20/03/10 LONDON: Challenging Behaviour in Children & Teenagers: From Understanding to Intervention.

Saturday 20 March 2010 (10.00am-5.15pm, registration 9.30-10.00am)
Cost: £160 (includes a complimentary buffet lunch)

In this conference presenters will focus on both causes of and effective interventions for challenging behaviour in children and teenagers: those who disrupt others’ learning, those with attention deficit or hyperactive problems, the oppositional defiant, those with conduct disorders who have moved into violence and anti-social acts, the hyperaroused who are unable ever to be calm. Such children and young people can de-skill and exhaust the adults in their lives. Moreover, behaviour problems can severely affect a child’s/young person’s capacity to learn to enjoy human relationships, to develop emotionally and to lead a fulfilling life. Statistics show that a staggering 80 percent of children with behavioural problems at the age of five go on to develop more serious forms of anti-social behaviour, and over 90 percent of young offenders have had a mental health problem as a child. (Mental Health of Children and Adolescents in Great Britain ONS 2000).

The key focus of this conference will be on evidence based methods and key tools and techniques for prevention and intervention. Presenters will offer practical ways of working with challenging children and young people based on a wealth of their own experience. Drawing on the advances in psychology, child development theory and neuroscience presenters will share exciting initiatives to show how challenging children and teenagers can be enabled to develop emotional regulatory capacities to make the shift from primitive discharge of emotional intensity to reflection, self-awareness and the ability to thrive.
