Foundations for Promoting Positive Behavior in Early Childhood Settings

Challenging behavior can be a result of a need for social and emotional skill development. Using the Pyramid Model, participants will explore the importance of establishing and maintaining positive relationships and designing an environment and activities that promote social and emotional skill development. During this training, participants will learn and practice techniques that promote positive behavior and prevent challenging behavior. Resources adapted from The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) will be shared with participants for use supporting children’s social and emotional development.
