CPRT Training Session 8: Supervision and Encouragement vs. Praise
WithGarry L. Landreth, Sue C. Bratton
Pages 15

Refer to the Overview section at the beginning of Chapter 13 as a thorough review of the overall supervision process and important reminders that apply for Sessions 6 through 9. As in training Sessions 6 and 7, the major focus of this session is supporting and encouraging parents’ skill development and confidence through group supervision and feedback; thus, the majority of the allotted time is devoted to this activity. Encouragement is the only new skill introduced this week and builds on the training on esteem-building responses covered in Session 7.
