The strengths-based skills presented during this session will empower and equip your most rambunctious, challenging, sensitive, and vulnerable children with competence for success.
During this live, interactive event, Dr. Masterson will show you how to meet the unique needs of children with a framework of resilience-promoting, child-centered guidance that will reorient practice and radically change outcomes for children. She will provide support so you can:

- Turn around common behavior challenges with 10 research-based strategies that nurture and empower self-responsibility
- Explore the cooperation boosters of rich language interactions, executive function, self-regulation, and emotion competence
- Learn strategies that empower families as full partners in children’s success
Join us to experience a fresh vision for behavior guidance. Reenergize your focus as you align your practice with research-based skills that work to boost the health and wellbeing of children, families – and you! Discover the strategies you need to maximize your influence in the lives of children and families. Handouts, resources, and book information also will be shared. Teachers, coaches, directors, and early childhood leaders who work with young learners from toddlers to grade 3 are invited to attend.
