In neurodiverse families children may sometimes display behaviours that are often associated with psychological disorders e.g. OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Phobias, Self-Injury, Eating Issues, PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance) etc. Within PowerWood we call these behaviours Narrowing Behaviours as they may limit our children’s freedom to explore opportunities and make choices freely and are experiencing the Cycle of Emotional and Sensory Overload.
This workshop is designed to inform and empower parents and carers who want to help their child to get in charge of them, and model intrapersonal communication methods empowering children to stay in charge of Narrowing Behaviours also in the future.
Get practical tips to bring home
Simone de Hoogh will explain Narrowing Behaviour, underlying theories and how to get a handle on it.
The workshop will also allow participants to share challenging real-life situations around this topic and unpick it together with Simone to get further clarity which factors are at play and Simone will share additional theories, strategies and tools that can be helpful in those real-life situations.
If we succeed in making a reasonable quality audio recording this will be made available to you as well without any extra costs.
