Behavioral Parent Training (BPT) is based on the assumption that parenting is one of the most difficult endeavors there is but one for which little training is ever provided. Combining this gap with the needs of children with challenges creates a situation where parents and children can bring out the worst in each other.
BPT addresses this problem by calling on over thirty years of behavioral research to provide parents with an approach that aims to assist in learning how to more effectively manage their child’s behavior so that problem behaviors are reduced and replaced with more socially appropriate actions.
This is accomplished through the development of Home Behavior Change Projects (HBCP) which involves pinpointing a problem behavior, developing a precise definition, implementing a measurement system so as to identify the causes of the problem, and then to apply a systematic behavior intervention plan.
We provide BPT for parents on an individual basis or a group format.
