Bringing the Whole Child Into Therapy at MITPP

MITPP 2012 SUMMER INSTITUTE

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE VERY, VERY BAD: BRINGING THE WHOLE CHILD INTO THERAPY
Workshop: Saturday, July 14     10:00 AM – 1:00 PM  Instructor: Jill Bellinson, Ph.D.

Children are referred for therapy because of difficulties at home and school – they may be aggressive, demanding, anxious, or prone to tantrums. Classmates avoid them, and parents and teachers describe them as “impossible.” Many of these children begin therapy, quickly become attached, and love to play and spend time with their therapist. It’s a pleasure to be with them in sessions. In short, these children are like two different people: gentle, sweet children with their therapists, and angry, needy, oppositional children with parents and teachers.  This workshop will focus on ways to bring the whole child into treatment, to work with the loving and aggressive, the anxious and attached, the needy and obstructionist. Case examples will be used to demonstrate how to engage all sides of children in treatment, helping them to bring us their pleasures and pains, anxieties and anger, so that we can work together to help them alleviate their difficulties at home and in school.
