Abstract:

Emotional dysregulation (ED) in children is on of the most common reasons for referral to mental health professionals. Significant ED is understood to be a manifestation of a complex combination of physiological arousal/strong emotions and behavioral patterns, thus requiring a comprehensive treatment approach.

Parent management training (PMT) programs are commonly used to treat children presenting with ED and related disruptive behaviors. Most existing programs sequentially “layer” parenting strategies over the course of treatment and parents are taught to apply the strategies to separate target behaviors using various skills, with more significant behaviors addressed later in the program. As a result, parents may feel the order and pacing of parenting programs are initially “too slow” or may have difficulty implementing foundational parenting skills when significant ED is a primary concern, which may lead to poor treatment adherence or early treatment termination. Separately, individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) typically focuses on teaching the child emotion regulation skills. A growing body of research has focused on integrating these treatment approaches.

To that end, a theoretically-grounded, novel behavioral framework was developed to: a. help parents understand the underlying physiological, emotional, and behavioral components of ED in order to, b. better align parenting skills to different aspects and phases of ED, with the ultimate goal of, c. enhancing behavioral parenting skills focused on emotion coaching and de-escalation of ED.

The framework is grounded in theoretical and empirical bodies of literature related to behavioral principles underlying existing parenting programs, cognitive-behavioral and exposure therapies, and de-escalation and crisis management of significantly disruptive/aggressive child behavior.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to this detailed behavioral framework which they can actively integrate into existing PMT programs for school-aged children (~6-11 years old) presenting with ED. The workshop will utilize an interactive teaching method using clinical vignettes and audience case examples/questions to demonstrate clinical utility.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this workshop, the learner will be able to:

1. Review the physiological, emotional and behavioral processes underlying child ED.

2. Describe theoretical and empirical models used to develop existing treatment approaches.

3. Discuss specific skills that can be integrated into PMT for teaching parents emotion coaching and ED de-escalation skills.

4. Apply the framework and related skills when working with parents of children presenting with ED.
