LUNCHEON! WITH SARA CLOOSTERMANS, LMFT

Friday, 11/14/2014

PARENT-CHILD ATTUNEMENT SKILLS FOR MOMS WHO DON’T ALWAYS FEEL “GOOD ENOUGH”

This presentation is geared towards providers working with parents of children aged 0 to 30 months old, who will become familiar with the following concepts:

  • the parent as a “secure/safe base”
  • attunement
  • (secure) attachment
  • brain-related concepts: sequential, use-dependent, complexity, plasticity, cortical modulation

Attendees will learn about:

  • the significance of sensory activities for healthy child brain development
  • the importance of positive communication (both verbal and non-verbal)
  • the “still face” experiment
  • how to help children with emotional regulation
  • skills to manage behaviors and what to avoid
  • how to repair minor ruptures in the parent-child relationship

The ultimate goal of the presentation is to empower providers to boost parents’ confidence: they are “good enough” parents already, even though they don’t always feel that way (“good enough” being better than perfect when it comes to parenting) J

Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn the very basics about a child’s brain development;
  2. Participants will learn how to help parents realize that they really are “good enough” moms; they will learn how to give confirmation to the primary caregiver that they have already been using a lot of the attunement and communication (both verbal and non-verbal) skills for healthy attachment with their child(ren);
  3. Participants will walk away with several new practical tools to improve sensitivity and responsivity (or when not to respond) and, as a result, to improve secure attachment

This Course meets the qualifications for 1 hour of continuing education units for MFT’s, LPCC’s, LEP’s and/or LCSW’s as required by the Board of Behavioral Examiners.

WHEN FRIDAY, DEC. 5TH, 12-1:30PM
WHERE 8861 VILLA LA JOLLA DR CA
