Addressing Challenging Behaviors in Young Children

Course objectives include: identifying the causes of challenging behaviors, facilitating positive interventions, creating “teachable moments”, helping with peer interaction and finding opportunities for success. Most importantly, participants will learn what not to do in response to difficult behaviors. This training is suitable for parents and professionals alike!
