Dr. Ehren Werntz

Challenging behavior is a common feature of life with children and teens with developmental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Challenging behavior is most often treated by working directly with the individual with the disability. In this presentation, Dr. Werntz will discuss an alternate approach of addressing behavior problems in the context of the entire family. His talk will focus on four components of family-based intervention that are crucial for effective and lasting change.
