About:

This 12-hour intensive Level 1 training is designed for infant mental health and early childhood specialists. Participants will learn about a new approach to early intervention with parents based on a theoretical model of cognitive and emotional development emphasizing reflective functioning or parental mentalization. This essential processing mechanism enables parents to understand that mental activity such as thoughts, feelings, needs, intentions, and desires (within both their children and themselves), which are not directly observable, underlie all human behavior. The ability to understand and respond to children’s behavior in terms of the mental states that motivate it is essential for strong parent-child bonds (i.e. secure attachment).

The training provides participants with a base of knowledge, a new way to work with the central issues in parent-child relationships, and a step-by-step method that can be utilized to help parents think about their children in a more reflective way. Parents are thereby supported to resist the temptation to seek quick or non-reflective behavioral solutions to the conflicts or problems they experience in relationship with their children.

Learning Objectives:

As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:

1) Discuss attachment research and theory, psychoanalytic developmental theory, and the importance of the concept of parental reflective functioning.
2) Use examples of specific attachment patterns to learn how to tailor effective interventions when working with parents.
3) Describe the practical application of parental mentalization theory in designing treatment strategies addressing a variety of issues that may emerge when conducting parent workshops.
4) Demonstrate techniques and exercises that facilitate inquiry and reflection in parents.

Co-sponsored by the New Center for Psychoanalysis.
