Maltby Centre is now offering a series of online workshops for parents and caregivers! These workshops are designed to help parents understand concepts related to Applied Behaviour Analysis, access resources and increase overall parent capacity. This online workshop is for parents living in Ontario with a valid OAP registration number.
Managing challenging behaviour can be stressful for parents and families. It can also be a source of frustration if you are not sure how to manage the issues you are facing. This presentation is about an hour in length and is designed to help parents create strategies to reduce challenging behaviours by helping you understand why the behaviour is occurring in the first place and what strategies you can put into place to reduce the problem behaviour in the future. As part of Foundational Family Services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a Family Support Coordinator following this presentation to help you apply the content of this workshop to your specific family situation.
As a result of participating in this workshop, you will be able to:
1. Gain insight into what problem behaviour is
2. Understand the four functions of behaviour
3. Develop an awareness of strategies related to each function of behaviour
4. Learn how motivation and reinforcement impact behaviour
