Self-Regulation Interventions for Children & Adolescents: Reduce Frustration, Emotional Outbursts & Oppositional Behaviors

This recording will help you to better intervene with the challenging child – the one who won’t sit still; doesn’t follow directions; often throws tantrums; or has difficulty waiting for their turn. They react impulsively and have difficulty expressing what they need or what is frustrating them. We know this child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their behavior doesn’t reflect these positive qualities. These are the children who confuse and frustrate parents and who overwhelm teachers and peers. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are dysregulated and unable to succeed socially and academically.

Intervene with proven emotional, behavioral and processing strategies that lead to succeed at home, school and with peers!

  • Recognize the signs of underlying processing deficits that lead to dysregulation
  • Strategies to improve self-control, social success, emotional regulation and task completion
  • Strategies to reduce frequency and duration of behavioral and emotional outbursts
  • Problem-solving strategies to create positive structure and expectations, positive coping and self-regulation
  • Brain training exercises that will increase self-regulation

LAURA EHLERT, PSY.D.

Laura Ehlert, Psy.D., is a child clinical psychologist who has worked with children and adolescents with severe emotional/behavioral issues for over 30 years. She maintains a private practice in Burnsville, Minnesota where she specializes in working with clients who struggle with information, executive functioning and sensory processing deficits, and their associated emotional, behavioral and mental health issues. Dr. Ehlert has worked with thousands of youth in a variety of settings including hospitals, residential treatment centers, partial hospital programs, school day treatment and outpatient mental health settings. She holds a doctorate degree in clinical psychology where her training focuses on developmental issues of childhood, and child psychopathology issues.

Professionals who have worked with Dr. Ehlert in the past have often commented that the perspectives and interventions she offers succeeded where others have failed. All behavior has function and is goal driven. Therefore, our understanding from the child’s perspective and being able to collaborate with the child to better know what information they do or don’t have in any difficult situation, is vital. If you want to resolve the problem that is creating the difficult behavior, you must first understand what is behind that behavior.
