The seminar is about explosive, inflexible and easily frustrated children. The children often exhibit non compliance, volatility and mood instability that have the potential to make life extraordinarily challenging and frustrating for themselves, their parents, siblings, teachers and others who interact with them.
The seminar aims to provide a more up-to-date conceptualization of these behaviors, and to describe a new, practical, comprehensive approach aimed at decreasing adversarial interactions between explosive children and the adults who strive to ensure their well-being at home and school; reducing family hostility; and improving their capacities for flexibility, frustration tolerance, communication, problem solving, conflict resolution and self-regulation.
