Children with Challenging Behaviours: Positive Strategies for Change [EVENT FULL]

We know that children use their behaviour as language, so it essential that we understand that children who are exhibiting challenging behaviours are doing so because they are having a challenging time.  This Online Workshop will look at the neuroscience of children’s behaviour and offer opportunities for participants to “wonder” about a child’s behaviour.  It will also offer practical strategies for managing children’s challenging behaviour and ways to build resilience.  The workshop drawers upon the work of Dan Siegel and John Gottman.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Increased knowledge of the developing brain;
  • Increased ability to help children manage their emotions, and
  • Increased understanding of relationship-building strategies.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
