CE Event: Practical Parenting Toolbox

Practical Parenting Toolbox instructed by Brett Novick, MS, LMFT, CSSW, MA

The purpose of this webinar is to teach professionals an overview of practical, "ready to use" skills and parenting techniques. The overarching goal of the webinar is to help professionals hone techniques that are necessary for the ever-changing and dynamic world that is the hallmark of modern parenting. The objectives include: developing an understanding of what a child is attempting to communicate, versus what they say, understanding the varied skills youth utilize to get what they want, and an exploration of one's idiosyncratic parenting/personality style(s). The webinar will also help the professional to gain a better understanding of punishment versus discipline and how to teach logical and natural consequences as a manner of parental philosophy. Finally, we will look at why behavioral contracts and reward systems succeed or fail and review relevant topic areas such as sibling rivalry and peer pressure.
