Cushla Clark and Selina Reid offer this training workshop to health and social service professionals to develop and expand abilities to work effectively with parents’ anger and harmful behaviour toward children.

Workshop content

Working with parents whose anger harms their children can be challenging and distressing. Understanding anger and how to work with it assists us to know how to intervene effectively to take the heat off the child while supporting parents’ development. This workshop offers a systemic perspective on both parent-child dynamics and our own practice.  You will gain insight and skills to assist parents to manage and resolve anger towards their children. There will be opportunities to gain awareness of your own responses to anger and the effect of these responses on your work. 

Training methodology

This workshop combines theory and practice utilizing a range of experiential methods and teaching. Learning occurs in an environment of confidentiality, acceptance and open enquiry. Participants are encouraged to bring challenges from current work situations.

Participants

 The workshop is suitable for a wide range of professionals who work with parents and families.  This includes those in community services, health, welfare, social development, education, corrections and justice sectors.
