ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope – The Struggle of parents with special needs children

Welcome to ACT, taking hurt to hope. Join us today for a discussion about a special kind of struggle. All of us who are parents know that bringing up children is a challenge. For parents with special needs children, it may be even more of a challenge. In this program we are going to discuss about the special difficulties for families that have experienced trauma like death, violence, or children with severe emotional or behavioral problems or children with chronic illness.
Today we have with us Associate Professor and Director of the Early Childhood Research Clinic, Dr. Lisa Coyne from Suffolk University in Boston . Lisa is an internationally recognised ACT trainer and author of a book called The Joy of Parenting: An Acceptance & Commitment Therapy Guide to Effective Parenting in the Early Years (
