Parenting Skills Training Counseling

Parental Skills Training Counseling The Parental Skills Training is designed to improve parental effectiveness by providing a clear parenting philosophy and a set of positive parenting skills and strategies that can be used immediately to address a variety of child-rearing challenges and problems. Parenting is perhaps our most difficult job, and the most important responsibility we may ever have in our lives. Unfortunately, we receive little or no formal training in parenting, unless a crisis emerges. Often, parents either do what our parents did, or attempt the exact opposite, depending on our opinion of the parenting we received. No one provides us with clear guidelines about the right way to parent. Mr. Attryde employs a model of parent training that is established and respected, and focuses on finding the balance between leniency and strictness, while encouraging children to make adaptive decisions but in the context of maintaining appropriate parental authority.

Parenting Skills Training addresses parenting styles, the effects of discipline, and how children respond to various people and life events, such as divorce, stepparents, abuse, sibling conflict, poor academic success, bullying, or parental substance abuse. It provides a basis for teaching parents how to manage their children's behavior effectively, and how to intervene with specific child and adolescent problems. Parental Skills Training can help parents understand what children need from adults to foster their emotional and intellectual development.

Parenting Skills Training provides parenting skills training either within the framework of family counseling, or as part of individual counseling, to help parents manage specific behavioral problems or situations. Parenting skills training can also focus on general parent-child interactions. Often, the goal is to help parents avoid ineffective parenting responses, by learning effective ways of managing their children's behavior. Parents can also be taught strategies for managing children with special needs, such as ADHD children, children adjusting to divorce, and children diagnosed with specific psychological or behavioral problems.

When to seek Parental Skills Training Counseling Parenting skills training is not just for parents who feel their family is in crisis or their child or children are acting out in extreme ways. Parents are invited to seek insights into ways to effectively develop a mutual consensus about how to shape their child’s behaviors. Contact us for a free consultation.

Effective Parental Skills Training Counseling

Define your goals. Think about what you would like to get out of counseling. It might be helpful to write a list of events, relationship issues, or feelings that you think are contributing to your distress.

Be an active participant. This is your counseling experience, so be as active as you can in deciding how to use the time. Be honest with the counselor and give her or him feedback about how you see the sessions progressing.

Be patient with yourself. Growth takes time, effort, and patience. All of your coping skills, behavior patterns, and self-perceptions have been learned and reinforced over a long period of time, so change can be difficult and slow at times.

Follow your counselor's recommendations. Take the time between sessions to complete any activities suggested by your counselor. Counseling is intended to improve your life in the "real world," so making efforts to try out and practice new behaviors, approaches, or ways of thinking could be a crucial element to the success of your counseling experience.
