Event description

Description

Why do we get angry and distressed – the session will look at interventions, we will look at how anger can escalate and how there is a cycle of anger and how both the child and adult can learn to track that cycle so that they can intervene before it becomes out of control. This will include an experiential approach, which may be useful for the participants to practice with the children and young people they support. The experiential aspect may be more related to older children than infants, however it may be explored how it could be altered to work with younger infants within the group. The workshop will also explore what is the difference between a tantrum and a meltdown and how to safely intervene with both of these by looking at practical strategies that people may use. Throughout the workshop, the emphasis will be on how we as adults may also have an impact on the child’s anger and how we may need to track that within ourselves.

The Empower project is a Big Lottery funded initiative through the Reaching Out Supporting Families Programme which support Families across Mid Ulster and Antrim & Newtownabbey Council areas. The focus of the project is to support children under 12 with Autism, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia, their parents and the wider family circle to enhance confidence and learn together to develop skills to support their children.
