This programme is designed to give parents and carers the confidence to use reflective functioning to improve communication with their children. The course employs similar strategies to those used by play therapists, but they have been adapted to suit the family home dynamic.
Consisting of six two-hour virtual sessions, the programme aims to empower parents and/or carers to become experts and change agents in their own families. Attendees will learn the importance of adopting an ‘inside out’ process that focuses on relationship quality and internal motivation rather than behaviour modification. The programme also teaches parents and carers how to use reflective functioning to bridge any relational gaps in parental history.
With a focus on learning through playfulness, curiosity and supported practice, this course equips participants with the communication tools they need to help children reach their full potential.
