Session 2: Playing Detective to Find the Root Cause of Quirky Behaviors
Ready for a mindshift about how to reframe and respond to a child's challenging behavior? Dr. Mona Delahooke believes that when we see a child's behavior not as "good" or "bad," but as useful information about a child's underlying physiological state, effective and compassionate interventions emerge. Dr. Mona explains how to decode the signals our child's behavior is sending, how to play detective, build an individualized toolkit, and communicate information to schools and IEP teams. Dr. Mona provides valuable ideas for problem solving, uncovering root causes of behavior, and helping kids get to calm. Dr. Mona also talks about resources to share with schools about harmful behavior interventions, as well as how parents can increase their capacity for healthy co-regulation. In this talk, Debbie and Dr. Mona discuss self-care in a new light that is brain-based and imperative, transcending our current attitudes.
