At some point all parents face behavioral challenges with their children. Adopted children have often had unfortunate experiences that may increase misbehavior and make traditional discipline techniques ineffective.
Join Mandy Jones, LCSW, JD, post-adoption and Certified Theraplay® Therapist as she provides an empathetic understanding of why negative behaviors occur and discuss tools, techniques and activities that parents can use to tame temper tantrums, provide alternative discipline, and create positive relationships.
Topics will include:
