Watch Jon Carlson conduct an actual parent consultation session and an actual parenting group with moms who are in power struggles with their teenage children.
Therapists often find themselves in over their heads when parents seek their advice about a misbehaving child or teen. Expert Adlerian psychotherapist and educator, Jon Carlson, demonstrates how to bring the focus away from the child's behaviour and back to the parent's actions. In this video, you'll see Dr. Carlson consult with a mom whose 13-year old son back-talks on every chore and request. Then Carlson facilitates a parenting group, helping the parents shut down the power struggles with their teens so they can recognize when to give responsibility, when to back off and when to draw boundaries.
From watching this video, you will:
- Learn techniques to run effective parenting groups, including helping parents connect and leverage their own experience to help each other.
- Understand the key aspects of Adlerian parent consultation, including eliciting specific examples of the problems that have occurred, and encouraging shifts in parenting styles, which can result in significant changes in children's behaviour.
- Gain insight into how Dr. Carlson masterfully connects with parents, highlights their knowledge and expertise, and empowers them to try new things
