DISTRESSED OR DELIBERATELY DEFIANT? Early Attachment Trauma and its Effects on Behaviour. How Schools Can Respond.Inquire Now
Grounded in attachment theory and neuroscience research, this seminar will explore the reasons why students who have experienced trauma and disrupted attachment behave the way they do in school. These children and young people often defy rules and authority, can be verbally and physically aggressive (without obvious triggers) and can provide many challenges when it comes to forming and maintaining constructive relationships. Many widely used behaviour management approaches and systems tend to have minimal impact and sometimes make things worse for these kids!
A model for effective behaviour management planning in schools
Practical strategies and approaches which are informed by neuroscience
Best practice for managing crisis, suspension and exclusion where attachment disorder is a variable influencing behaviour
Dr Judith Howard is a senior lecturer and researcher with the Queensland University of Technology. She also has an extensive history with the State Education System in Queensland during which she has worked as a teacher, a school counsellor, a child and adolescent behaviour specialist and has held both Regional and State positions overseeing behaviour support processes in schools. This seminar is based on a successful training program that Dr Howard has run in Queensland over a number of years. It will have both a practical and theoretical focus and an emphasis on strategies that aim to help children and young people with attachment issues relate more adaptively to adults and peers, develop skills for emotional regulation and engage more effectively in their learning.
This seminar is a must for all educators and other helping professionals who work with schools or receive behaviour management referrals from them.
