Creating Harmony in Family Life 6

Happy Family Hugging Each OtherNo Tantrums – No Yelling – No Video Addiction

As parents, we want what is best for our children.  Creating an atmosphere of respect and kindness in the family is not so easy.  The hectic school and work week plus balancing the needs of children and adults require an understanding and support that cannot be gleaned from reading books alone.  Even the most loving, skilled, and informed parent can feel overwhelmed and lost in how to support their child and balance the needs of everyone in the family.  Helath Psychology Sacramento’s Parent Supprt Group is experly guided by Kelly Pemberton*, school psychologist.  She provides the support, information and resources you have been looking for.

Next meeting: Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016 from 3:30 – 5 pm

Theme: Utilizing Behavior Theory for Effective Parenting

Key Concepts and Strategies for this Wednesday’s Meeting:

  • The ABC’s of Behavior Theory (antecedent, behavior, consequence)
  • Behavior is communication
  • Identifying triggers to behavior, preventing behavior by knowing the triggers
  • Detective work – what is the primary function/purpose of the behavior
  • Reinforcing behavior. Consider, are you reinforcing the behavior you want to see more? Or are you actually reinforcing the behavior you are trying to decrease?
  • Behavior mapping. Where could you have taken a different path?

  •  Expected & Unexpected Behaviors

We all love it when a Plan comes together
