Parental Conflict as a Traumatic Stressor for Children and Adolescents: Awareness and Ways to Intervene
This webinar is hosted by the Community Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) and later the Managed Care Technical Assistant Center (MCTAC)
Divorce rates in the United States are extremely common with between 40 and 50% of marriages ending in divorce. One in five children born to married parents will experience parental divorce and almost 50 of children born within a cohabiting, unmarried union. Given how commonplace parental separation and divorce are, its impact can be overlooked as a traumatic ore severely adverse event in a child’s life. It’s commonly understood that parental divorce and separation itself is not the traumatizing event but the resulting parental conflict that can negatively impact child and adolescent mental health. In this presentation. In this presentation participants will (1) gain a greater understanding of the ways that (non-violent/abusive) parental conflict can be traumatizing to children and youth, and (2) learn about therapeutic interventions to promote effective and healthy co-parenting.
