This training session is a part of our 2022 Community Response to Child Abuse Conference. Purchase of this content opens access to all 19 sessions and corresponding continuing education credits.
Common parenting patterns of parents who physically abuse their children will be discussed, which include inconsistent responses to their child’s behavior, developmentally-inappropriate expectations of the child, ineffective strategies at managing their child’s behaviors, and escalating emotional reactions to the child. Pathways from parental frustration to abusive behaviors will be explained. The audience will learn specific strategies that can be taught to parents to reduce the likelihood of physical abuse and to strengthen the parent-child relationship. An evidence-based parent-training intervention, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, will be described.
