Tipping the Scales: Supporting the Intergenerational Needs of Families Impacted by Substance Use Disorders
On 11/8/23, Dr. Amanda Lowell of the Yale Child Study Center hosted this webinar, where participants learned about research linking the neuroscience of addiction and trauma to parenting struggles and developmental risks in families affected by parental substance use. The implications for parenting interventions that target parental mentalizing capacity and child attachment security was also reviewed.
Webinar attendees should be able to:
- Describe the impact of addiction and trauma on parenting, and understand the underlying role of neuroscience in the mechanisms linking these phenomena in families
- Apply knowledge about substance use and parenting research to understanding how interventions are developed and tested in families impacted by addiction.
- Define the term mentalizing and describe the principles of mentalization-based parenting support
- Evaluate how recent findings from studies of mentalization-based parenting interventions apply to their settings and the populations they serve.
