Description

This course is a two-part interview series between Dr. Caroline Buzanko and Dr. Jeremy Sharp on the parent experience of the assessment process.

In part one, they discuss:

  • The importance of the parent experience and how parents have historically been overlooked during their child’s assessment
  • The “hero’s journey” as a metaphor for parents going through the assessment process
  • The disconnect between the work psychologists (and other mental health specialists) think they are doing and the way parents actually perceive it.

In part two, they continue the conversation by talking about:

  • How to empower parents
  • Several concrete changes you can make to your testing approach that will reduce anxiety and confusion and make the testing process easier for everyone.

Here are a few other topics to look out for across the two episodes:

  • Paradigms of assessment
  • How to gather parent expectations about the assessment process
  • Mistakes clinicians make during the assessment process
  • How to support parents after the evaluation
  • Why Dr. Buzanko does testing BEFORE the intake
  • The importance of a second feedback meeting
  • Why your relationship with parents is instrumental in kids’ success
  • Defining values for your practice and bringing those to life with the evaluation process

Target audience:  Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses
