This workshop will first look at challenging behaviours and re-frame these to distress behaviours. From there, we can clarify why these distress behaviours are happening and review examples of each. Importantly, we will learn the foundations of boundary setting that work best for neurodivergent young people. While doing this, we will start thinking about traditional parenting advice and how we might need to rethink consequences in order to build a young person’s sense of safety, trust and overall well-being.
Each in-person course will have a max of 15 attendees and will be in a Workshop format.
The course will run 10am-12pm and there will be lunch provided afterwards as well as time for questions for the in-person course. When booking, please do let me know of any dietary requirements. Bookings close a week before the event to allow planning.
We apologise – but these courses are not suitable for children and there is no childcare available.
