Parent Empowerment: Counseling Parents in
Positive Child-Rearing Practices
Health professionals and educators now, more than
ever, face the uphill battle of working with disruptive children and adolescents
from all types of backgrounds. Youth who argue at school or home or act out
violently are a constant challenge for untrained, tired and busy parents.
Managing at-risk youngsters is no longer the exclusive chore of parents.
Educators and mental health professionals are being called upon to provide a
framework for ending unmanageable problems and restoring respect for authority
figures and self-control in these children. As the rate of violent crimes
committed by juveniles increases, direct-care professionals have become the
first line of offense in reversing bad behavior and halting children's
progression into the juvenile corrections system.
This comprehensive, hands-on workshop teaches scientifically proven methods that
can be easily implemented to eliminate common maladaptive behaviors in the home
and educational environments. It will demonstrate how to empower parents and
other authority figures with functional and reliable steps for behavior
management through reinforcement methods. Based on Dr. Ruben's best-selling
books, Bratbusters: Say Goodbye to Tantrums and Disobedience and Behavioral
Management in the Public Schools, this seminar provides techniques to address
behaviors such as tantrums, noncompliance, oppositional defiance, lying, sibling
fighting, and insensitivity. Participants will return to their jobs with an
arsenal of effective behavior changing methods to help rescue children and their
parents from these feelings of helplessness.
