Course Description

Clients, typically children, tend to be the topic of therapeutic intervention, but a good intervention is entirely dependent on their caregivers. This 3-hour course will explore the relationship with caregivers in the process of a client relationship. Topic covered will include the spectrum of parents, and meeting the parents where they are by understanding their process in their own journey. How can you be the supportive and understanding practitioner whom caregivers trust and feel confident in? This class will help you raise your awareness and build your capacity for respecting the spectrum of families you see in your practice.

No prerequisites.
