The Professionals Intensive in Hand in Hand Parenting

Learn the latest developmental neuroscience and valuable new skills for supporting parents and children in your practice.

Emotional and behavioral issues are of real concern for increasing numbers of families. And the evidence is mounting that when stress is high for either the child or the parent, good support is needed for both. But it’s not always easy to bring parents useful, actionable information and help in a therapeutic setting so that both they and their children can move forward.

Join us for an eight-week intensive course in Hand in Hand Parenting, designed for therapists, social workers, early childhood educators, childcare providers, clergy, and medical professionals who serve and care about families. Your choice of class sessions. The online classroom is open and ready for you now.

Based on a new way of understanding emotional relationships in the family and strengthening the parent-child connection, the Professionals Intensive course will deliver:

  • Expertise in the Hand in Hand Parenting approach. You will practice in your own family and in your professional practice.
  • Discussion of developmental theory and neuroscience, with a focus on practical and experiential application.
  • Guidance on using these practices both in your family and with your patients.
  • Opportunities to share your own experience.

The Professionals Intensive in Hand in Hand Parenting meets the qualifications for 14 to 18 hours of continuing education credit (total depends on the length of your weekly mentoring call) for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, and/or LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.
