Decoding Your Child's Behavior

Estimated: 1 1/2 Hours

At some point all parents face behavioral challenges with their children. Adopted children have often had unfortunate experiences that may increase misbehavior and make traditional discipline techniques ineffective. Join Phyllis Booth, Founder of Theraplay®, and Mandy Jones, LCSW, JD, certified Theraplay® therapist at the Center for Lifelong Adoption Support, as they provide an empathetic understanding of why negative behaviors occur and discuss tools, techniques and activities that parents can use to tame temper tantrums and create positive relationships.

Topics will include:

1. Differences adopted children face in childhood and how that affects behavior

2. Behavioral and self-regulation issues both at home and in school

3. What parents can do to curb negative behaviors

4. How parents can create happy, connected family relationships
