About the Workshop
Kids and teens who have experienced traumatic, out of control circumstances may often display disruptive, out of control behaviors in their everyday lives. Behavior therapy can be a crucial tool for helping to manage and contain negative behaviors so that new healing relationships can develop. This training will introduce you to practical tools that can impact even the most difficult behaviors.

About the Presenter
Joy Wong Liu is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC# 53681) who has been affiliated with Christian Counseling Centers since 2012. This workshop draws from Joy’s experience as a behavioral coach, helping kids and teens with severe behavioral issues achieve more successes at home and at school. Joy has worked with children and teens struggling with aggression, property destruction, defiance, and many other behaviors. Joy currently co-leads a drama therapy group for trauma survivors at CCC Hayward.
