Parenting in SPACE Training Session presented by Billy Kaplan
We are all perfect parents who employ just the right approach for connecting with our children. Except when we don’t. Or when our best just can’t reach them because their experiences of trauma in early childhood make connecting with us particularly challenging. While it is frustrating if we miss the mark with our kids, we don’t need to give up. Instead, we can move beyond traditional parenting approaches to therapeutic parenting – consciously using as many interactions as we can to create healing opportunities – and increase our sense of parenting success. In this workshop, Billy Kaplan, LCSW, will help us understand our children’s behavior in new ways, and he’ll help us learn new approaches for reaching our kids using the skills of therapeutic parenting.
