Conversations: Taking the Focus off the Problem Child Using a Bowen Family Systems Theory Approach
April 22 at 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EDT| $65
Speaker: Carrie E. Collier, PhD, LPC, CRC
Dr. Collier’s experience, as a mental health specialist in Head Start, afforded her the opportunity to shift the primary anxiety focus off the child. Typically, the helping professional’s priority and energy centers on the symptoms in the child and his/her behavioral problems. The presenter’s focus on differentiation of self in the classroom, coupled with increasing parent and teacher awareness of differentiation of self, promoted more opportunities for flexibility and maturity in the system.
Members of the public are invited to attend screenings at the Bowen Center for $30/meeting.
