For those who work with youth, managing challenging behaviours that interfere with development, learning, or success can be both frustrating and exhausting. This workshop will review challenging behaviours related to aggression, non-compliance, and attention-seeking, and will provide a framework for intervening with these behaviours. Participants will analyze the effectiveness of their current approach and develop insights into what is happening when attempts at intervention do not work. Guidelines for structuring interactions for positive outcomes will be given, and a coaching model to bring out the best in youth who exhibit challenging behaviour will be provided.

Please note: This workshop does not provide training for clinical therapy or review clinical conditions that may lead to challenging behaviours.
