If your child is either shy and passive, or aggressive and mean, if they tend to be the victim, or if they tend to be the bully, you are the best teacher for your child. And we have an evidence-based manual based on good, solid scientific evidence available for you at our website for the UCLA Family Commons. It’s a 26-session program that basically is a manual, a how to manual for you to help your children learn better social skills. We encourage you to role play, make an action drama with your child. You child is an actor in a problem situation and you practice that situation over and over until they are able to demonstrate a way of behaving that you feel good about and they feel good about. Those behaviors are practiced overtime and then you have to catch them being good, doing those behaviors in your day-to-day life at home. Try the instruction manual at our website UCLA Family Commons.
