Effective use of Time-Out
During my years of practice, I frequently meet parents or teachers who say "I tried time-out but it doesn't work on my kid." This workshop will help parents and professionals learn how to use time-out (and it's important counterpart Time-IN). Over the past 20 years the use of time-out and reward systems expanded from psychologists using well-practiced guidelines to parents, teachers and others, who have not benefited from formal instruction in the methodology. Although the professional literature \ continues to associate time-out with the behavioral concept of unavailability of rewards, the popular press has been quick and persistent in making up rules for the use of time-out that are not evidence based and, in fact, seem to have no factual basis whatsoever!
