An overview of the use of ACT in the treatment of parents of dysregulated teens, this session will cover the similarities and differences with other parenting treatments for this population as well as the unique characteristics of this approach. You will learn specific skills to look at parents’ internal experience (i.e., thoughts, memories, feelings, and physical sensations) as a driver of ineffective parenting behaviors and the impact these in their teens’ behaviors, the cycle of conflict with their teens, and their relationship in general.
- Describe the “why” and “how” parents engage in experiential avoidance strategies and the impact of them in their teen’s behavior and the cycle of conflict.
- Demonstrate competency in delivery of core ACT interventions to move clients from experiential avoidance into flexible parenting.
