ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope – Struggling in Daily Conflicts with Children

Welcome to ACT taking hurt to hope.Today we are going to discuss about the difficulties involved in parenting. We see on TV and in popular media, often program for ‘so called’ Out of control children. This has resulted in all kinds of treatments for children with the aim of controlling their behavior. Probably children are pretty much the same as they have always been but the context arounds us as parents has changed. Rather than focusing on the undesirable behavior of your child you might want to look at this from a different perspective. How you are interacting with your child.

Todays guest is Dr Martin Forster, a clinical research at the Karolinska, licenced psychologist and psychotherapist working with parents and kids. Martin also gives parents advice in a column iDr Martin Forstern the National Swedish daily newspaper.
