Working on the principle that the rejected parent holds the split off and denied aspect of self that is necessary to give a sense of integration, this seminar is for parents of older children and is focused upon therapeutic parenting skills and understanding. Working with the principles of assisting children with disorganised attachments, this seminar will walk you through the key skills of therapeutic parenting which are adapted for this group of children.
This session is suitable for parents and practitioners, and offers an introduction to understanding alienated children which will cover the dynamics that cause alienation, the different ways of conceptualising the problem, detailed analysis of the attachment disruption that the problem causes, and an introduction to how to respond effectively to that in parenting or practice with alienated children
Delivered via The Lighthouse Project, Elyse is looking forward to introducing us to a brain-based therapy that "resets" neural networks and supports the re-integration of the body and the brain. The Lighthouse Project, is designed to bring as much help to families affected by relational trauma in divorce and separation as possible, all at low cost. Some services will be delivered via the gift economy where the recipient decides what they will pay for the service.
Based on the handbook for parents, Understanding parental alienation: Learning to cope, helping to heal by Karen Woodall and Nick Woodall (Charles C Thomas, 2017), this one-day workshop will provide parents with the knowledge to help them to understand the dynamics that have led to their child's withdrawal, and the insights and skills to build strategies for change, and bring healing for themselves and their children.
The Family Separation Clinic has adapted therapeutic parenting strategies to meet the needs of alienated children and this workshop is designed to teach you to become confident in parenting your children therapeutically. It has long been said that the best therapist for alienated children is their own healthy parent and this workshop enables you to become skilled in all aspects of parenting therapeutically to bring your children back to health.
