Winning Cooperation from Your Child
provides parents and therapists with a comprehensive, home-based behavioral recovery program for oppositional, defiant, and aggressive children. In response to the national epidemic of defiant and aggressive behavior, Kenneth Wenning offers a range of specific techniques to promote cooperative behavior in children. This unique book can be used either as a self-help resource for parents or to support a collaboration between a parent and a therapist toward a common goal—a child's rapid behavioral recovery. These methods will enable parents to help defiant children develop "psychological armor" and behavioral and emotional control when provoked, teased, or frustrated as well as prevent parents from overreacting or underreacting to the child's disobedience. The aim is to nurture in the child the capacity for accurate self-reflection, a prerequisite for taking responsibility for his or her own actions.
