About Dr Ken


Dr. Ken Resnick is a registered educational psychologist. Ken started his career in education as a Senior Primary School educator. He then went on to complete his B. Com., B. Com. (Hons.) and M.Com (Industrial Psychology) degrees. Being keen to register as an educational psychologist he was required to complete his B.Ed. (psig) degree at Pretoria University. He has been in practice since 1988. He has also had 20 years’ experience as a school counsellor/psychologist and was awarded a doctorate that scientifically evaluated and validated his Smartchoiceparenting Programme (SCPP) that he had developed. He has presented his SCPP and conducted workshops for both parents and teachers for the past 10 years. He has been the step-parent to 3 children who together with their mother has successfully raised them according to the principles and structures of his programme. 

Ken is of the opinion that the SCPP is the only evidence-based parenting programme that has overwhelming success in dealing with the full spectrum of childhood developmental problems including extreme disorders such as Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional defiance Disorder (ODD), encopresis (soiling), enuresis (bed-wetting), school refusal amongst others to more regressive problems such as sleeping in parent’s bed, not wanting to get dressed, not brushing teeth to poor school performance.
