Default Re: Need help please

Chrissy,

Much of behavior modification is based on education. In essence we educate our clients in alternatives to current behaviors. I have found that when dealing with MR, some of the problems encountered are due to the client not having the language for verbal expression or knowledge of helpful methods of physical expression. There are many ways to teach these skills. Many use emotion cards; duscuss each face, when the client felt that way, what they did when they felt that way, give them a word to describe it, then practice alternatives for expressing it. This is where I might begin with a tough case. Hope this helps.
