AANYC Food for Thought Infant Mental Health Training: "FLIP IT"
Saturday, June 29, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
San Antonio, TX
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
FLIP IT® is a strategy that offers a simple, kind, strength-based, commonsense and effective four step process to address children’s day to day challenging behaviors. The four steps are embodied in the FLIP IT mnemonic which stands for F – Feelings, L – Limits, I – Inquiries, and P – Prompts. FLIP IT is nothing new, but transforms best practice into a strategy that is easy to remember, applicable in a variety of challenging situations and portable.
Children who are frequently “FLIPPED” become emotionally aware problem-solvers who develop healthy coping skills that will last a lifetime.
Space is limited. Please sign up NOW.
This is a non-refundable workshop.
Registration will remain open until the class is filled to maximum capacity (40). You can either choose to register online or at the door.
