Full Course Description


Introduction Module: Beyond Behaviors

In Beyond Behaviors, internationally-known pediatric psychologist Dr. Mona Delahooke challenged mainstream ideas about addressing childhood behavioral problems based on new insights from brain science.

Now, hear Dr. Delahooke in this exclusive companion course to the award-winning book as she unpacks and expands on how to apply the principles of the book to real-life therapy. Designed for psychologists, behavioral therapists, teachers, and anyone responsible for helping kids with challenging behaviors, she guides you, step-by-step, through her behavioral models of therapy based on an understanding of each child’s unique nervous system.

By applying insights from brain science, polyvagal theory, and social and emotional development theory, Dr. Delahooke shows how the real problems are beyond and beneath behaviors – and by using her system and principles, you can not only address behaviors but the underlying drivers of those behaviors.

Featuring impactful worksheets and charts, this accessible and practical course offers professionals, educators, and parents tools and techniques to reduce behavioral challenges and promote psychological resilience and satisfying, secure relationships, and better therapy outcomes with kids.
