Managing Children's Behaviour


Our Training

Children, like adults, thrive the best when they know their purpose, feel valued and feel safe. Take one of those away and it can feel a little scary. Often children's more challenging behaviour is because they are trying to tell us that they feel one of these is missing but they don't have the words to tell us. How we respond as adults can be a make or break for them and can be the difference between calm reflection and uncontrolled escalation. In our training we help adults understand transformation theory, triggers for behaviour and de-escalating techniques

Training Content

We can run a 2 hour training session to help you understand children's behaviour better, clarify what helps children to manage their behaviour better and what helps adults to de-escalate behaviour and help children reflect and modify. In our training session we cover the following areas. The session will include practical techniques to try.
