Missouri Counselor To Conduct Parent Training Seminar

Counselor to teach love-based approach to parenting, which creates stronger parent/child relationships. Eight-week course begins August 19 in Tarkio, Mo.

PRLog - July 10, 2012 - ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Maryville, Mo. – Missouri native and Licensed Professional Counselor Ken Thom will conduct an eight-week seminar, beginning Aug. 19, based on the book, “Beyond Consequences, Logic and Control: Volume 1.” The book, written by child behavioral specialists Heather Forbes and B. Bryan Post, presents a love-based approach to parenting.

“Parents and children will develop stronger relationships if the emotions we use to make parenting decisions are understanding, peace, and love, rather than tension, anger, and frustration,” said Thom, who has more than 25 years of experience working with children, parents, and families to assist them in facing and overcoming challenging behaviors, emotional stressors, addictions, and traumas

The eight-week seminar will be held each Sunday from Aug. 19-Oct. 7 from 6-8 p.m., at the First Baptist Church, 20432 Highway 59, Tarkio, Mo. The cost is $200 per individual, and $300 per couple, which includes child care. For registration and information, including early registration discounts, and available scholarships, please telephone (660) 736-4129 or email fbc@faithinhim.net.

“I’ve seen it all: alcohol and drug addiction; sexual, physical, and emotional abuse; mood disorders; ADHD and other behavioral disorders; lying; and hoarding,” says Thom, owner of Ken Thom Counseling, Inc. in Maryville, Mo. “This seminar can provide techniques for meeting and overcoming each family’s own challenges, no matter how large or small they may be.”

“Our children are facing a multitude of stressors today that we and our parents never dreamed of, which leads to challenging behaviors in our children. Some of the behaviors we’ll be addressing include lying, stealing, hoarding, aggression, and defiance,” said Thom, whose counseling philosophy utilizes Christian principles with the Post Institute Stress Model™.

Thom, who is also the author of “Christian Parent Wisdom,” received a B.A. from the University of Missouri, and Masters of Science-Counseling Psychology, from Northeast Missouri State University. He specializes in assisting individuals, families, and children in trauma or distress. For more information, visit http://kenthomcounseling.com/ or telephone (660) 562-2531.
