Parent and Educator Workshop on Selective Mutism

Selective Mutism

Hear Our Voices

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

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.

For our final workshop in the Selective Mutism (SM) Workshop Series, the Selective Mutism Service at the Child Mind Institute invites individuals who have overcome SM and those still working on "brave talking" for a panel discussion. These brave individuals—from first graders to young adults—serve as incredibly powerful sources of encouragement, hope, and inspiration to parents and professionals who strive to help their own children, students, and patients overcome the disorder. They will talk about their journeys and make themselves available to answer questions.

Behavior Problems

Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training

Friday, June 9, 2017

9 am – 4 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.
