Event description
Challenging behaviour can be really difficult to manage at home and in the classroom, we discuss what causes it and how to prevent it.

About this Event

We are asked all the time to support families who's children display what is commonly known as "challenging behaviour".

We are delighted to bring our expertise into a webinar where we aim to share our knowledge and improve understanding of behaviour.

The first stage in being able to manage behaviour to ensure it's healthy and appropriate is to spend time understanding the reasons behind it. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE AT LEAST ONE REASON (often more!).

Using Corrina Wood's 'Say OUI to Managing Behaviour: Observe, Understand & Implement" we will cover in depth:

  • The development of the brain & what happens to the brain when a child feels anxious or 'triggered'
  • Why children may struggle to make sound decisions when in a state of anxiety/anger/worry/frustration
  • Causes of these big emotions
  • Masking; the reasons behind a difference in presentation or behaviour between settings (ie, home Vs school)
  • De-escalation - healthy ways and means
  • Low arousal approaches; re-framing what we do and say as adults
  • The lasting effect of these 'episodes' , how to minimise trauma for all involved
  • Ways to reconnect and recover
  • When and how to have honest discussions about safety and when to have such discussions

We will, of course, be taking your questions on the night.
