Sydney workshop – Managing common challenges in integrated family intervention for child conduct problems: Content and Process – 1-Day Clinical Workshop

In this 1-day clinical workshop, Professor Dadds presents on ways to manage common clinical challenges in the conduct of family intervention for common child behavioural and emotional disorders. Such challenges arise around engaging families, preventing dropout and achieving change when the parents’ own issues dominate. This workshop focuses on content and process strategies that can be used to maximise parental engagement, reduce drop-out, and facilitate positive change in difficult families. Specific examples will include behavioural family therapy for childhood conduct problems and childhood anxiety disorders. A process model of consultation will be presented that can, however, be used across a range of child and family problems. Professor Dadds will discuss how to address and negotiate complex cases and will draw on his extensive clinical and research experience. Case discussion, live examples and video examples will be used to demonstrate key points.

Learning Objectives:
• Explain key theoretical behavioural, attachment, structural, and cognitive tools that underpin family therapy for child behavioural and emotional disorders
• Learn techniques for engaging parents when challenges arise
• Acquire and further develop skills to train parents for change
• Extend skills in addressing broader family issues and managing complexity that can detrimentally impact therapy
