A comprehensive one-day training course that provides skills to teach parents and carers of 2-12 year-olds skills to manage their children’s difficult behaviour.
It is based on two underlying perspectives on parenting: first, that children can be taught to respond more flexibly when they are frustrated or upset and second, that parents and carers can be taught easy-to-use skills they can use at particular parenting moments.
The professional training includes role play, group discussion, worksheets and videos. This one-day course equips professionals with the knowledge to teach parents the program over three sessions and/or how to teach the tenets of the program in a few one-to-one clinical sessions
Each participant receives professional practitioner training resources including a manual, slideshow and session-by-session guidelines to facilitate parent meetings.
Participants will learn:
- Sorting behaviours: what’s involved and the implications for how parents will respond
- Common mistakes in addressing misbehaviour, particularly the problem with too much talk and too much emotion
- Processes of pattern-establishment and change: how negative reinforcement works, the characteristics of patterns, how to interrupt patterns and extinction bursts
- Using 123 Magic: what it’s used for and what it’s not used for, how it’s done properly, how to implement it at home, how to avoid the two biggest mistakes of parenting
- Developing response flexibility in children: emotion coaching and cognitive strategies teachers can teach children.
Lunch and refreshments are provided.
Active PD hours apply.
