How Can I Deal With My Child’s Challenging Behaviour?
This three-part workshop will not only provide you with a better understanding of why your child engages in challenging behaviour, but also strategies to address and effectively manage the behaviuor. It is suitable for parents whose challenges occur in home-based or community-based routines (eg. getting your child ready for bed, sitting down for a meal with the family).
You will Learn…
- Strategies for decreasing and dealing with problem behaviour by viewing it from a functional perspective
- Which routine to target first to promote success
- To create your own Support Plan to address a behaviour of concern
The last day of the workshop is dedicated to reviewing the experiences you had upon implementing the Support Plan you created.
At this workshop you will receive a workbook, watch videos demonstrating various strategies and be given an opportunity to practice what you have learned.
