In collaboration with CGG Ahasverus and with a project subsidy from Flanders' Care (Department of Welfare, Public Health and Family) an online intervention program was developed last year to support parents with a child / young person with psychological and / or psychiatric problems. This program was named 'Parents Online'.
The tool is largely based on the Emotion-Focused Family Therapy model from Dolhanty & Lafrance (www.emotionfocusedfamilytherapy.org) and can be offered before, during or after a treatment process.
Parents are guided through 5 subsequent steps to help them cope better with difficult emotions of their child:
Step 1: Notice emotions
Step 2: Identify emotions
Step 3; Recognize emotions
Step 4: Meeting needs
Step 5: Working together on a solution
An illustrative video is shown for each step and parents are offered exercises that they first perform in theory and then in practice.
