Talks on Tuesdays: Preventing Challenging Behavior in the Home Setting


This training will focus on ways to prevent challenging behavior in the home setting. We will define challenging behavior and social-emotional competence, and we will discuss why young children demonstrate challenging behaviors. Four parenting practices for preventing challenging behaviors will be outlined, and resources will be shared regarding what families and providers can do when challenging behaviors begin or when they continue to occur.

Meet the Presenter: Jackie is a Senior Instructor at the University of Colorado Denver. In this role, she acts as project coordinator for the randomized controlled trial of Prevent Teach Reinforce for Young Children (PTR-YC) at the Positive Early Learning Experiences (PELE) Center, coordinates the online ABA Certificate Program, and teaches in the early childhood special education master's program.

She has co-authored articles and book chapters and conducted dozens of training sessions and workshops on positive behavior support. Prior to working at the University of Colorado Denver, Jackie was primarily involved with supporting families of young children with disabilities. Jackie's professional and research interests include evidence-based interventions for reducing the challenging behaviors and improving the social emotional competence of young children in home settings and in early education and care classrooms.


Registration slots for our ToTs frequently fill quickly HOWEVER far fewer people join the actual webinar. We'd like to request that you register only if you plan to attend so that all who are interested are able to login. Additionally, if you participate as a group, each individual does not need to register. One person can register for the group and can then share the access to the survey allowing each individual to obtain a certificate of participation. As a reminder, all ToTs are archived for your ease of access at times convenient to you. Thank you in advance for helping.
