Description

This will be a small group, case discussion based class, focusing on the clinical issues in working with siblings of children with neurodevelopmental challenges. I will emphasize helping participants reflect on their own experiences in their work with children and parents. I will provide an overview in the first class, as well as my webcast on this topic prior to the class. The following 6 classes will include case presentations by participants, and then I will provide a concluding meeting.
