Helping Children Cope with Lisa Dubinsky at MITPP

THE METROPOLITAN INSTITUTE FOR TRAINING IN PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY, THE METROPOLITAN CENTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH, and THE METROPOLITAN SOCIETY FOR PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPISTS invite you to A CLINICAL WORKSHOP: HELPING CHILDREN COPE SATURDAY, MAY 12, 2018
PRESENTER: LISA DUBINSKY, PSY.D.

As mental health practitioners who work with vulnerable children and adolescents how do we decide the best ways to intervene? How do we choose the best modality and technique? When is it most effective to work primarily with the child with occasional parent guidance, and when is it best to focus more on parent work? In this workshop, Dr. Dubinsky will discuss these issues in the context of key developmental topics that are relevant for children and adolescents. Some of the topics include:

1. Social and Emotional Development: Frustration tolerance; problem-solving; play and social communication; friendships and conflict; development of empathy.
2. Transitions: Separation; transition difficulty between places, activities, bedtime and sleeping; family changes including new sibling, moving, new caretakers; parents’ separation and divorce; illness and death.
3. Self-Regulation: Modulation of affect; balanced schedule and electronic devices regulation (parent); developing an inner voice/observing ego
4. Self-Esteem/Self-Concept: Body image; balance of self/other regard; externalization and internalization.

Learning objectives:
This workshop will help attendees gain understanding of developmentally appropriate stages of development and how to help children progress, gain understanding of how to work with parents around these issues, and gain a sense of how to intervene in helping children of various ages to cope.
