Webinar Description:

Many clinicians know to create lasting therapeutic change in a family, they must get buy-in from the parent(s), but engaging parents in a therapeutic setting can be challenging. Even experienced clinicians sometimes feel they are fighting a losing battle when working with parents who are resistant. Learning to work with parents more effectively increases therapeutic success, decreases cancellations and early termination, and lays the foundation for lasting change in a family.

In this 60 minute web conference, licensed clinical social worker and parenting coach, Mercedes Samudio, LCSW, will focus on what it means to work effectively with resistant parents and keep them engaged during the therapeutic process. Mercedes will share her experience working with parents and educating them on the importance of their role as head of a family system.  One complimentary CEU for this webinar will be provided via email to all registered OC CAMFT members. Members must be logged in for the duration of the webinar to receive a CEU. A recording will be accessible to Members only. Members of OC CAMFT are invited to submit questions for a Q&A period to membership@occamft.org.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the process of parental identity development, parental defense mechanisms, and parent shame.
  2. Describe strategies for developing a therapeutic relationship with parents.
  3. Implement strategies to manage and document crisis with parents and families.
