MANAGING UNMANAGEABLE BEHAVIORS


AHRC New York City’s Family Education Series

Strategies and techniques for parents of children
and adults with developmental disabilities that
can be used anywhere

DESCRIPTION: Managing challenging behaviors can be one of the most
stressful aspects of parenting. This workshop will focus on
providing families with practical strategies they can use at home
to help decrease unwanted behaviors. Preventative, alternative
skill-building reinforcement and desensitization strategies will
all be addressed. Research has supported the use of these
approaches for a wide range of challenging behaviors in both
children and adults. Parents, guardians and professionals will
leave with a greater understanding of why challenging
behaviors may occur and how families can successfully
intervene at home.
