Meltdowns Helping Infants, Children and Adolescents Overcome Behavior Problems, Aggression and Tantrums (7 hrs.)

Taught by Stanley Greenspan, M.D.

This workshop presents basic principles for helping children with special needs (including autistic spectrum disorders) overcome meltdowns and ‘problem behaviors.’ Using audio lectures and power point, Dr. Greenspan presents a number of cases to illustrate methods and principles for handling tantrums and aggression in age groups ranging from infants to adolescents. This workshop is especially helpful for parents to address their child’s behaviors effectively and for professionals to encourage children’s calm actions, self-regulation, and creativity.
