The Emotional and Behavioral Impact on Children in Dysfunctional Families

Robert J. Ackerman, Ph.D.

This workshop will focus on the emotional and behavioral issues and problems for children who are living in an addicted dysfunctional family.  It will emphasize a developmental approach to children and will address why children in dysfunctional families are not all affected in the same way.  Intervention and the development of resiliency skills in children will be included.  Additionally, gender implications for intervention will be discussed.
