Behavior management attempts to guide and motivate individuals to change certain actions. It is important to first identify problem behaviors and where they occur, and then work to remedy and replace negative behaviors with positive ones.
Behavioral management is a continual process requiring education, effort, and commitment.
We can help you devise behavior management routines, in a supportive environment, to reinforce positive behavior and discourage inappropriate action.
Families can also engage in behavioral management. Research suggests that within families, patterns of behavior exist that shape interaction style: flexible, rigid, laissez-faire, and chaotic. Families, who are able to adapt behavior style to different situations faced, succeed in maintaining appropriate and healthy patterns of behavior and relationships.
We can help you and your family understand current patterns of behavior that may or may not be productive, in an effort to develop healthy patterns of behavior that support optimal family functioning.
