A NEW approach to solving behavioral challenges by internationally known pediatric psychologist, Dr. Mona Delahooke. In Beyond Behaviors: Using Brain Science and Compassion to Understand and Solve Children’s Behavioral Challenges, Dr. Delahooke describes behaviors as the tip of the iceberg, important signals that we should address by seeking to understand a child’s individual differences in the context of relational safety. Featuring impactful worksheets and charts, this accessible book offers professionals, educators and parents tools and techniques to reduce behavioral challenges and promote psychological resilience and satisfying, secure relationships.
The tools and strategies will be particularly helpful for children who experience or have experienced:
– Aggressive, confusing or unpredictable behaviors

– Adverse childhood experiences
