“ I’m looking for a framework that makes sense of the complexity of symptom development in children.”
Session 1: Understanding symptom development in children using a family systems lens
- How parent issues get redirected towards children
- How children are part of triangles with their caregivers
- What is an anxious child focus and how does it impact a child’s development?
- How different children experience different parenting focus.
Session 2: Understanding the child’s triangle with parents and the common parent style tensions in reaction to a vulnerable child
Session 3: What are the similarities and differences of this approach with other theories about parents and symptomatic children?
This can be done as standalone professional development without continuing onto the Parent Hope/Confidence training
It is possible to move straight to the parent coach training without completing required theory training seminars if you have completed an in-depth training program in Bowen theory. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an exemption, providing evidence of your previous training.
