Managing Tough Behaviors!

Behaviors following trauma or toxic stress are often a result of dysregulation. And efforts to calm the person or regulate behaviors can be perceived as a reward instead of a consequence or means of accountability. Parents or caregivers can experience frustration and feeling as though he/she “got away with it again.” This workshop focuses on empowering participants to manage the most difficult behaviors using a trauma-informed lens.
