Parent Management Training:
"Parenting is the easiest thing in the world to have an opinion about, but hardest thing in the world to do" - Matt Walsh
Parent Management training is scientific and evidence based therapeutic module to coach parents to manage their child's behavioral problems in the home and at school. Parents are taught new ways to understand their child's behavior and to practice skills and techniques for effectively handling their child's problematic behaviors. Parents are taught behavioural techniques and are helped to identify and strengthen the positive behaviour of their children. In conditions like ADHD and Autism, parent management training is quite beneficial in developing skills in children exhibiting behaviour such as aggression, hyperactivity, temper tantrums, and difficulty following directions.
With the parent management training, parents learn evidence based techniques to improve the relationship with the child, such as:
- * Increasing effective commands
- * Responding to negative behaviors in a calm and consistent manner
- * Reducing the parent child conflict.
- * Choosing to ignore minor misbehaviours
- * Delivering non-punishing consequences for behaviors that cannot be ignored
Parent management training can help parents to "get back on track" with a child who is not responding well to the parenting methods currently being used in the family and decrease fighting and tension to improve the overall quality of life in the home.
