When young children present challenging behaviors, it is easy to become frustrated when interventions fail. This workshop presents an alternative method to assess challenging behaviors in children up to 36 months and more effectively address the challenge. Using video examples, participants will break down the assessment process to include precise observation skills and take a close look at conclusions made from such observations.Participants will use the work of Arnold Sameroff and the Transactional Model of Development to determine whether specific challenging behaviors require remediation, reeducation, or redefinition.
