Rising to the Challenge: Sessions on Perplexing, Challenging, and Difficult Behaviors
A monthly series held the first Monday of every month from noon to 2pm through June.
This monthly series will address a variety of various challenging behaviors demonstrated by youth who have experienced trauma: untruthfulness (i.e. lying), aggression, food hording and lack of empathy. These specific challenging behaviors are often the behaviors that lead youth to be referred to behavioral health services. Each monthly 2-hour training will explore a different challenging behavior, provide an understanding of why that behavior happens and provide techniques to address that behavior effectively. Each Zoom session includes a 1.5 hour presentation with a half hour for questions and answers.
