Course Description:
This seminar is for YOU if you work with young adults, teens or children who:

• Debate and invite power struggles with parents or teachers
• Display hostile, angry, revengeful, exploitative or predatory tendencies
• Use silly immature tactics to gain attention and get noticed
• Engage in property destruction, fire-setting, vandalism or animal cruelty
• Have diagnoses such as ADHD, ODD, Bipolar Disorder, or Conduct Disorder
• Act irresponsible, helpless, negligent or tardy
• Snicker at charts-and-stars and other “behavior modification” attempts

Attend this seminar and learn a wealth of high-impact techniques that cut across diagnostic lines and apply universally, from early childhood to young adult. Using these techniques will enable you to accomplish quickly what can often be missed in months of regular talk therapies, counseling or behavior modification reward systems.

You’ll learn how to stop pre-delinquent clients’ manipulations such as victim playing, power struggling, denial, minimizing, defiance, evasive lying, excuse making, blaming, and justifying. You’ll learn key strategies for “reading” misbehavior to uncover its underlying needs and motivations. You can share these methods with teachers and parents to free them from “ignore-nag-yell-punish” cycles and senseless power struggles. Discover powerful techniques to divert and reduce hostility and revenge in oppositional, predatory, violent adolescents and young adults. You’ll be able to introduce presocial adaptive behaviors that develop conscience and satisfy their unmet needs that trigger misbehavior.

Objectives:
• Use at least 5 clinical interventions to reduce attention-seeking misbehavior in clients.
• Demonstrate at least 4 clinical interviewing strategies to address resistance, reduce defensiveness and build trust with clients.
• Implement at least 5 intervention methods to reduce power-displaying misbehavior in clients.
• Incorporate effective interventions to help clients express anger in a constructive, healthy manner.
• Teach caregivers behavioral strategies to increase compliance and cooperation at home and school.
• Assess the client’s worldview and interpret the meaning behind maladaptive behavior in order to develop an individualized treatment plan.
