In partnership with Woods Mill Pediatrics of Washington University and Be Ready 4 Baby, Leah Frankel has designed this class specifically for individuals preparing for adoption and for those families who recently completed the adoption process. Intended to provide practical tools and information for families, this class will give families what they need to know to help them develop a strong, healthy, parent-child relationship. New parents will leave the class feeling secure in their ability to foster a healthy and secure attachment as they transition into parenthood. Please register once per couple. $10 per person, sign up HERE.

Is It Oppositional Defiant Disorder? Assessment & Tools for Challenging Behavior in Young Children

Spring 2021 (contact HERE for information on past presentations or to schedule a presentation for your organization)
Brown School of Social Work, Washington University in St. Louis

While some challenging behaviors in early childhood are developmentally important and appropriate, other behaviors are cause for concern and require appropriate clinical intervention. How do we differentiate between “appropriate” and “concerning”…and when is it helpful to consider a diagnosis versus just to respond to a behavior?
 
This workshop will provide an overview of the diagnoses most commonly associated with challenging behavior in early childhood and review the diagnostic criteria. Informed with this background, we will explore the intersection of child development and clinical intervention. Through lecture and group activities, participants will gain a toolkit of resources, evidence-based approaches, and best practices for working with young children who exhibit a range of challenging behaviors.

This workshop qualifies for 3 CEUs. General admission is $60.
