    Family Therapists with Children’s Mercy Kansas City

    Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an innovative, empirically-supported treatment shown to help children whose behavior is disruptive enough to cause serious problems. PCIT aims to restructure interactions between parents and their children in an effort to reduce disruptive behavior and improve family relationships. Participants will gain understanding of the evidence base supporting the efficacy of PCIT, an overview of treatment components, and practice 1-2 PRIDE skills. 

    PM SESSION 12:30-3:45 3.0 CEHs

    Hold My Hand: Walking with Children and Teens Through Their Grief Journey

    presented by Shari Scott, MA, LPC, NCC
    Therapist and Grief Support Specialist at Solace House

    Anticipating and/or experiencing a major loss often induces high stress, quickly depleting energy and emotional reserves. Participants will learn about how grief is manifested in childhood and the importance of healthy grieving. Identify typical vs. complicated grief, the “tasks of grieving”, and dos and don’ts when supporting children during times of grief. Participants will leave with tools that will make them better equipped to support and talk to students about grief and loss.

    Please note: Pre-registration ends 10/27/17. Pre-registration ensures your seat, lunch for full day attendees, and a CEH certificate the day as you leave. Late and walk-in registrations will be available until sold out and will not guarantee you the above.
