There is always a reason for the behaviour! This one-day workshop will provide an understanding of the integrated neurobiology of sensory processing and emotional/relational problems that result in “challenging behaviour”. 

Participants will be invited to forever more become behavioural detectives, using clinical reasoning, to look deeper than the surface. By seeking to understand why people do the things we do, from a myriad of perspectives, we allow compassion into the equation. This alone changes the brain – but the mindset of clinical curiosity supports treatment strategies at home, at school and in all levels of relationships. 

Participants will learn: 

  • To identify and discern the neurobiology of challenging behaviour 

  • To differentiate between the sensory, emotional and cognitive components that drive behaviour 

  • To develop a repertoire of sensory strategies to support behavioural challenges in a variety of contexts 

  • To develop a toolbox of relational tools for co-regulation through attunement and compassion
