Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training

Friday, April 5, 2019

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.
