Positive Guidance: Tools for Challenging Behavior

Presenter: Amanda Morgan

 

Challenging behaviors can quickly derail your plans. But how we respond creates a powerful lesson in itself. In fact, teaching children to be socially and emotionally healthy and competent may be one of the most important lessons we weave into each day.

In this session, participants will learn how to proactively teach skills that prevent many behavior problems, while also getting tools that will help respond to the remaining challenges in healthy, appropriate, and effective ways. In addition, participants will learn to use intentional interactions to build both skills and relationships to create a more positive class atmosphere and support healthy child development.
