Noeveryone grows up as they geolder. The construcof psychological immaturity has been with us as an intuitive concept for ages, but only recently has developmental science advanced to a state where it can now yield effective strategies and interventions to address learning and behavioural challenges.

Bestselling author of Hold On To Your Kids, Gordon Neufeld presents an integrated developmental approach to reaching troubled kids, using the constructs of attachment, vulnerability and maturation. In this workshop, Gordon takes the best that developmental science has to offer and delivers it in a usable form to the professionals who work with these children or those responsible for them.

His model has been honed from years of application in a wide range of settings: education, special behaviour programs, therapy, corrections, aboriginal communities, adoption, counseling, parenting, and the foster system. This material is applicable to children of all ages, from toddlers to teens. The insights and interventions apply to a wide range of presenting problems and syndromes including attention problems, bullying, impulsiveness, anxiety problems, learning disabilities, autism spectrum, oppositionality, drug abuse, aggression problems, boundary problems, alarming behaviour, boredom and much more.

  • How to uncover the relationship between psychological immaturity and the most common presenting problems and syndromes
  • Three distinct processes that drive maturation and how to support them
  • Maximize how emotional engagement warms the engine of maturation
  • To identify the signs being defended against vulnerability
  • Developmentally-supportive interventions for problems resulting from stuckness
  • Why separation-based discipline for stuck kids doesn’t work and how to provide alternatives
  • Why consequence-based discipline fails to work with aggression problems and what does
