Webinar - Going Beyond Behavior-Specific Praise: How we can utilize praise for social and emotional learning

This webinar reviews ways in which parents, teachers, and caregivers can utilize praise to teach values and ideas. Many of us have been told to use behavior-specific praise - stating what behavior our student or child is doing or is doing well when giving verbal social reinforcement But why do you want that behavior to continue? Which of your values does this present? What does this mean in the larger social context? This presentation will describe how we can give praise that teaches children our social and emotional values, in addition to providing reinforcement.
