This presentation will address the why of the challenging parent, the parent who doesn't seem to engage as expected in the therapeutic process of their child, as defined by the professional. Once we understand why parents don't engage in the professionally defined process, we will address some simple but powerful strategies to support getting parents engaged and empowered.

This will be presented live via webinar on September 27 and a recording will be available for later access. When purchased, the link for webinar attendance will be given 48 hours before presentation.
