The Heart of Parent Development & Intervention

With an emphasis on typical parental functioning, this course provided students with information on the different developmental models and theoretical constructs involved in understanding various aspects of family functioning—especially parental development over time and the evolving parent-child relationship —and their impact on parent development during their child’s infancy and early childhood. This course emphasizes typical development with sidelines in psychopathology for the express purpose of reaching parents and working with them and the dyad effectively. Using discussion-centered instruction, we build a shared understanding and shared language. How to apply the knowledge in professional practice will also be cultivated with vignettes and discussion relating to participants’ own practice challenges, especially with outreach. Participants will review their discipline and systems’ approaches to intervention through a nuanced lens that is developmental, body-based, social-emotional, trauma-informed, and attachment sensitive.
