It has been a powerful tool for families, educators and other adults in a child’s life to find ways of successfully building the inherent greatness in children.
This presentation will focus on the 3 Stands, saying yes to energizing the positive, refusing to energize the negative and maintaining absolute clarity around rules and un-energized consequences.
This approach was developed by Howard Glasser for working with the most difficult children and has a proven impact on every child including children who have challenges with behaviors, social interactions and academics. The approach has helped children diagnosed with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder and other behavioral, emotional and anxiety challenges, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger Syndrome.
