Have you heard...? "You just need to be TOUGHER or MORE CONSISTENT!" Did you find that approach didn't work, but couldn't come up with a better plan? FINALLY, THERE'S A BETTER PLAN! Featured speaker Alicia Stevenson is a Certified CPS Mentor, via ThinkKids/Massachusetts General Hospital* and the parent of a child with learning disabilities and mental health challenges.
This presentation will show traditional methods of behavioral intervention don't work for so many challenging children and teens, and what does work, from the perspective of a parent who's been there. This revolutionary and innovative model is compassionate, effective, respectful, and is gaining widespread, international attention,
Presented by the Sussex County Mental Health Board and Partners.
