Adlerian Parent Consultation
by Jon Carlson
Watch Jon Carlson conduct an actual parent consultation session and an actual parenting group with moms who are in power struggles with their teenage children.

Part of the 11-video series: Child Therapy with the Experts
Therapists often find themselves in over their heads when parents seek their advice about a misbehaving child or teen. Expert Adlerian psychotherapist and educator, Jon Carlson, demonstrates how to bring the focus away from the child's behavior and back to the parent's actions. In this video, you'll see Dr. Carlson consult with a mom whose 13-year old son back-talks on every chore and request. Then Carlson facilitates a parenting group, helping the parents shut down the power struggles with their teens so they can recognize when to give responsibility, when to back off and when to draw boundaries.
