Course Summary: This continuing education course will equip professionals with research-supported techniques to motivate 4-12 year-old children and their parents to always use booster seats and seat belts. Course participants will be taught to recognize when an education-focused safety intervention approach is insufficient, and when and how to modify their approach for more of a persuasive impact. Finally, two example programs that are empirically supported to improve car safety among booster-age and tween-age populations will be shared with the audience. These toolkits (Boost ‘em in the Back Seat and Make it Click) are freely available online for participants’ later use in their day-to-day interactions with children and their families.
