Description

During this ‘Lunch & Learn’ session on Flexible Parenting we will explore how Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) can help parents to ride the emotional rollercoaster whilst staying true to their heartfelt desires and values for raising healthy and well-adjusted kids. We will explore key concepts and exercises that might help a therapist when working with parents.

Parenting is arguably the toughest gig known to humankind. Nothing truly prepares a person or relationship for this role. Parenting pulls for the greatest joys and deepest sorrows. Anxiety, guilt and anger are regular visitors in the emotional world of parents. When families are grappling with complex disabilities and chronic stressors the emotions obviously intensify.

This session will:

  • Explore how ACT can help parents manage the emotions that come with parenting, whilst still raising healthy and well-adjusted kids.

  • Address key concepts and exercises to help therapists working with parents

  • Present key strategies and technics for immediate implementation.
