Has a child’s angry or aggressive behavior ever challenged your progress in achieving your teaching goals? Have you wished you could help a child who has trouble getting along with others or making friends? Do you wish you had a better way to understand why a child exhibits challenging behavior and design a solution to support them toward positive behavior? Using the Pyramid Model of SEFEL (Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning), gain strategies for understanding, addressing and preventing challenging behavior in children ages 3-5, and practice positive ways to support children with challenging behaviors toward social competence and success.
