Please Join East Meets West Cultural Dialogue on Dec 10

By Chinese Culture Connection

Please join Rick Irving, LICSW to learn the components of successful behavior management. Rick has extensive experience and training in working with children and families. We will continue to learn to understand children’s perceptions of what we do, and what the purposes of their behaviors are. We will then discuss how to intervene to change difficult or stubborn behavior patterns and encourage positive ones.

Finally, we will cover language and techniques for setting limits and shaping behaviors, techniques to avoid, and specific categories of behavior, including self-control and social skills. Please bring questions, case examples, and frustrations. You will leave with tools and the confidence to try them out.

This event will be held on Thursday, Dec 10 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the Malden Beebe School Auditorium. Simple Chinese food will be served at 5:30 in the cafeteria and the workshop will start promptly at 6:00 PM. Feel free to bring your children. The program is free and childcare is available. For more information or RSVP, please contact the Chinese Culture Connection at 781-321-6316 or [email protected]
