PWS Residential Staff Training Focus Session #3
August 23 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Focus Session #3: Strategies to Improve Cooperation.
This course will provide an overview of the ubiquitous nature of anxiety in PWS and provide specific strategies that help reduce this anxiety and therefore reduce maladaptive, unwanted behaviors. Specifically, this course will clarify that punishment and consequences are not effective with residents with PWS and in fact can increase maladaptive behaviors. We will focus on strategies to increase cooperation using strategies including Paint the Picture, Fixing a Past Goof, how to manage PWS’s impulsivity, attentional deficits, hyperfocus, motivational issues, and how to use PWS’s natural egocentrism to increase cooperation.
