Course Overview

During this course you will understand how to identify challenging behaviour and the causes of this behaviour. For example we will look at the different stressors that can contribute to challenging behaviour and how this behaviour can escalate. We will also explore how we can deal with this behaviour in an effective way.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, participants will have; 
• Explored why a child may behave the way that they do 
• Gained an understanding of the principles of ‘attending’ when a foster child is playing in order that the child can learn how to receive positive attention from their foster carer 
• Gained an understanding of when praise and rewards works best 
• A better understanding of ways in which we can promote positive behaviour 
• A better understanding of how to encourage positive behaviour by using methods such as ‘start chart. 
• Explored that children have to understand the consequence of their behaviour. 
• Gained an understanding of when and how to use ‘logical consequences’ 
• Understand how to use ‘time out’ so it is effective for the child’s behaviour
