Understanding and Managing Difficult Behaviors: Strategies for Temporary Caregivers

Managing difficult behaviors is one of the greatest challenges for foster parents. Many children in care have received harsh and abusive treatment from someone that was meant to keep them safe, and subsequently, have difficulty trusting caregivers. The behaviors they exhibit developed in response to their previous environments and are therefore quite adaptive in nature. When the child is moved into a safe environment they often continue these behaviors unnecessarily and it can be very frustration for foster parents.

This workshop looks at the various reasons why children have developed the behaviors they exhibit and what the need behind the behavior is. The facilitator will also help foster parents to explore possible responses to behaviors that ensure they do not activate the child’s fear system, but at the same time set firm limits, to ensure the child’s safety and wellbeing.
