Challenging Behaviors: Secrets to Effective Discipline
Do you ever immediately sense that a child is going to have a bad day? Join Dr. Mary Sheedy Kurcinka to learn ways to respond effectively and help a child stop and calm him/herself on those difficult days. During this hands-on workshop, Dr. Kurcinka will help you assess your interaction and develop a plan to turn those “thorny moments” into opportunities that invite children to be part of your “problem solving team.”
This workshop will help participants develop skills to:
- Understand challenging behaviors and under-developed self-regulation skills
- Recognize when children are in the “red zone” and struggling to calm themselves
- Implement effective emotion coaching and discipline to keep the children working with you even during the tough times.
- Develop ways to invite children to join you in becoming a “problem solving team”
