Engaging Your Child’s Frontal Lobes: Techniques (not just Theory!)

One of the most challenging aspects of parenting a child with self-regulation difficulties lies in figuring out how to talk to the frontal lobes (which is highly regulating) instead of to the mid-brain (which simply floods the brain with more stress chemicals).  Repatterning requires focused attention and high repetitions.  The techniques help us create some new neural connections in a targeted fashion.

 

In this training, Dr. Don will cover:

  • The three-level brain and the stress response;
  • Words that invite observation rather than fight or flight;
  • Ways to build reciprocity;
  • How to develop more approach rather than avoidance;
  • Regulating shame;
  • Dealing with lying;
  • Teaching kids how to make reparation without losing face;
  • Words to NOT say and some better ways to accomplish your task.

Dr. Williams, a Southerner, received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Rosemead School of Psychology in Los Angeles.  He began specializing in adoption and attachment in his early career.  His study of clinical neuroscience led him into a more general focus in the area of self-regulation disorders.  He focuses on aiding people in understanding the biological drivers of the disorders he is treating, as well as practical, skill-based interventions to aid parents and children in the process of re-patterning so that everyone can regulate more effectively. He has a private practice in Palo Alto, and serves on the board of Sunset Youth Services in San Francisco. They provide attachment focused case management to high-risk kids. In his spare time, he is an avid sailor and hiker.
