What to Say to Kids When Nothing Seems to Work: A Workshop for Mental Health Professionals and Parents

Adele Lafrance, PhD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars:

In our culture, it is normal for caregivers to respond to their child stress and distress with reassurance and problem-solving. However, in some instances, these strategies lack effectiveness, leaving everyone feeling frustrated. With a dose of humor and plenty of real-life examples, participants will learn why, when and how to use emotion-focused communication skills to strengthen relationships, increase cooperation and respond more flexibly to strong emotional reactions in children and teens, including expressions of worry, anger, hopelessness, even silence. Sample scenarios and scripts will be provided for participants to customize based on their caregiving style and their child’s personality, and the presenter will facilitate a demonstration with a real-life scenario. Suitable for parents, grandparents, and other caregivers of children and teenagers, as well as professionals working closely with families, What to Say to Kids When Nothing Seems to Work is a workshop that offers concrete tools for efficiently navigating the twists, turns, and sometimes total chaos of life with kids.
