Parent Management Training – the Oregon Model (PMTO)

Date: 
Monday, August 7, 2017 - Thursday, August 10, 2017
Time: 
8:30 AM
Location: 
Minneapolis, MN
Sponsoring Agency: 
University of Minnesota, Ambit Network
Description: 

The positive effects of PMTO have been referenced by the American Psychological Association in its report to lawmakers and policy-makers "Gun Violence: Prediction, Prevention, and Policy" (December 2013): "Prevention research has shown that intervening with at-risk families to improve parenting skills can disrupt the pathway from early-onset aggressive behavior to delinquency in adolescence (Patterson, Forgatch, & DeGarmo, 2010)." PMTO, listed as an effective program on NREPP, engages parents/adult caregivers as the agents of change to strengthen resilience of traumatized children from preschool to adolescence. The intervention can be delivered in individual family (treatment) or multi-family group (prevention) formats) and can be delivered in homes, clinics, schools, or community settings. PMTO facilitator training, using the Learning Collaborative Model, occurs in two, free, in-person workshops at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, with on-going coaching following the trainings. Facilitators do not need to be licensed clinicians but ideally will come to train in groups of 2 to 3 providers. Training faculty include Drs. Abigail Gewirtz, Laura Rains, and Molly Willer.

After Deployment, Adaptive Parenting Tools (ADAPT)

Date: 
Monday, August 7, 2017 - Thursday, August 10, 2017
Time: 
8:30 AM
Location: 
Minneapolis, MN
Sponsoring Agency: 
University of Minnesota, Ambit Network
Description: 

There is a large body of evidence to show that intervening with parents to strengthen parenting, results in improvements for child/ren who have been exposed to traumatic stress. ADAPT is a Parent Management Training program for military families and was originally developed for National Guard and Reserve (NG/R) families, as these families face disparities in access to military-sensitive trauma-informed services, and NG/R service members are at higher risk for mental health problems including suicide. ADAPT has been tested in three randomized trials. The intervention can be delivered in individual family (treatment) or multi-family group (prevention) formats) and can be delivered in homes, clinics, schools, or community settings. Facilitator training, using the Learning Collaborative Model, occurs in two, free, in-person workshops at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, with on-going coaching following the trainings. Facilitators do not need to be licensed clinicians but ideally will come to train in groups of 2 to 3 providers. Training faculty include Drs. Abigail Gewirtz, Laura Rains, and Molly Willer.
