Childhood Disruptive Behavior Disorders are on the rise! Tantrums, anger, defiance, threatening behavior …
How can we as therapists more effectively decrease acting-out behaviors and help repair, rebuild and create strong parent-child relationships?
Watch me, Clair Mellenthin, expert in child and family trauma and attachment, as we dive into the impact of Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder on children, teens, and their families. You’ll learn effective, powerful, evidence-based play therapy interventions including guided imagery, mindfulness, expressive arts, and sandtray play – all of which include parent-child relationship enhancement activities.
This workshop will show you how:
the impact of attachment plays a role in the etiology in childhood disruptive behavior disorders
to utilize attachment-centered play therapy techniques to treat these diagnoses in children
to strengthen parent-child relationships
to improve overall self-esteem and confidence – giving the child tools to control their challenging symptoms and help heal the family system.
