Do you need help managing behavioral issues across all of your programs including summer camp and before & afterschool? Does your staff struggle to manage and accommodate? Join us for a straightforward, no-nonsense session on effective behavior management techniques for working with children. This session will provide takeaways to equip your staff with the practical skills and strategies in four key areas: building relationships, language & communication, behavior techniques, and group management. While we'll touch on the importance of these skills, our main goal is to apply them immediately. By using these strategies to train your staff and ensuring that the majority of your team consistently implements these strategies, you'll notice positive results from day one this summer!
