Engaging parents of school-aged children
Emerging Minds and Mental Health Professionals' Network (MHPN), Australia, 2018
The webinar features a facilitated interdisciplinary panel discussion of a case study. The panel is comprised of Sarah Seekamp (occupational therapist), Nicola Palfrey (psychologist) and Mandy Walsh (child and family partner and lived experience consumer). Daniel Moss, Emerging Minds’ Workforce Development Manager facilitates the discussion.
Through an exploration of child inclusive practice that focuses on children’s social and emotional wellbeing participants will:
- identify strategies to facilitate positive child-focused conversations with parents and children that uncovers their relationship strengths and vulnerabilities
- describe practitioner tools that help parents to focus on the developmental needs of their children when facing adversity, conflict or separation
- recognise the importance of regular shared playtime between children and their parents.
