Course Format

Live interactive webinar: Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussion by unmuting and directly asking questions or through the chat feature in Zoom. 


Manhattan Psychology Groups' psychologists, experts in family/child therapy, parent skills and engagement, and psychoeducation are facilitating a parent skills workshop to offer training, support, and resources to mental health clinicians. This training will provide clinicians with information on strategies that parents, and caregivers can use at home to support their families. Participants in the workshop will receive psychoeducation on childhood disorders and diagnoses, (i.e., anxiety, ADHD, ODD, mood disorders and ASD) often encountered by pediatric clinicians in their offices. The workshop will cover parent skills topics such as: Effective parenting styles; How to set up home routines that promote independence; Problem-solving everyday family conflicts; How to navigate picky eaters, potty training and power struggles; and How to appropriately praise children.

The workshop will expose clinicians to Evidence-Based practices, including Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and Parent Management Training. These parent training practices allow clinicians to educate and empower parents, thereby improving the family’s overall functioning. Traditional family therapy models often inadvertently push the family away or make the parents feel badly about their parenting. PCIT and PMT engage the parents in treatment of the child and teach them skills or “parenting tools” without making it seem like the parents need “fixing”. These parent training models are effective in increasing parental engagement and reducing parental resistance, providing the education and skills needed for parents to be better able to help their child. By the conclusion of the training, attendees will have general tools and strategies to apply to specific diagnoses and challenges.

Training will utilize a combination of instruction, demonstration, and practice to teach a variety of skills aimed at improving the development of effective parent skills.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize and understand different types of parenting styles.
  2. Differentiate between traditional functional family therapy and Evidence-Based parent skills training.
  3. Describe how to engage family in treatment of the child in a way that increases their self-esteem; decreases anxiety, anger or frustration; improves the adult-child bond; and increases positive behavior.
  4. Demonstrate your ability to offer training, support and resources to parents and caregivers.
  5. Analyze better ways of responding to difficult situations including treatment resistant parents and families.
  6. Employ concrete skills that can be used to support parents’ responsiveness to their child’s behavior.
  7. Formulate ways to collaborate with collateral caregivers (e.g., teachers, clinicians) to improve family functioning inside and outside the home.
