Behavior Management

Parents sometimes just don’t know what to do when their child is angry, aggressive, oppositional or sad. These are the difficult behaviors that challenge people’s parenting skills.

For our latest on-demand video, Thomas Matthews, MD, Clarity CGC outpatient medical director, helps parents and mental health professionals better understand what’s behind those difficult behaviors. This 3-part series covers the following:

  • Why bad behavior?
  • The role of parent/child temperament
  • Causes and treatment for common difficult behaviors
  • Tips for behavior management
  • Disaster counseling tips for handling a crisis situation

This recording is from a community presentation Clarity Child Guidance Center hosted on August 20, 2010.
