Problem behaviors in early childhood are associated with poor outcomes in adolescence and adulthood. This brief continuing education course, developed using material from Child Trends, synthesizes information assessing the impact of numerous behavioral interventions on children ages birth to five. The components of each program are discussed as well as their effect on modifying externalizing and internalizing problem behaviors. Additionally, a detailed example of one program, Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) for Preschool, is presented.
1. Identify adolescence and adulthood consequences associated with problem behaviors in early childhood.
2. Differentiate between adverse externalizing behaviors and internalizing behaviors among children ages birth to five.
3. Review key findings of program evaluations that assessed the impact of best approaches to reduce problem behaviors in early childhood.
4. Identify directions for future research to enhance outcomes in reducing problem behaviors for young children.
5. Provide an overview of Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) for Preschool, including implementation approaches and results.
