Parents are dealing with a lot right now. If a parent was difficult before Covid, in its aftermath, they may be even more challenging. If you’ve ever had to deal with an over-bearing or difficult parent, this workshop will help you work effectively and efficiently together. The presenter, Jodee Blanco, will provide specific strategies on how to handle the irate, unreasonable, parent who storms into your office, frustrated and unwilling to listen, and begins bullying you or the school.
If you’re a mental health professional who works in the school system, you know firsthand how difficult it can be to calm that parent down and get them to listen and behave like an adult. How do you communicate with the irrational parent, motivate him/her to work with you in everyone’s best interests? What shouldn’t you say to an angry, bullying parent and why, and what should you say and do? What are the three tenets of emotional credibility in communication and how do you apply those tenets to successfully win over even the most stubborn, challenging parent, inspire understanding, and most importantly, collaborate on viable solutions that you implement successfully together? JOdee will walk you through step by step how to transform a tense situation with a parent into an opportunity to forge a productive, rewarding partnership that enriches the school, the student, and the student’s family.
After attending this introductory-level workshop, participants will be able to:
(1) Identify strategies for working with difficult parents
(2) Discuss the use of the three tenants of emotional credibility in communicating with difficult parents
(3) List the benefits of creating positive partnerships with the parents of their clients.
