Lecture and Discussion- Participants are encouraged to make the workshop more relevant to their concerns by asking questions.
Focus is on making an academic but pragmatic distinction between effective management (interventions that prevent from problems arising) and discipline (interventions that address problem solving). By recognizing the underlying emotional and psychological issues that arise in children & adults prior to and in discipline situations, adults can use effective techniques to properly manage potential discipline situations and crises before they erupt and/or as they erupt. Participants will learn how to make accurate diagnoses of themselves as the discipliner, of the child, and of the discipline situation so that they may be able to effectively apply the management/discipline techniques discussed.
