Tricky Behaviours, Troubled Souls: Working with Children with Challenging Behaviours

About the event

This event is aimed at empowering delegates with key knowledge and techniques to support children and young people who act out in challenging ways. Tracy Godfroy has worked for many years with children and young people who have experienced complex trauma, and who continue to experience significant levels of underlying emotional distress that often manifests in challenging behaviour.

Through case material and professional reflection, Tracy will discuss the power of connection and relationship as fundamental to the vital task of emotional regulation and healing.
