Managing the Defiant Child

This program was originally developed for parents, but has proven to be equally effective for classroom teachers. Dr. Anthony Scannella, a former principal, teacher and certified medical psychotherapist, provides you with practical strategies to manage defiant children. Understanding a child’s basic psychological needs can often be the key to unlocking the communication barrier. Dr. Scannella offers insights into why children misbehave, establishing rapport, and saying “No”. Unlike other programs that focus on behavioral theory, this program is very “hands on” offering a full menu of practical strategies that work with most defiant children.
