Kim's session on moving from Power & Control to Collaboration and Problem Solving with children offers parents a researched-based approach to parenting that moves away from traditional reward and punishment methods. Through the session, parents will learn that they are not to blame for their child's behaviour and that there are often several obstacles in the way, including their child's underdeveloped cognitive skills, emotional regulation, problem-solving abilities, and impulse control. Instead of resorting to threats, bribes, and consequences, parents will learn how to identify the factors that hinder their child's cooperation in day-to-day routines. Kim is an expert in the Collaborative and Proactive Problem Solving Approach, developed by Dr. Ross Greene, and the author of The Explosive Child, among many other books. Parents will gain valuable insights into ways to collaborate and solve problems with their children, improving their relationship and fostering positive growth and development.
Details: – An evidence-based model of care that helps parents/caregivers focus on identifying the problems that are causing concerning or challenging behaviours in kids and solving those problems collaboratively and proactively.
