Presenter: Rosemarie Allen, PhD
When children are engaged in persistent behaviors that are difficult to manage, adults frequently experience powerlessness, especially when working with young children they describe as defiant or oppositional. This results in harsh discipline of young children. This workshop discusses the relationship between children’s behavior and adult’s responses. The role of implicit bias on behavioral expectations will be discussed and strategies provided preventing harsh discipline.
