TREATING THE CHILD WHO LEARNS DIFFERENTLY
Saturday, April 14, 2012
Presenter: Rena Matison Greenblatt, Ph.D.
Children who learn differently present several challenges for the treating therapist. In this workshop, Dr. Greenblatt will teach the ways to recognize whether a patient may have a learning disorder, and if so, how psychological testing may be useful for the patient and family as well as for the treatment. She will discuss how to read a report and understand what it says. She will discuss how the learning challenges may manifest themselves in treatment. Another focus will be how the therapist may help a child with a learning disability and the challenges children may face in school, with family and with peers. Dr. Greenblatt will show in what ways working with a child with a learning disability may be similar to a standard child psychotherapy and in what ways it may be different. She will describe how she works with such patients, what resistances tend to manifest themselves most commonly and what real limitations these children may face, all of which impact upon the treatment. Also highlighted will be the transference and countertransference manifestations that come up in such work and the self-esteem issues that are so common. Finally, there will be an emphasis on how to help the child and family so they may work together to focus on the child’s strengths and successes.
