Parent Power: 5 Steps to Improving Your Home

November 1, 2017
7:30 – 8:30 PM EDT

Presenter: Justin Misurell, PhD

Parents often struggle to manage their children’s difficult behaviors. Disobedience, back-talking, temper tantrums, fighting with siblings and refusing to go to school are common problems that can lead to frustration, aggravation and feelings of disempowerment among parents. These behaviors can also cause serious distress in your home and negatively impact your family’s ability to function. Fortunately, decades of research on behavior management has identified a number of core principles and techniques that have proven to be effective in addressing children’s behavioral difficulties. The current workshop synthesizes these strategies into an easy to remember acronym called Parent POWER, consisting of the following strategies: 1: Putting Structures in Place 2: Offering Incentives 3: Working Hard 4: Emotional Regulation and 5: Role-Modeling.
