Do you sometimes feel like you don’t know how to help your child? Children with behavioral health needs do not come with a manual! This workshop will offer a framework to understand the nature of your child’s behavior and methods to flexibly respond to the needs your child presents. Positive behavioral supports emphasize practical ideas about how to meet your child where they are and utilize their motivation to increase success.

Understanding and using Stage of Change concepts, maximizing provider involvement, and enhancing natural supports will be emphasized to provide usable tools that can be applied in a variety of real-life situations. Temper tantrums are disruptive behavior or emotional outbursts displayed in response to unmet needs or desires. Come and learn how to manage your child’s tantrums by using positive behavioral supports!

Supportive Educational Workshops, special events and activities are offered FREE to parents/grandparents/caregivers/educators of children with emotional or behavioral health concerns! Unable to attend in person? Often workshops are available as a webinar* by GoToMeeting™ with preregistration. Pre-registration is recommended, so we may notify you if a workshop is rescheduled or canceled. Changes are posted on our Facebook page.
