Self-Regulation Interventions for Children & Adolescents: Reduce Frustration, Emotional Outbursts & Oppositional Behaviors – Live Webcast
December 9, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm MST
This seminar will help you to better intervene with the challenging child—the one who won’t sit still; doesn’t follow directions; often throws tantrums; or has difficulty waiting for their turn. They may “hit first and ask questions later”. They react impulsively and have difficulty expressing what they need or what is frustrating them. We know this child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their behavior doesn’t reflect these positive qualities. These are the children who confuse and frustrate parents and who overwhelm teachers and peers. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are unable to succeed in school, with peers and at home.
Join clinical psychologist Dr. Ehlert and learn to effectively intervene with the emotional and behavioral dysregulation of children with High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Sensory Processing Disorders. Through hands-on activities and dynamic discussion, you will learn techniques, behavioral strategies, problem-solving strategies and brain training exercises to:
- Address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that trigger them
- Increase their self-control, social success, emotional control and task completion
- Teach flexibility, tolerance, thinking it through and decision-making
- Reduce the frequency and duration of their tantrums and emotional outbursts
Walk away with proven emotional, behavioral and processing strategies that lead to social and academic success!
