All children engage in oppositional, defiant, and emotional outbursts from time to time. Though frustrating, defiance and arguing are an important part of development for all kids. However, these behaviours become a problem when they happen frequently, when they are excessive, and when they begin to impair a child or youth’s functioning at home, at school, or relationships.
With alarmingly high prevalence rates, behavioural disorders represent the most common group of mental disorders in children and youth. These behaviours are often accompanied by other serious mental health disorders and can lead to serious problems over the long-term. Further, these behaviours have extremely deleterious effects on kids’ interactions with their parents, teachers, and peers and cause substantial strain on the child, family, and community.
Early intervention and treatment are critical to support their social, emotional, and behavioural well-being and reduce future risk. Therefore, parents and professionals alike must understand the nature of these behaviours and be familiar with the most effective interventions for these behaviours. This webinar is therefore vital for anyone working with children or youth with behavioural concerns.
In this workshop, clinicians, educators, and families will learn about best practices to effectively work with children and youth and manage behavioural disturbances across all contexts. Participants will develop a comprehensive understanding about the unique needs children and youth have and their behaviours. The gaps and limitations in current behavioural approaches are addressed. Practical, effective strategies that can be immediately individualized and applied to address the unique behavioural needs of children across contexts are reviewed.
