Parent Mental Health: Implications for Families and How Therapists can Provide Support
Children are dramatically impacted by the systems in which they live, including their families and communities. By some estimates, around 20% of children have at least one parent with a mental illness. Despite this considerable number, there still exists a significant stigma surrounding mental health treatment for both parents and children. Approaches including play therapy, parent-child interaction therapy, and family therapy can help support children and their caregivers as they cope with struggles related to mental health and other challenging family situations. This workshop will focus on how families are impacted by parent mental health, both common and extreme cases, as well as how clinicians can provide support for these children and their families.
Presenters: Tiffany Somerville, MS and Zori Paul, MA, NCC
