Date & Time: March 25 – April 8 4:30pm – 6:00pm
Location: Virtual

Part of the Ten-Session Seminar Series for School Psychologists, School Social Workers and School Guidance Counselors

Seminars meet via Zoom on March 25 and April 8 from 4:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m.

This Workshop is aimed at increasing our understanding of the stress that parents and children are experiencing during these difficult times. We will explore the intrapsychic and interpersonal strategies that work and those that don’t work.

A nonpathologizing model, based on Internal Family Systems Therapy, will be presented. We will explore together how teachers and school-based clinicians can translate this model for use in the classroom and at home.

Learning Objectives:

By the completion of this two-session workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize how children and parents mobilize Protective Parts to deal with this trauma and to recognize that these Parts can be helpful yet can also backfire, resulting in negative, unproductive cycles.
  2. Report on and harness the clarity and compassion of Self-energy for healing trauma.
  3. Develop strategies for introducing this Model to work with parents, children and families at home and in the classroom.
