Working Successfully with Challenging Behaviors Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Child Care Resource
Instructor: Scott Noyes

Are these children spoiled? manipulative? stubborn? obstinate? pushy? The problem with these labels is that they imply that the children's behaviors are contemplated and intentional. We quickly find that usual reward-and-punishment strategies do not work with these children. Working with these kids often makes people feel frustrated, overwhelmed, guilt-ridden, and exhausted. Sometimes we reach the point where we feel the situation is hopeless. So, what do we do? This session looks closely at these children and works to develop systems that help them, support you, assist their classmates, and empower their parents.
