Co-creating Cooperative Partnerships with Reluctant and Demoralised Parents Workshop

In this “hands-on” practice-oriented workshop, participants will learn a collaborative strengths-based family therapy approach that rapidly fosters cooperative partnerships and integrates the best elements of empirically-supported family therapy approaches with clinical evidence-based practice wisdom to carefully tailor fit the treatment experience with the goals, preferences, theories of change, expectations, and unique needs of each family member. Participants will learn effective engagement and retention strategies to use with therapy veteran parents and their families. This treatment approach capitalizes on the strengths and resources of the parents, children, and key resource people from their social ecology and involved helping professionals representing larger systems to rapidly co-construct high quality solutions together.
