Supporting Children with Difficult and Challenging Behaviours Using Positive Guidance Strategies – 3 hour overview
Expressions and difficult behaviours of young children can baffle us sometimes when we struggle to understand them. The key to remember is that all behaviour is a form of communication…we just have to figure out what they are trying to say! Which is sometimes easier said than done. This introduction session to positive guidance strategies is an interactive and informative workshop about why children engage in challenging and difficult behaviours and how we can get to the core of this style of communication. Understanding each child and being pro-active in our approach to guiding behaviours will help keep a calm and encouraging environment for young minds to explore and learn. We will identify the communication behind the behaviours, how to build resiliency, activities to promote self-awareness and self-regulation, activities to build positive social skills and what to do when the big emotions overwhelm the children. Learn some practical strategies that can help you and the children in your room. Our goal is not to fix the behaviour but to support the child in learning more positive ways to communicate their needs, wants and ideas through positive behaviours.
