Building Brave Muscles: The Specific Behavioral Skills that Target Increasing Bravery

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.

Building on the information covered during the Selective Mutism 101 workshop, Elianna Platt, MA, LMSW, clinical social worker in the Selective Mutism Service at the Child Mind Institute, will review the behavioral skills that are crucial for effective treatment. These essential skills allow children to begin practicing tasks that encourage speech and participating in targeted exposures to increase "brave talking." Ms. Platt will provide video examples of real-life implementations and invite the audience to participate in skills practice. Additionally, she will cover the Dos and Don'ts of recognizing and encouraging "brave talking."
