Understanding emotions and behaviour - parent training
As a parent of a child with additional needs you might find that:
they have episodes of violent or explosive behaviour
you don’t know how to manage this behaviour
you feel embarrassed to take your child out in public
you can’t keep your child safe
you are simply exhausted from the daily challenges
Our parent training on emotions and behaviour will build your understanding of why your child is behaving the way they do. You will come away feeling more confident about how to support your child and hopefully feel closer to them as a result.
This training covers what emotions are and how they develop, as well as what challenging behaviour can look like. We share a range of ideas for how to develop your child’s awareness of their emotions and tips and advice for dealing with their challenging behaviour.
