Our Lady of Peace to Host Free Seminar Managing Difficult Childhood Behaviors
Louisville, Ky. (October 1, 2014) — The Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host a seminar entitled, “Managing Difficult Behaviors at Home and at School,” on Tuesday, October 21 at 6 p.m. at Roosevelt-Perry Elementary School, located at 1615 W. Broadway in Louisville.
This free workshop will teach parents, teachers and caregivers strategies to avoid incidents of challenging behaviors in home and school settings. Possible motives will be examined to assist caregivers in determining the most effective interventions. Preventative guidelines for arranging the home and school environments, setting expectations and encouraging positive behaviors will also be discussed. The seminar will be led by Kim Dwyer-Moore, a board certified behavior analyst.
“Many difficult behaviors in children and adolescents can be managed if they are understood,” said Dwyer-Moore. “Through this seminar, we hope to give parents the tools to identify the underlying causes to prevent poor behavior in the future.”
This seminar is part of Peace for Parents, an ongoing initiative that provides 60-90 minute seminars throughout the year on various topics.
