Understanding challenging behaviours

Understanding challenging behaviours

In this workshop, you will develop your understanding of the factors that may contribute to young people engaging in challenging behaviors and patterns in relationships. The workshop will introduce several theoretical frameworks for understanding behaviour, to enable you to develop responses that are collaborative and person-centred.
