Description

Anyone working with kids knows that getting parents to effectively respond to the child’s problematic behavior is paramount to restoring relationships, decreasing everyone’s frustration, meeting treatment goals, and improving the family’s daily life.

But unless and until you can teach parents the HOW and WHEN of effective behavior management in a way that’s accessible and realistic, the chances of seeing improvement in any of these areas are extremely low.

Join Dr. Larry Waldman, psychologist and parenting expert, as he walks you through his highly successful, session-by-session framework using proven applied behavioral psychology techniques designed to teach parents how to:

  • End tantrums, power struggles and defiance with realistic, logical interventions that work
  • Recognize how their reaction to challenging behavior only exacerbates the problem
  • Set boundaries and follow through on consequences with confidence and consistency
  • Understand the dynamic of the “negative attention cycle” – and how to stop it!
  • And more!
