We will then examine the influence of psychiatric disorders on parenting, including understanding potential risks.  Finally, we will look at various family and multi-family treatment protocols designed to help families understand and manage mental illness and to strengthen cohesion and communication.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the symptoms, behavior, and risks associated with various mental health diagnoses, especially in terms of safety and self-awareness.
  • Analyze the specific challenges of different types of mental illness, such as psychotic disorders, depression, and trauma, and how these disorders influence parenting.
  • Explore treatment protocols that help promote mental health and healthy parenting, especially group and family interventions.
