SU3 - Delighting in Each Other: Helping Foster and Adoptive Families Bring Back the Joy

Oct 14, 2012 9:00am ‐ Oct 14, 2012 12:00pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $59.00


When foster and adoptive families enter play therapy treatment they are exhausted and discouraged. Participants will delve into the current models for treating these families and engage in frank discussion, and perhaps healthy debate, about what works and what doesn’t.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe a pattern of cue/miscue behavior in an attachment disturbed dyad
  • List three intervention models currently in use to treat attachment disturbed families
  • Describe the potential dangers of ignoring and time outs with attachment disturbed children
  • List one aspect of traditional parenting practices and how this must be done differently with a child who presents with the neurochemistry of fear



  • 3.00 - CE Hours/Credits
