    A Remote Control For Self Control

    Hunter and His Amazing Remote Control by Lori Copeland, Ph.D. is a cognitive-behavioral approach to teaching self control to children whether or not they have ADD/ADHD. Using the buttons on their “amazing” remote controls, children learn how to improve self-monitoring, impulse control, and self-confidence. Through Hunter’s story children hear how Hunter learned to use his very special remote control. I will be running an 8-week Group for 2nd graders called Click based on the book by Lori Copeland. This group will meet at 8:10 am until 8:45 am once a week in the counseling office until the group concludes. Transportation will be determined by each individual family. In this group your child will receive their very own “Remote Control” and will discover how to use it to manage their behavior and optimize their learning. Students will learn strategies to improve self monitoring, impulse control, and self confidence. In the group, each session will focus on a particular topic.The topic schedule follows:

    Channel Changer: Filtering out distractions


    Pause: Stop to think, relax, create a plan


    Fast Forward: Thinking before acting


    Rewind: Shifting focus from past failure to future change


    Slow Motion: Mindfulness, relxation, and mangaing emotions


    Solving Problems: Problem solving steps


    Coach: Adults can help!


    Zapper: Recognizing and rejecting negative thinking


    Way to Go: Using positive self-talk
