What’s it about?

This one day workshop has been designed to assist professionals working with children from 0-12 years to gain understanding of the possible causes of challenging behaviour and also gain practical skills and strategies for managing challenging behaviours.  The workshop will explore the impact of trauma, complex trauma and disrupted attachment which may include experiences such as abuse, fire, domestic violence, family breakdown or severe whether events.
