Parent Workshop: Challenging Behaviors
October 28 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm PDT$20
Parents and care providers are reporting increased frustration, stress, aggression and other related challenges that are
well documented in our children and youth, but not well understood. And, adult direction, teaching or intervention
seem to have little effect or can even make matters worse. Care providers are invited to join us and share their
experiences, as we gain insight into the root causes of many challenging behaviors and develop an understanding of how
we can help children to grow out of these behaviors.
While temper tantrums are part and parcel of the growing up developmental process, for many reasons, some children
can experience intense emotional reactions (at any age) that leave adults bewildered, triggered, frustrated or
questioning what to do. Often, typical strategies do not seem to have an effect and in many cases, make the situation
worse. This workshop will explore the roots of aggression, how self control and impulse control are developed and how
we can assist the developmental process.
