Behavioral Parent Training Workshop for Parents of Kids Ages 0-6 & 7-12 presented by Dr. Joshua Rosenthal on the UWS on 9/25/16. There were nearly 75 parents in attendance learning new skills and practicing role plays!
When children don’t listen, how do you stay calm and not lose your temper? How do you know which strategies to use for each situation? Based on years of clinical experience and the latest research, Dr. Rosenthal teaches parents specific and concrete skills and scripts that really work. Parents will learn how to reduce conflict and prevent typical child behaviors from becoming bigger problems. Warning! This is not a boring, passive lecture. This workshop will be fun and engaging and may cause serious improvements in your parenting skills!
