ESFT Stage III: Strengthening Parental Executive Skills with Children

November 9 @ 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm


There are three requirements for effective parenting executive skills: 1) parents must be able to hold onto them-selves emotionally when a child reacts to discipline; 2) parents must be thoughtful (rather than emotion-al) when implementing consequences for misbehavior; 3) parents must evolve discipline structures based on the child’s developmental needs. This workshop provides therapists with an understanding of parent-ing styles and a summary of techniques for creating effective consequences for three age groups: children ages 2 to 5, ages 6 to 8, and ages 9-11. Ross Greene’s Collaborative Problem-Solving Approach is pre-sented as a way to strengthen parental executive skills.


1) describe four parenting styles;

2) identify two developmentally-based discipline practices;

3) describe the Collaborative Problem-Solving Approach.
