Family law professionals are
ethically bound to base their opinions in science.
This dynamic and entertaining presentation teaches
the science of parenting and the art of crafting
child-centered parenting plans.
The morning program examines parenting objectively:
What are the risk factors for neglect and abuse? How
can we distinguish authoritative from authoritarian
from permission and disengaged parenting styles?
What does the literature teach us about the impact
of each of these styles on children's
well-being? Familiar television programs and
movies illustrate each point.
The afternoon introduces the Parenting
Plan Worksheet, Dr. Garber's soon-to-be
published guide for parents and professionals intent
on developing a child-centered parenting plan. The
sixteen modules of the Worksheet discussing facets
of the parenting plan are grounded in science. Each
is complete with a current annotated bibliography.
