This course unlocks the neuroscience behind challenging behaviors, educators can begin to question the assumptions of behavior and what behavior communicates to us. Traditional “compliance or non-compliance” approaches ignore the idea that learning is state dependent.
In this course we look at challenging behaviors through the lens of survival behavior, or a survival state. You will learn concrete steps to support children’s need for relational safety as the groundwork for solving children’s behavior challenges and move children into the learning state. The more healthy relationships a child has, the more likely they will be to thrive. Relationships are the agents of change.
You will learn a step-by-step approach to de-escalating an escalated child. In addition, you will understand the three goals every educator needs to know when correcting challenging behaviors.
You will learn the most over-looked strategy when helping children to learn to self-regulate. It is probably not what you think.
Included in this course are many simple and effective tips to help children and whole classrooms regulate their behavior, all based in neuroscience.
This course is an essential tool for any educator or care-giver wanting to understand behavior and move children into a positive life trajectory!
