When Love Doesn't Conquer All: Interventions for Disruptive Behavior Disorders (6 CEs)


James Kling


Clients with disruptive behavior disorders are frequently brought to therapy by parents who are desperate for relief from their child's rude and disrespectful responses, however, typically children are not motivated to make changes to their own behavior or thinking.  This creates less than ideal circumstances for traditional therapeutic approaches.  

Research supports (Kaminski et al., 2008) that disruptive behavioral disorders are responsive to behavioral parent training that focuses on teaching parents skills to effectively address children's behaviors and builds positive parent-child relationships. Using this type of approach allows for effective behavioral change as parents are motivated for change even if their child is not.

This interactive training will provide effective, concrete techniques for professionals working with children and adolescents that exhibit moderate to severe disruptive behavioral problems.  This training will contain practical applications of techniques that professionals can use for children/adolescents to help them regain control over their environment.  The participants will have an understanding how parents with children/adolescents that have behavior problems are living within domestically violent homes (children abusing family). 

Attendees will learn applications of techniques that can be used to create environments of mutual respect and cooperation with effective rules, responsibilities, and consequences.  Attendees will learn how to: professionalize disruptive behaviors, implement practical techniques, understand effective consequences, and assist families in managing moderate to severe disruptive behaviors.
