Relationships with Children

Research And Theory In Behaviour - Webinar

When do children start to develop empathy and how does self-regulation play a part? How does the brain and developing emotional intelligence help you to cope with daily environmental demands and to problem solve in changing situations?


This session builds on your knowledge from Theory Basics of Behaviour, exploring a range of new research and frameworks that support children's behaviour and address our own behaviour as educators.


You will learn practical strategies that you can implement into your service, which will help you to better understand the triggers for certain behaviours and how to deal with them in children, within yourself, and within your colleagues.
