Bedtime resistance in young children is disruptive to many aspects of family functioning. Parent attempts to stop bedtime resistance can inadvertently lead to a worsening of bedtime behavior. Several evidence-based approaches have been shown to be highly effective at reducing bedtime resistance and its associated negative ripple effects on family functioning. This presentation will teach participants several specific approaches to reduce bedtime resistance in preschool and elementary school age children. Participants with basic training in behavioral approaches for behavior problems in children will be able to institute these interventions immediately upon completion of this 2-hour program. There is no known commercial support nor conflict of interest for this program.
