Personality and Temperament: Connecting with Young Clients

Adina Soclof, MS, CCC-SLP; Leo Christie, PhD, LMFT

Course Abstract

Personality and Temperament: Connecting with Young Clients is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that demonstrates how differences in personality and temperament impact how children behave, and how adults communicate and connect with them.

Understanding differences in temperament and personality among adults and children will ultimately assist us in developing better relationships with our clients and enhancing therapy interventions, plans, and goals. Within the context of each type, this course will describe motivators that are type-specific, behavioral “triggers,” strategies and techniques for engaging children’s cooperation, and ways to free children from negative roles.

We will also discuss ways for clinicians to help parents understand their own personality traits and behavioral tendencies in their children so that they can learn to be more effective behavior managers. Many of the same observations and interventions can be applied to children who are experiencing learning differences or developmental challenges.

Course #31-10 | 2018 | 54 pages | 20 posttest questions
