The Kazdin Method® of Parenting
Praise is one of the strongest ways to influence your child’s actions
Parenting based on research
Parenting didn’t always come with instructions, but now it does.
Parenting can be challenging. There is so much advice, so many opinions, and, like dieting, fads that momentarily inspire or sound reasonable but are not very effective. Fortunately, techniques have been developed and studied in research that can make parenting much easier. The techniques are useful tools to use as needed for handling problems and building the habits one would like to see. Dr. Alan E. Kazdin has studied the techniques for three decades and has brought the many techniques together to help parents. The Kazdin Method® has helped thousands of families learn effective parenting strategies. These techniques cannot only change parenting behavior but also can reduce stress in the home often made a little worse by reminders, nagging, noncompliance, and routine behaviors that often occur in family life.
Parenting techniques that actually work!
“Our daughter has become a delightful young lady; we enjoy her so much now! The change in her is dramatic, she and the other children are so much happier, get along way better, and we can’t thank you enough!”
“My daughter always struggled with peer groups. My therapist taught me how I can help her in a systematic way so that she could do it…so that she could succeed.”
“Who would have thought you can practice to do a certain behavior??? We practiced going to bed on time and we used lots of praise when she pretended!! It actually helped!”
“We have been through years of therapy with our son. Nothing has worked until we finally began the Yale Parenting Center. Life is happier now, more enjoyable!”
