This series of two workshops explores the understanding that, 'behaviour is a form of communication to meet human needs'. Using the Phoenix Cups framework and work from theorists, you will engage in conversations and reflection to rethink your approach. Based on case studies of children, we reframe our thinking together to explore the child's perspective, their needs and triggers and how our own practices may be reinforcing their behaviours. The aim of this series is to prepare you to support children's wellbeing, with skills and tools to better understand the child's own needs and to respectfully support the child to meet these needs.
