- Identify psychotherapy treatments that improve outcomes in parent mental health, child mental health, and parenting quality
- Understand how emotion dysregulation is a transdiagnostic feature of many mental disorders and also a key developmental task during early childhood
- Understand the theoretical, practical, and research base between doing dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills with parents versus doing DBT combined with parenting interventions; further, be able to identify concrete examples of how DBT skills for parents may be able to enhance parenting quality and improve child emotion regulation
