WS04 Supporting Children through Challenging Emotions and Behaviours: An Attachment-Based Approach

Saturday, November 4, 2017

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

$40.00 per person


This workshop will discuss strategies for supporting children through their challenging behaviours. Attachment theory will be explored, using a Circle of Security framework. The different types of attachment relationships will be described. Participants will learn how children express their emotions and needs in often challenging ways, and participants will gain strategies to meet children’s emotional needs. Using current brain research, this workshop will discuss how to “be with” children through their challenging emotions and how to support them for future learning. Repairing relationships after challenging moments will be discussed. Throughout the workshop, Tanya will discuss the sometimes uncomfortable emotions that emerge with us as caregivers as we support children through difficult moments. Mindfulness strategies for supporting ourselves as caregivers will be provided. Examples related to child care settings will be used, as well as lots of group discussion.
