Vic park, I don't know about courses, but there is a DVD if you don't want to read a book.
I have the book, but have only read about counting, and stop behaviours.
Maybe check out your library and see if they gave the DVD or can get it from another library for you.
Another option. A mum's group friend gets her kids dressed before breakfast.
Not dressed? You can't eat yet.
Says she hasn't had an issue since.
I got the kindle book cause it only cost $6!! I've found it to be brilliant. Some days mr 2.5 ends up in time out 75 times, but mostly he doesn't get past 2. I have recently started using a reward chart - he gets a stamp on his chart when he goes to the toilet and keeps his jocks clean and dry, stays in his bed all night and when he gets dressed without being silly and running around naked/kicking us etc. That's helped heaps.
I think with any parenting, its great to read a lot of different approaches, pick one you like and tweak it to suit your family. I would try to borrow the book from the library r a friend to see if you like it then purchase the book if its for you. I have three kids and I have to parent all of them a little differently. The rules etc are the same but my approach can differ sometimes, purely because they are different kids and learn in their own way
