Sandra Kwesell, Child Development and Family Dynamics Expert is the founder of the Pillars For Success program, and she learned many lessons growing up in a home with an older brother who had significant behaviour issues that tore at the foundation of the family. With undergraduate degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education and a Master’s degree in Counselling, she has worked with youth and families in preschool and other educational, therapeutic, day treatment, residential, and correctional settings. She has witnessed firsthand the life-altering catastrophes that can arise from behaviour that is out of control. Sandra is honoured to serve on the Board of Directors of Joint Initiatives for Youth and Families in El Paso County, Colorado. Sandra is also the mother of four children, and has been a foster parent for 25 years, sharing her home with children for whom living in a home… and participating in family and community life… would not have been possible without the rules and tools in the Pillars for Success program. She has “walked the walk” and continues to do so! Throughout her journey she has tested, re-tested and simplified interventions that are based on established research in child development. She discovered that there are actually only three core needs that explain why children act out and she has developed amazingly effective techniques to meet those needs.
