The Parent Hope Project – a family systems-based intervention for parents

Date & Time: Thursday 18 May, 2023 @ 5.30pm to 7.00pm ONLINE

Presenter: Dr Jenny Brown

Fee: This event is for AAFT members only and is free

Jenny will describe how her research and Bowen family systems theory have assisted her in shaping a manualised clinical intervention. The fundamental principle is that if Family Therapists can assist a parent in discovering what they can adjust about their anxious interactions with a struggling child, the symptom bearer can begin to recover well-being. Jenny will outline the practice principles and the process for positive change where parents recovering ‘agency-based hope’ benefits the child’s development.

There will be time for questions and reflections.
