Challenging Behaviour in Foster Care
Foster carers will often find themselves facing challenging behaviour beyond that which they are used to dealing with. This course provides them with the understanding and skills to manage challenging behaviour with the goal of meeting the foster child’s needs.
This interactive course will enable participants to explore the issues that lead to challenging behaviour in foster children. They will learn:
- How to identify challenging behaviour.
- The causes of challenging behaviour.
- The different stressors that can contribute to challenging behaviour.
- How challenging behaviour can escalate.
Participants will learn how to respond rather than react to challenging behaviour through techniques including:
- Behavioural analysis.
- Behavioural planning.
- Reinforcing and rewarding behaviour that is incompatible with challenging behaviour.
- Appropriate use of praise and extinguishing behaviours.
The course includes the use of clear communication, de-escalation techniques and problem solving with the child to create win-win outcomes.
