Parenting Toolkit Series

The Parenting Toolkit Series (formerly known as the Behavioral Management Series) is an eight-week interactive workshop with Dr. Clare Cosentino, Director of Psychological Services, and Rebecca Jurow, Director of Early Childhood, for parents of children aged three to ten.

In the fall, parents are encouraged to join us on Mondays from 8:30 to 9:30 am, as we explore valuable tools and techniques to foster positive behavior in children at home. Not only does this include working towards managing difficult behaviors, but also finding ways to bring out the best in your child. Many parents recognize that their children thrive on consistency and clear limits, but many don’t know where to start. This series is based on the methods of Dr. Alan Kazdin from the Yale Parenting Center. It will teach specific skills to enable parents to have a broader toolkit to manage challenging behaviors in their children.
