Participants will learn how to interpret, prevent, reduce and redirect negative behaviors which can lead to positive encounters and satisfaction at work and at home.

The seminar is designed for everyone, and will especially be helpful for school staff, agency staff, caregivers and family members.

The presentation will be given by Leigh Ann Kramer, Ph.D. Kramer has worked in Human Services since 1980 and has experience with identifying the challenges and needs of children and adults with various disabilities and care needs.
