Preemptive Behavior Therapy : The Path to Self-Correction
Preemptive Behavior Therapy is a low-impact behavior modification program designed to help children self-regulate their behavior without resorting to the use of traditional punishments, corrections or medications. Redirecting negative thought processes before associated bad behavior occurs is the foundation of Preemptive Behavior Therapy. This softer but more effective approach is based on ancient principles of animal behavior observation, human body language recognition and deliberate positioning, and using the concept of Redirections over Corrections. Developed by Debbie Cowan-Hackett - a veteran child caseworker and certified animal communicator, and Russ Hudson - who lived in numerous homes for troubled kids, Preemptive Behavior Therapy is designed specially for high risk and troubled children and teens, but will work with any child.

About Russ Hudson
Debbie Cowan-Hackett has made a career of working with children and animals that the rest of the world had thrown away. As a certified animal communicator and a former caretaker at Mother Teresa's mission in India, Cowan-Hackett developed PBT by natural accident as she learned to work successfully with troubled kids. By blending her expertise in animal communication with human body language recognition and negative thought process redirection, she created a program that allows children to avoid punishment and corrections and to be positively conditioned to self-regulate their behavior. Russ Hudson, co-author, spent most of his childhood in the types of homes and institutions for troubled youth that Cowan-Hackett has worked in. A freelance writer and editor for more than a decade, Hudson is also a former professional horseman and martial arts instructor.
