This webinar will explore techniques to support children who engage in challenging behaviours that act as barriers to success in treatment and in daily life. Mental health professionals will be given the foundation to apply behavioural principals, helping clients and their families move from talk to action and manage behaviours that interfere with meeting their goals. Practical strategies to approach non-compliance, tantrums and aggression, maximize parent involvement and facilitate intrinsic motivation will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

-Acquire practical strategies to help clients use what they learn in therapy in their daily lives.
-Describe the differences between learning language-based rules and acquiring real-life skills.
-Understand applications for functional behaviour assessment to treating behaviours that interfere with positive outcomes.
-Be able to facilitate the use of external rewards in a way that is sustainable and supports the development of intrinsic motivation.
-Acquire practical strategies to engage and accommodate children with learning differences such as ADHD, LD and ASD during therapy sessions.
