Description:
Treating the challenging child today requires a new approach to behavior guidance. Adverse techniques are no longer acceptable. Permissive parenting, along with parents who defend, deny or attempt to direct treatment, bring a new dimension to treatment capabilities. Developmental stages, the multiple factors that influence a child’s behavior, and recommendations for intervention will be discussed. Dr. Soxman will review methods to engage and involve parents and ultimately bring them to "our side." Potential problems will be identified with specific recommendations that can result in more successful and less stressful visits for all.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • describe developmental stages for age-appropriate expectations for behavior.
  • learn the various circumstances and influences that affect a child’s behavior.
  • offer suggestions for behavior guidance.
  • provide information regarding limitations due to behavior and treatment objectives.           
  • determine the pros and cons of parental presence for treatment.
