Behavior Management Workshop - English

These multi-session workshops enable parents and caregivers to learn the basic principles and concepts of Behavior Theory and their practical applications to the family’s behavior challenge(s) in a supportive and social environment. Parents are encouraged to put into practice between classes what they learn and share their success or challenge. Parents learn effective techniques to be used in a variety of settings (e.g. restaurants, stores, mall, park, special events, etc.), and how to focus on disruptive and potentially dangerous behaviors (e.g. self injurious behavior, aggression, destructive tantrums, etc.)
