Description of Webinar:
All behaviour is communication, but what is a child trying to tell us when they are disruptive, hostile, resistant, or hesitant? More importantly, what do these behaviours evoke in caregivers? This workshop will use an attachment lens to understand the motivation, and even the functionality of these behaviours, but focus more on what we, as caregivers, can do to take care of the unresolved emotions that precipitate such behaviours. We will look at redefining trauma to include the absence of the everyday necessary good, and how it affects the brain. We will look at an attachment based model, the Circle of Security, as a guide for decoding what is going on in that moment for the children, for us, and what we can do to create a shift for the child. Hint: It’s all about the relationship!
