About this Webinar

December 15th, 2022 @ 1 pm EST 

In this webinar, we will discuss how parents can build appropriate behaviors in their children and at the same time, self-esteem as described in Dr. Schlinger’s recent book, How to Build Good Behavior and Self-Esteem in Children. We will describe some of the ways in which parents and other caregivers can begin to think differently about interacting with children and the role they can and do play in their child’s behavior. 

The webinar will also address how ABA practitioners can incorporate the book as part of staff training. The emphasis is on building appropriate behaviors and positive self-esteem and preventing maladaptive behaviors and negative self-esteem.

Purchase your copy of How to Build Good Behavior and Self-Esteem in Children.

By participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to answer the following questions:

  1. What does it mean to say that parents are behavioral engineers?
  2. What are five troublesome patterns (or problems) between parents and their children?
  3. What is the naive philosophy that we all are share about where behavior comes from and what does it mean to say that “the child is always right”?
  4. What is the root of discipline and why is it consistent with a behavior-analytic approach to building good behavior and self-esteem?
  5. What do we mean when we talk about “self-esteem,” and how can a behavioral approach to parenting affect a child’s (and a parent’s) self-esteem?
  6. How can parents prevent problem behavior while building appropriate behavior?
