Tuning in to Acting out – responding to the behaviours and needs of young people
Organiser: Encompass Family & Community
Address: Airport International Motel, 528 Kingsford Smith Drive
This advanced workshop assumes that participants have a working knowledge of the impacts of disrupted attachment, trauma and loss upon young people in care or disengaged from family. We know that these issues underpin the often challenging behaviour of these young people. But how best to respond? This workshop takes a very practical approach to applying this theoretical knowledge in everyday work with troubled young people. It considers effective behaviour guidance, staying safe when behaviour is extreme, and responding to behavioural crises in ways which apply the evidence about ‘what works’ in addressing the underlying causes of the behaviour.
Who should attend?
Experienced workers in both government and community services working with young people, including youth workers, direct care workers in residential services for young people, statutory child protection and juvenile justice workers.
