Instructor: Pamela Parkinson, PhD, LCSW
Friday, January 28, 2022; 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Location: Online via Zoom
Learn how the history of the biological families of our youth impacts their current functioning and how a family’s life cycle developmental challenges are intricately related to a youth’s own developmental challenges. We will review the importance of utilizing genograms and timelines with families in order to learn about their culture/stressors/life experiences and develop a full assessment. This information guides our case planning and service provision of all kinds. Without context, we cannot possibly understand what the behaviors of our kids mean or how we might go about intervening in ways that will decrease those behaviors.
