Workshop participants learn about the types of lying and why children lie. Then they look at the case of a 16-year-old boy who lies constantly, and at his foster parents' reaction. With the help of Dr. Richard Delaney and his teaching assistants, participants work together to develop an action plan for the parents, with concrete steps for coping with and curbing the boy's chronic lying.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
understand the four types of lying
recognize behavior clues for identifying types of lying
understand six common reasons for lying
learn how to emotionally support a child who lies
develop and implement an action plan for coping with lying
(6 credit hours, $30.00 per person). Requires discussion board participation.

I enjoyed this course and want to thank you for providing this service to foster parents. The material provided good reminders about getting past the behavior itself down to the cause and need that's being fed. Then, I can use more effective, strategic interventions.
