Course Summary

The workshop is aimed at parents who have children diagnosed with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) or Conduct Disorder.

The workshops is designed especially for parents trying to manage challenging behaviours in the home.

In this workshop challenging behaviours are considered to arise from a lack of "fit" between the child and the environment and this lack of fit is grounded in deficits in essential skills. This workshop goes beyond the basic behaviour management programmes designed to get children to simply do as their told.

The workshop is conducted usually as 8 sessions on consecutive weeks. Attendance at all sessions is important.
