The Psychology Behind Challenging Behaviors
Workshop added!          

If you ask the average early childhood professional to name their greatest barrier to classroom management, most would say: challenging behaviors!

We have heard your requests for more workshops addressing this important topic, and we are responding. The Psychology Behind Challenging Behaviors is a unique workshop that blends the worlds of psychology and early childhood to help participants understand why children (and adults) behave the way they do.

This session takes a deep dive into classroom behavior and looks at how the brain develops and influences behavior, how children develop negative core beliefs and the self-protecting behaviors that develop, and typical reasons why children misbehave.

Teachers will walk away with a better understanding of why the children are doing what they are doing as well as insights into their own reactions. Participants will also learn concrete strategies for helping children through challenging behaviors so that teachers feel equipped to handle the children in their classrooms. 

This workshop will be presented on April 5 from 6-9 p.m. by Dr. Jenni Jacobs at our Cincinnati location, 2100 Sherman Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45212. Register today!
