Webinar May 18: “I Don’t Believe You Did That!” Understanding Yourself and the Child With Challenging Behavior

May 3, 2017

Please join the Bright Spaces program at 2 pm EDT on May 18  for a presentation by Barbara Kaiser, co-author of Challenging Behavior in Young Children: Understanding, Preventing and Responding Effectively.

If you’re like most of us, you feel frustrated and defeated when confronted with a child with challenging behaviors. This webinar begins by understanding yourself because whether you’re aware of it or not, everything about how you approach and respond to children filters through the prism of your own family background, education, temperament, beliefs, values, emotions, and culture. Understanding yourself is the first step. All parents, educators, and providers need to understand why some children depend upon challenging behavior to meet their needs. What are the risk factors? How does knowing the risk factors that some children face help you to support them when they engage in challenging behavior that puts them as well as their peers at risk?

We hope you can join us for this interesting topic that we can all relate to.
