One of the most frequently reported problems in a child’s development is oppositional behaviour. Although there are ages when opposition towards an adult authority is typical, the defiance of some children can be a challenge to their future well-being. Oppositional behaviour can lead to problems within the family, at school and in the community. Defiant children present clear risks to their own future adjustment. Defiant behaviour leaves in its wake depression, problems with the law, school failure and many other significant difficulties. TIPES offers parents a research-based, systematic program for the strategic management of oppositional behaviour.  Children learn to cooperate with their parents and teachers, reaching functional and pro-social goals.
