THE TRAINING PACKAGE WILL INCLUDE A VIDEOTAPE, SUPPORTING PRINT MATERIALS, AND A SELF-TEST. THE VIDEOTAPE WILL HAVE TWO PARTS. PART I WILL USE VIGNETTES BASED ON FAMILY INTERACTIONS AND WILL INCLUDE EXAMPLES OF PURE DESCRIPTIVE PRAISE AND POSITIVE SCAN. PARTII WILL CONTAIN A MODEL HOME VISIT SHOWING A PROFESSIONAL WORKING WITH PARENTS TO APPLY THE MODEL TO A TYPICAL CHILD MANAGEMENT PROBLEM.
