Based on the best-selling book by Faber and Mazlish, participants will be introduced to proven skills benefiting anyone who works with children or youth. Participants are cast in the role of parent/caregiver and can strengthen their ability to help children/youth deal with their feelings, engage cooperation, and encourage autonomy.
Learn effective praise techniques, effective alternatives to threats, warnings, nagging and lectures, and how to help children to step out of negative roles. Each new skill is illustrated with cartoons to increase retention. There will be opportunities to practice new skills, stimulate problem solving around “stubborn” behavior management problems, and to adopt a communication building style that invites trust. The group will practice on typical behaviors of children from two through teen.
