Challenging Behaviours - Understanding and responding to children

In-service Workshop

Early Childhood Educators have a unique opportunity to support children and families in relation to behavioural challenges. Understanding challenging behaviour is a two-way learning approach that involves both the child and the adult.

There are many factors that contribute to children’s behaviour and children may require different levels of support and adult intervention. A child’s behaviour is always a form of communication and responding in an
appropriate way requires self-reflection and an awareness of our own and others responding toolkits.

All children have a huge capacity to learn, so this workshop seeks to explore and explain challenging behaviours. This workshop also explores values, beliefs, the context around challenging behaviours as well as the functions and responses.

Pre-requisites: Nil
Duration: 2 hours
Minimum numbers: 10
