Pediatrics – Good Grief Program


General Training Programs – Workshop IV

Help! Real Life Strategies for Working with Parents of Children with Special Needs When Conflicts Arise

This workshop is designed for the specialists and classroom teachers who work principally with students with special needs, grades pre-K through 12. We will explore the tension between school and parents that often frustrates even the most patient professional and often interferes with the child's progress. Beneath the tension and anger may lie the parents' hidden, unresolved grief that is inevitable but unacknowledged in our culture.

Specific strategies for talking and working with parents of children with special needs will be offered. In Los Angeles schools, where this workshop was field tested, SPED teams are enthusiastic about their new skills, insights and strategies that have made their work with students with special needs and their parents rewarding again.
