What will I learn?
The SQUABBLES for Counselors Program is a comprehensive professional development course for therapists who work with children. It presents an easily taught and learned approach to dealing with aggression that empowers the individual, reduces bullying and aggression, and improves the child’s relationships with peers at school and siblings at home. You will become proficient in the
 SQUABBLES Conflict Resolution System that is designed to build up the emotional resilience of a child in their unique areas of vulnerability. A child who learns to become unfazed by petty quarrels and non-criminal offenses suffers less and experiences an increase in personal satisfaction and academic achievement.

You will learn research-based strategies and tools to help students manage conflict. You will gain skills to empower students to manage their emotions and resolve their social problems. You will gain quick intervention techniques, access evaluation tools, and enjoy a library of role-play games to solve painful problems in a spirit of play.
