Struggling for Power
Presenter: Jeanine Fitzgerald.
As children explore the world around them, nearly all will occasionally test boundaries and challenge authority because all children have a need for power. While most become more cooperative by age 3, some continually defy any attempt to discipline them and seemingly reject authority all together. This session provides insight into getting children to listen and respect authority figures in their lives, as well as provides effective ways to calm the storm of anger.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, each participant will be
1. Identify the influences upon power-based and anger-based patterns of behavior.
2. Design strategies that effectively address the five major influences identified above.
3. Design strategies that effectively prevent and de-escalate behavioral crises.
