Need Help Managing Your Child's Behavior?
This seven-week parent workshop was developed by the pediatric psychologists at Children's Specialized Hospital to help parents learn how to manage their child's behavior. The course will be led by instructor, Shoshana Isenberg, Ph.D. and will discuss:
- Causes of misbehavior
- Setting limits. Dealing with tantrums.
- Managing sibling conflicts
- Developing and implement behavioral systems.
- Parent stress management, self-care and support system
This seminar teaches effective behavior management strategies for parents of children with challenging behavior. Facilitators will introduce parents to an engaging and interactive curriculum which includes education on how to analyze causes of misbehavior, and to use this information to develop appropriate discipline strategies. The primary focus is on limit-setting, effective ways to handle tantrums, creating behavioral incentive systems that really work, and managing sibling conflicts. Parents will gain confidence in their ability to manage stress and to cope with parenting challenges. While these tools are appropriate for parenting all kinds of challenging children, they are especially applicable for working with children who have been diagnosed with ADHD or Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
Sessions will meet on Wednesday evenings over the course of a seven week period: January 6, 13, 20 and 27 and February 3 and 10 (Follow up session April 13)
Each weekly session is from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
