Great Behavior Breakdown

Love always triumphs over fear.  Just like darkness cannot co-exist with light, fear cannot persists in the presence of love.  Severe behavior in children is the result of fear.  Children are completely overstimulated by the images, challenges, and stressful situations that they encounter on a daily basis.  Children need their parents more than ever yet parents are working harder to provide for basic material needs.  Our society is becoming more and more stressed out and children are the least equipped individuals to manage their fears without the direct assistance of their parents.  The good news is that there are specific and concrete things parents can do to help their children cope which also decreases unwanted, negative behavior.  A parent and professional seminar called The Great Behavior Breakdown is coming to several sites throughout the United States.  Come and experience the introductory seminar FREE and learn powerful information that will not only change your child's behavior but will totally transform the relationships in your home.  Visit for more information.

Children with difficult behaviors can challenge even the most seasoned of parents. Rules and consequences have become the main intervention to direct and change undesirable child behaviors. Current research has revealed that stress has an enormous impact on children and their ability to sit still and learn. Stress causes confused and distorted thinking and suppresses the short term memory. How can children be expected to learn when they suffer severe stress in their homes and then go to school with preoccupied minds? Children need a calm and emotionally regulated adult close by to feel safe so they can become regulated which in turn allows them to be mentally present and learn. To learn more about how to help children become more emotionally regulated consider attending one of the upcoming Great Behavior Breakdown Seminars offered by the Central Valley Counseling Center in Fresno, CA. Parents have found the techniques taught to be life-changing. For more information or to register email Ellen Truschel at . The next FREE Great Behavior Breakdown Seminar is on May 10, 2010 from 8:45 to 5:30. Purchase of materials is required (34.95). If your child has difficult behaviors, don't miss this opportunity to reduce the stress in your life and increase the love in your home!

I was in the *ugust class with you and Helene. I just found your website. I haven't lost my enthusiasm for GBB, but I haven't been able to devote time to get this going here. I keep talking about it and refferring people to the website. Today I need to give someone some hope and I found you. I'll refer her to your website ans she can go from there.
Though I'm not doing classes yet, I am committed to spread the word.

This approach can change lives by keeping families together.

Bad human communication leveas us less room to grow.Rowan D. WilliamsCommunication the human connection is the key to personal and career success.Paul J. MeyerCredibility in a member to me starts first with communication. If a member is very good about communicating with myself or other members on the team, I feel comfortable referring a client to them. Communication means: answering emails or returning phone calls promptly, if something happens to come up communicating this to me as soon as possible is key! (ie: if a member is going to be absent from a PC meeting, they email me ahead of time and let me know who to expect will replace them this really gives them a gold star in my book). (ie: if a meeting is scheduled, and that person beats me to the punch to communicate BEFORE the meeting happens to confirm = Credibility) etc.. etc..etc I know if a member takes the time to communicate the good and the unfortunate they will be honest and do the same with a referral I pass and also earn my respect. Communication = Respect = Referrals
