THE ROLES WE PLAY
Amy Miner, LCMHC
Parents often feel alone, isolated and on an emotional roller-coaster when they suspect or learn that their teen is / may be using substances. Join this session and examine the roles parents play at these times. Learn how to help parents better understand these roles, shift roles and keep the relationship in-tact while determining next steps and treatment needs.
After hearing from this practitioner, participants will be able to:
(1) Outline the basic concepts associated with relationship roles and explain why these roles matter when substance abuse is suspected or confirmed; and,
(2) Provide a framework of these concepts to parents who are making decisions about therapy / treatment needs for their kids/teens.
