Understanding and Responding to Challenging Behaviors – Online Series

up to 14 PD hours English Family Child Care Administrators and Educators, Preschool and Pre-K Educators

This series will focus on defining challenging behavior, understanding why children exhibit this type of behavior and identifying appropriate interventions that help children become successful members of the classroom community. We will also discuss implicit bias, what it is, and how it impacts our expectations and interactions with children.

Participants who complete the series will:

  • be able to define behavior and identify what makes it “challenging”
  • learn the main reasons children use challenging behavior
  • learn effective intervention strategies and why, how and when to apply them
  • build their capacity to create and implement individual behavior plans

Please Note: Priority registration for this series will be given to participants who have successfully completed the Supporting Social and Emotional Development: The Preschool Years series offered by the Center for Early Learning Professionals, have completed coursework or professional development about the foundations of social and emotional development, or have engaged with SUCCESS, the state’s Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation program.

Participants can earn up to 14 PD hours by attending four facilitated online sessions and completing four online assignments.

Please Note: This series has been approved by RIDE to serve as a RIELDS Next Steps class.
