Assessing and making use of Children’s Response to Parental Conflict

Pre-conference workshop conducted by Wai-Yung Lee, Ph.D.

 

Date: October 25, 2018 (Thursday)

Time: 9:00-16:30

The Family Biofeedback Assessment protocol was designed to elicit a child’s physiological arousal (including heart rate, skin conductance, and peripheral temperature) when they are exposed to parental discourse. The arousal scores as obtained would then be used to identify what exactly in the parental conflict is causing the child’s anxiety. This goal of this assessment protocol is to provide clinical evidence on how the child’s presenting problem is linked to his/ her family dynamics, making it much easier for therapists to motivate the family to therapy.

In this one-day workshop, Dr. Wai-Yung Lee and her team will demonstrate step-by-step how this protocol can be applied to two Taiwan families with child and adolescent problems. Participants will have an opportunity to take part in this live experience and learn how to use this clinical tool in their everyday practice.

This protocol has been developed over a decade, during which over 200 Asian Chinese families have been assessed, covering a range of presenting symptoms including school refusal, eating disorder, anxiety attacks and child depression. Recently, the use of this protocol has expanded to understand children of divorced families.

Wai-Yung Lee, Ph.D. was awarded by the American Family Therapy Academy for her Distinguished Contribution to Family Theory and Practice in 2014, partly due to her invention of this protocol. She has been training therapists at the AAFT in Hong Kong and the Aitia Family Institute in Shanghai. AAFT is also in the process of accrediting Family Biofeedback Analysts who can conduct this protocol.

The workshop will be conducted in Mandarin with English translation.

Sadness, Self Harm And Suicide Attempts In Adolescents - How To Elicite Resources From Extended Families And Community

 

Post-conference workshop conducted by Maurizio Andolfi, M.D.

Date: October 28, 2018 (Sunday)

Time: 13:00-19:30

Language: English

Intense sadness & depressive episodes in adolescence are frequently misunderstood. These are often labelled and overmedicated as a mental disorder. In reality, these manifestations often represent an intense, emotional response to personal & family events like school failures, peer or social exclusion, parents’ hostile divorces, sudden loss, and other events.

In this presentation, Maurizio Andolfi will outline how to recognise the dramatic feelings of discomfort & despair experienced by frail adolescents. Through self-harm and suicide attempts, they communicate their personal fears and insecurities and signal open family conflicts and painful wounds of the past.

A multigenerational-systemic approach aims to restore self-confidence and safety in adolescents as well as to produce family transformation. Healing resources can be elicited by engaging families of origin, friends and community members in order to restore family harmony and social support. Systemic interventions to work jointly with hospital staff and treating psychiatrists will be illustrated too.

Prof. Maurizio Andolfi , child psychiatrist and master family therapist, Director of the Accademia di Psicoterapia della Famiglia in Rome, Editor in chief of the Italian Journal Terapia Familiare.
