"Who's in Charge Here?": A Systemic Theory of Parenting
Seton Hall > News & Events 

FamilyThere are numerous articles and books written about family functioning and parenting techniques. However, little has been written specifically about theories of how to parent. In this workshop, part of the Continuing Professional Development Series for the Helping Professions, sponsored by the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies and the College of Education and Human Services, a theory of parenting, based on the concepts of the family emotional system and the intense emotion often seen in human behavior, will be presented.

Participants will learn how to utilize the theory to inform their clinical work with families with children. Techniques for parents to lower reactivity will be discussed, with a focus on the ways that the techniques embody the theory and how the concept of differentiation can provide direction and support to parents. Participants will acquire knowledge of how to convey this information to parents as well as how to guide parents in developing appropriate responses to their children’s challenging behavior.
