Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training

Friday, September 23, 2016

9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Child Mind Institute

Adults caring for children often have questions about how to set clear expectations and manage behavior effectively. Especially when children exhibit challenging behaviors, adults want to know exactly how to address these situations with strategies that promote positive behavior, good social-emotional development, and increased self-esteem. The Child Mind Institute's B.E.S.T. Program (Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training for parents, nannies, and caregivers) provides just this sort of preparation. Informed by the most up-to-date research, clinicians provide adults with a structured training experience aimed at the teaching and immediate application of practical techniques for effective behavior management.

Selective Mutism 101

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

6:15 PM – 7:30 PM

Child Mind Institute

This workshop is part of the Selective Mutism Parent and Educator Series. Visit Parent and Educator Workshops on Selective Mutism to register for upcoming events and view archived workshops.

As the field of psychology has become more advanced and scientific in its approach, our understanding of selective mutism symptoms and treatment has improved. Rachel Busman, PsyD, director of the Selective Mutism Service at the Child Mind Institute, will lead an in-depth discussion on the diagnosis of selective mutism, debunking the unfortunate myths and misunderstandings that continue to impact children challenged with the disorder. This workshop will provide an overview of our current behavioral understanding of selective mutism and how this guides effective interventions. Finally there will be discussion regarding how a speech and language evaluation contributes to the diagnosis of selective mutism and what speech and language services are available to help.
