Behavior Compass© Objectives


The primary objective of this program is to provide tools that will help enrich family life by improving communication, increasing positive behaviors, and ultimately enhancing the overall quality of parent-child relationships. Our Behavior Compass© curriculum aims to do this through a research-based parenting model that encourages families to navigate their own solutions with improved confidence for years to come.

Is There A Target Age Range?

While the Behavior Compass© workshop is generally tailored for parents with children ages 3 to 12 years old, much of the information can be applied to behaviors throughout adolescence and adulthood. 

What Is The Course Structure?

The course is typically split into two 2.5-hour sessions.  However, a single day course option is available upon request. 

What Kind Of Information Is Discussed?

The primary  course content is broken into two sections that build into a single comprehensive model.

  • Section 1: Behavior Intervention Using a "Prevention First" Approach 
    • Emphasis is on strategies to increase the behaviors you WANT to see. This process starts by learning to recognize and understand how frustration and stress can impact parenting decisions. Strategies for practicing self-awareness and self-care are presented as guide toward a more calm, prepared and confident approach with your child. This opens the door to greater success using positive reinforcement tools that are intended to encourage more of the behaviors we enjoy seeing.
  • Section 2: Developing Comprehensive Intervention Plans Using the Functional Assessment Model
    • It is important to understand why “one-size-fits-all” approaches to dealing with difficult behaviors are often ineffective. This session provides a model for pinpointing specific behavior patterns in order to effectively guide the change. Discussions include the importance of asking "why does my child continue to behave this way” and “what is it about this behavior that is working for him/her?” By learning to ask and answer these questions, parents are better prepared to develop more effective intervention plans tailored to the child’s specific behaviors and needs. A step by step problem-solving model is provided for parents to practice and begin using regularly at home.
