Parent and Child Consultation Training:
Group leaders will work with Peter Loft to receive consultation on their parent or child groups (half of the day will be devoted to each program). Group leaders will bring short video clips of their groups with a goal or question for consultation. Group leaders will show their videos, and then will work collaboratively with the group to address questions and to brainstorm solutions to issues that have come up in groups. Through role play and practice, group leaders will try out alternative ways of responding or dealing with parent and child issues from their groups. Common issues that are discussed in parent group consultation are: how to set up and support role plays, how to mediate effective vignette discussions, how to pull out key principles, how to manage resistance, and how to tailor the intervention to parents’ needs. Common issues that are discussed in child group consultation are: how to use the puppets in an effective way, how to incorporate behavioral practices into circle time, how to manage challenging child behavior, how to individualize treatment to each child’s goals.

At the end of the Parent Consultation participants will be able to:

  • To understand how to tailor the group to meet the needs of different parent populations.
  • To understand how to scaffold role plays and behavioral practices so that parents are successful in practicing new parenting skills.
  • To use the consultation group to brainstorm and then practice new group leader skills to enhance the effectiveness of the IY parent groups.
  • To use the video review process to watch segments of the parent groups and then engage self-reflection and peer discussion to generate ideas for more effective responses.

At the end of the Child Consultation participants will be able to:

  • To understand how to tailor the child groups to meet the differing needs of the individual children in the group.
  • To understand how to set up role plays so that children can practice new skills in the groups.
  • To use the consultation group to brainstorm and then practice new group leader skills to enhance the effectiveness of the IY child groups.
  • To use the video review process to watch segments of the child groups and then engage self-reflection and peer discussion to generate ideas for more effective responses.
