ESDM Remote parent coaching workshops

What is the Remote Parent ESDM Workshop?

Professionals practicing as Certified ESDM Therapists for six months or more will learn about the foundational principles of P-ESDM communication, coaching, and teaching strategies over 5-6 weeks. Participants will meet weekly with a certified P-ESDM Coach to review videos of their work with clients/patients they are presently working with.


Weekly sessions will also include didactic and reflective exercises based on family-centered practices, adult learning strategies, behavioral principles, and motivational strategies. Upon acceptance to the workshop, participants will receive access to the most current P-ESDM planning and treatment materials.    


The ESDM Training Program invites ESDM Certified Therapists to participate in the ESDM Parent Coaching Workshops. The UC Davis MIND Institute Training Program currently holds Parent Coaching Workshops several times yearly.
