A case study will be used to illustrate practical approaches to help parents develop a reflective stance. The parent-clinician relationship serves as the foundation for this non-linear and sometimes slow process. This depends upon the clinician’s ability to use both parent and child as partners, and to move flexibly between offering concrete support and encouraging the parent to reflect. Breakout groups will be used to provide a more interactive experience, and participation will be limited to the first 30 registrants.
Family service professionals such as home visitors and clinicians including nurses, social workers, psychologists, and family therapists will benefit from this training, in addition to other reflective parenting program staff and professionals in early childhood, infant mental health, public health, child welfare, and related fields.
The Alaska Association of Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health (AK-AIMH) has listed this training for the benefit of Alaska's professionals as part of our initiative Project Compass: Leading the Way to Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health Workforce Development. Project Compass is funded by AK-AIMH members and donors, the Alaska Children's Trust, and the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority.
