Parents can play the key role in initiating and generating behaviour change in their children. Parents have the potential to inspire their children directly (by applying reinforcers and other behaviour modification strategies) and indirectly (by providing a safe, supportive and encouraging environment). As therapists, working with parents can enhance our potential to promote successful outcomes for our child clients. This course considers the approach required to initiate rapport with parents and encourage the adoption of interventions and home-based strategies that fulfill the needs of parents and children concurrently.
In this course you will learn: how to build rapport with parents; encouraging parents to talk; parenting styles; client types; behaviour modification strategies; and bringing counselling to an end.
