Objectives
  1. Evaluate what Internal Family Systems model of therapy brings to parenting with the “Parts” concept.

  3. Demonstrate how to help parents lead from a place of power and set limits for their children while still expressing love and support.
  4. Differentiate among the various parenting styles vs. attachment styles and how they influence your client’s parenting approach.
  5. Propose an IFS-informed approach to co-parenting that helps promote improved intrafamily relationships.
  6. Apply the “triggering agreement” intervention when working with clients around resolving parenting issues that arise for them.
