When children struggle with how to express their emotions, they may resort to presenting some difficult, unmanageable, or negative behaviors. Those behaviors, and the anger behind them, can take a toll on the child as well as everyone around him, and may even result in the erosion of family relationships.
In this training, participants will explore possible motives for a child’s difficult behaviors and learn about some steps parents can take to teach their children how to express feelings safely, develop healthy coping skills, and enhance positive communication. The workshop leader will offer effective problem solving tools that work for the whole family.
