Managing Children with difficult behaviour
Certain types of "difficult behaviour" are most often, though not exclusively exhibited by childrenwith learning developmental disabilities,those from dysfunctionalfamilies, aggressive and violent backgrounds and some children in looked after care (LAC) facilities.
Our service will help Carers and Professional staff develop the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to understand and manage children in a home and community based environment.
We provide a range of training packages for professionals and carers working with children and young people, such as supporting young people who self-harm, Attachment Theory and child development, supporting young people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the Impact of Abuse, Trauma and Neglect. Our training is fully flexible and can be adapted to meet individual needs.
We have significant experience working with and training foster carers and adoptive parents to develop an understanding of the impact of trauma on children and young people and introduce a range of practical strategies to help children and young people develop and overcome traumatic experiences.
We are able to offer cognitive assessments and assessments of adaptive functioning. We are also able to offer assessments of children and young people where there is a diagnostic query of an Autistic Spectrum disorder.
Our Children's Service offer courses such as:
