This course explores how to use a relationship-based care approach to understand and respond to child behaviors that providers find challenging. Participants learn to respond to children’s behavior by deeply reflecting upon their own reactions to children’s behavior, regulating their emotional reactions, and engaging families to mutually understand the reasons for their children’s behavior.
This course consists of 16 training hours, including six 2-hour sessions delivered over three weeks and four hours of independent work, including journal writing, viewing recordings, and practicing skills through an online simulation experience. Attendance is required at all live sessions; these sessions are NOT recorded. Participants who complete the course will receive a certificate.
