WTF Parenting Workshops: What’s The Function?
For individuals who are interested in learning in a group format, group workshops are available. WTF Parenting Workshops will cover an overview of behavioral science without application to a family’s specific situation. Connecting with other parents experiencing similar behavioral challenges with their child provides powerful learning opportunities. Topics to be addressed will include:
Understanding how to collect data to identify and define precisely what behaviors are most disruptive to your family
Determining the function of your child’s behavior and the variables that may be maintaining it
Implementing research-based strategies and techniques to create behavior change
The virtual sessions are designed to make WTF Workshops manageable for busy families. Should you be unable to attend a session, videos will be made available to you to watch. Collaboration with other parents is important for many families-the sense that another parent “gets it” can be very beneficial. We will work together to create a roadmap for change.
Staff Development/Educator Trainings
Teachers and school support staff are frequently called upon to manage challenging behavior in schools. Precision Parenting offers in-school trainings for staff to:
Develop and strengthen school-wide behavior protocols
Teach behavior shaping techniques essential for challenging students
Trouble-shoot specific cases causing disruption in the school setting
Past staff development participants have reported a more cohesive school-wide behavioral philosophy, a stronger capacity for understanding the function of their students’ behavior as well as a more robust toolkit for handling these behaviors in the classroom.
