Managing Challenging Behavior: The Power of Positive Relationships

Children and Youth Partnership, Managing Challenging Behavior: The Power of Positive Relationships
Event Description: 

The Pyramid Model developed by the Center on Social-Emotional Foundations of Early Learning (CSEFEL) provides a framework for preschool teachers to support the social-emotional development of young children. In this module, we'll explore attitudes about challenging behaviors and the range of factors that influence a child's behavior, define the relationship between social emotional development and children's behavior, and learn a framework to enhance social emotional competence and reduce challenging behaviors, and focus on positive relationships as the crucial foundation of a child's ability to learn.
