For those who work with youth, managing challenging behaviours that interfere with development, learning or success can be both frustrating and exhausting. This workshop will review challenging behaviours related to aggression, non-compliance and attention-seeking, and will provide a framework for intervening with these behaviours. Participants will analyze the effectiveness of their current approach and develop insights into what is happening when attempts at intervention do not work. They will gain a clear understanding of how to structure interactions for positive outcomes and will be provided with a coaching model to bring out the best in youth who exhibit challenging behaviours.
Please note: This workshop does not provide training for clinical therapy or review clinical conditions that may lead to challenging behaviours.
