In our work with children and young adolescents, treatment gains are more likely to be retained if parents have changed too. This requires a more explicit model of work with parents in conjunction with their child’s therapy. This one-day training will cover key principles, and techniques for doing Concurrent Parent Child Psychotherapy, a model developed by Psychoanalysts Jack and Kelly Novick, informed by interpersonal neurobiology research. It emphasizes building two systems of self and dyadic regulation, staying equidistant between the needs of parent and child, parenthood as a developmental phase, and an explicit framework for building and maintaining a therapeutic alliance with parents. The workshop will address specific anxieties parents bring to each phase of treatment. Participants will role-play scenarios of typical dilemmas clinicians face when working with parents and children and examine biases one has to overcome to fully engage parents in the overall structure of a child’s treatment. Case material will be presented on each phase of treatment.
Susan Goodman, LCSW has worked with children, adolescents and their families for more than 25 years, in private practice, schools, and hospitals. Committed to incorporating parents into the overall structure of child and adolescent treatment, she uses a framework derived from her training in Concurrent Parent Child Psychotherapy with Kerry Novick, Ph.D. This model fosters adaptive growth in parents alongside the growth in their child.
She is an Adjunct Lecturer in the NYU Silver School of Social Work where she teaches about parent work. Ms. Goodman previously served as Senior Consultant to ChildFirst where she trained and supervised Clinical Directors and their teams in Trauma-Informed Parent-Child Psychotherapy. At the Rye Country Day School, where she worked as the Middle School Counselor, Ms. Goodman also provided support for parents.
She earned her MSW at NYU Graduate School of Social Work and received her certification in the psychoanalytic treatment of children and adolescents from The Post Graduate Institute and Institute for Child, Adolescent and Family Studies.
