Guiding Children’s Behaviors in Afterschool/School-Age Programs Training

Offered through the SCE Youth Work Learning Center, this course approaches behavior management from a positive, assets-based perspective. Recognizing that with a motivated staff, a basic knowledge base and the willingness to try new things, every school-age program can have an impact on the social and emotional growth of school-age children.

Benefits and Learning Outcomes

  • Explore how your own background, experiences and stress level influence the way you guide and discipline children
  • Understand our goal (teaching self-discipline and self-control)
  • Discuss the advantages of a child-centered vs. adult-controlled environment
  • Reinforce the relationships between growth and development, and learning styles and behavior
