To successfully respond to life’s everyday social interactions, children need to be able to regulate their emotions. In this workshop, specific behavior management techniques that focus on prevention, problem solving, and defusing emotionally charged situations will be introduced. Easy to implement, evidenced-based methods will be discussed and practiced. Participants will learn how to incorporate a categorization system that uses visuals as supplementary cues and prompts to increase self-regulation. Each participant will receive a set of visuals to carry over strategies learned during the workshop.
Contact hours are awarded free of charge. CEUs (.6) are available by contacting Deborah Rooks-Ellis at MAIER (firstname.lastname@example.org). A two week notice and $20 processing fee is required for CEUs.
