Brief Program Description

Troubled children and youth are often experts at pushing buttons. As educators and support staff, we may sometimes find ourselves taking problems too personally and needlessly escalating conflicts. In this eyeopening workshop with Dr. Parese, we first examine the dynamics of power struggles and then explore five distinct sources of adult anger.

Next, we discuss four self-defeating dynamics with youth and expose specific reasons why some of these patterns may be more difficult to manage than others. Finally, we discuss strategies and insights essential to maintaining a professional perspective in challenging situations.
