Description of Resource

This toolkit outlines an approach that parents can utilize in place of physical and psychological punishment. Though the Toolkit was designed primarily for those working abroad, it is extremely applicable to service providers working with refugee and immigrant families in the United States. Of particular relevance to service providers are the sections on: natural and logical consequences (p. 76), establishing norms and limits in families/schools (p. 77), conflict management (p. 89), and managing aggressive behavior (p. 106). The Toolkit includes case scenarios that can be used for discussion and other activities suitable for parenting classes.
