Connect to Support: Goals, strategies, and ideas in connecting with young children and their families for optimal therapeutic outcomes: This workshop will explore the key components of a successful connection with both child and family in supporting optimal therapeutic outcomes. We will review overarching goals, key strategies for engagement, and specific ideas for use in sessions on your journey to optimal outcomes for each child. Imbedded in these discussions will be contributing components of childhood mental health that demand consideration as you connect to support. As well, we will focus on your connection with parents and the direct links this has to the child’s receptivity to intervention. Afterall, it is through connection that the door opens to allow you to support in the most positive of ways.
