Are you having trouble dealing with certain behaviors of a child in your life? The City of Pocatello Child Care Advisory Committee is offering a bit of help.
Tuesday, March 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Pocatello City Council Chambers, 911 N. 7th Avenue, the group will be hosting a free training for child care providers and parents with Dr. Daniel L. Traughber, PhD. titled “Deconstructing Behavior Problems: Learning to tell the difference between defiance and anxiety driven meltdowns.” Dr. Traughber will be explaining what an anxiety driven meltdown is, the difference between behavior and neurodevelopmental disorders, and the four functions of behavior. Small group discussions will also be held after the Dr. Traughber’s presentation.
“This training will offer tools to help child care providers and parents alike identify the difference between defiance and anxiety driven behaviors in children,” said Jene Purman, Licensing Enforcement Officer. “The Child Care Advisory Committee encourages all child care providers to attend.”
Child care providers who attend the training are eligible to earn two hours of IdahoSTARS credits.
