Post Master's Training Program in Parent Education and Parent Guidance 2015–2016

This certificate program is an intensive training program designed for parent educators and/or clinicians who works with parents. Its goal is to promote a deepened understanding of the theories, values and principles that inform this work. There is a growing body of knowledge supporting the notion that parent guidance and the participation of parents in parent education programs enhances parent-child interaction and the development of healthy children in important ways. Participants will build a solid foundation of knowledge about parents and children along a variety of continuum. Development will be studied from infancy through adolescence. Seminars will also focus on the development of the parent-child relationship and the development of families. The inextricable links between each domain will be examined. In addition, an integrative seminar/ reflective supervision group will meet for ongoing consultation and application of new knowledge. The program will include: The Processes of Program Delivery and the Principles of Parent Guidance as well as five (5) full-day workshops with experts in the field.
