The Westwood Public Schools and Westwood Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) are pleased to welcome For a Town-Wide Parent Workshop Charlie Appelstein

Starting the year out right with homework and other routines and expectations. Written primarily for professionals, volunteers and parents who guide kids with emotional and behavioral challenges, the revised edition of No Such Thing As a Bad Kid is packed with positive, trauma-informed, strength-based principles and techniques that help child-guiders to develop powerful and transforming relationships with the kids they guide. This empowering handbook opens by portraying misbehavior as a call for help. It then guides the reader through “decoding” the message and, via hundreds of hands-on tips, sample dialogues, and inspiring anecdotes into research-backed approaches for revolutionizing interactions with kids at risk. The book is all about changing the negative mindsets many kids harbor and giving them hope for better days. Even parents of children not at risk will benefit from this book.
