What is behavioral coaching? (http://behavioralcoach.com).
Behavioral coaching has its origins in psychology in the philosophical work by William James and later grew through the humanistic approaches of Abraham Maslow and Carl Rodgers. Their work paved the way for the study of optimal human functioning from which Maslow coined the term, âpositive psychologyâ (Maslow, 1954).
Positive psychology is the study of strengths and talents that lead to optimal human functioning.
Today, positive psychologists like Martin Seligman and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi have emphasized a shift in focus of both research and application of how strengths and talents can be amplified in order to create a more fulfilling life.
Independence Behavioral Coaching brings the principles of positive psychology directly into the home and/or school where the child is.
Why do families and teachers need access to IBC support service? Because it works!!!
After spending over a decade working with children, families and teachers, Eric Putnam, the companyâs founder and president recognized a gradual shift in mental health services from one focused on dysfunction to that of prevention. While focus on prevention is moving in the right direction, IBC supports a growing movement calling for another step forward to that of positive growth.
âI noticed a lack of available services for young children and out of what was available, everyone was focusing on fixing kids instead of celebrating themâ commented Eric, our services support what they are already good at in order to empower them to manage what they struggle at.â
IBC coaches focus on learning, performance efficiency and overall growth of the child and family. The behavioral coach gathers information about the child such as temperament, potential barriers within the environment and on specific targeted behaviors that are causing the child to struggle at home, in the school and/or in certain social situations.
IBC coaches and trainers encourage parents and teachers to shift their thinking from one where the focus is on changing behavior to one focused on:
- Increased awareness - Listening to the message - Celebrating talents - Practicing the positive
Learn how to celebrate your childâs talents, manage the difficult behaviors and guide your child to discover his or her best Self!!!
