This workshop will be offered by Lisa Poelle, author of The Biting Solution: The Expert’s No-Biting Guide for Parents, Caregivers, and Early Childhood Educators. In this course, students will learn how to use a “consultative problem solving approach” to deal more successfully with all types of challenging behaviors, such as biting, hitting, pushing, etc. Through presentations and discussions that include many actual case studies, students will learn how to recognize and avoid common pitfalls to solving behavior problems. They will learn how to make targeted observations, ask themselves the right questions, and gather pertinent data leading to a customized plan of action. They will learn how to prevent problems, teach pro-social skills, involve parents, and intervene more effectively during a conflict. Students will have an opportunity to design solutions to behavior problems pertaining to their own workplace. This workshop offers 1.5 CEUs.
