Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training

Friday, April 5, 2019

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.

Join the Child Mind Institute at the ADAA Conference

Selective Mutism (SM) is a childhood anxiety disorder that is characterized by a persistent failure to speak in certain social situations, despite an ability to do so in others. The most typical place that a child with SM speaks is at home to family members; usually, the child is the most impaired at school, on playdates and during after-school activities.

This advanced workshop will provide clinicians with behavioral training for the treatment of SM. Techniques to build a foundation for the interventions will be explained, but the main focus of the workshop will be related to exposures for SM. Importantly, this workshop will highlight how to move from individual exposures with the child to more "real life" exposures, such as scaffolding playdates and community-based exposures. The workshop will draw from clinical examples, use videos when appropriate and discuss the important part of empowering parents as agents of change.

Koplewicz and suicide survivor and advocate Kevin Hines in a conversation about why adolescents consider suicide and what we can do to help them.

The discussion will cover the comorbidity of suicide with common mental health disorders, address the outsized role that impulsivity plays in teen suicide and explore Mr. Hines’ personal experience and how this can illuminate the mindset of young people for clinicians.
