Child Behaviour: Attachment styles & Reward Punishment Thinking - Public Talk

This two hour talk aims to expand thinking about Empathic Behaviour Management (EMB) and will consider the difficulties of reward-punishment thinking for developmentally traumatised children. EBM is a method of therapeutic parenting by which adults can approach trauma driven behaviour armed with an empathic understanding of what is likely to be prompting that behaviour and thus be more effective in dealing with it.

We will focus on the importance of adult emotions when dealing with trauma and go on to consider factors which effect the behaviour of developmentally traumatised children i.e. shame, affect regulation, experience dependent brain development and trauma memory. 

Finally, we will spend some talking though some real-life issues, how to use EBM strategies and spend 30 minutes on Q&A.

Child Behaviour: Attachment styles & Reward Punishment Thinking - Professional Workshop

This is a two and a half hour workshop to explore Empathic Behaviour Management (EBM) and to consider the difficulties of reward-punishment thinking for developmentally traumatised children. EBM is a method of therapeutic parenting by which adults can approach trauma driven behaviour armed with an empathic understanding of what is likely to be prompting that behaviour and thus be more effective in dealing with it.

We will focus on the importance of adult emotions when dealing with trauma. We will briefly consider factors which effect the behaviour of developmentally traumatised children i.e. shame, affect regulation, experience dependent brain development and trauma memory. 

Finally, we will spend some time working though ways professionals can use EBM in a consultative framework with foster carers and adopters to facilitate greater connection in working relationships to enable more effective, more collaborative problem-solving.
