Working with Parental Self-Blame with Cognitive and Emotion-Focused Techniques
September 12, 2024 • 10am - 1:30pm MT - CE credit hours
EFFT research has demonstrated that when parents carry self-blame, not only do they suffer but their caregiving can be negatively affected as well. In fact, when self-blame is deep, typical strategies to lift self-blame, including reassurance, may be ineffective or even counter-productive. This training will provide clinicians with a theoretical foundation supported by a series of cognitive and emotion-focused strategies to transform caregiver self-blame.
Benefits of these interventions include:
· Reduced shame and self-blame
· Better quality of life
· Decreased defensiveness
· Increased sense of empowerment / engagement
· Increased access to caregiving instincts
Participants will receive step-by-step instruction and scripts to grow the confidence to implement interventions with parents post-training. A video demonstration will also be included.
No prior training required. Participation can be active or passive. This training meets criteria towards certification through the International Institute for EFFT. Videos may be included and therefore this training will not be recorded.
