A practical and informative workshop for the parents of toddlers (approx 2 - 3 year olds) who are behaving in ways that you find difficult, testing boundaries or losing themselves in tantrums.
The toddler years are a time of transition from baby to child, from physcial mastery and movement to cortical processing and verbal expression. The intensity of the changes brings with it a corresponding intensity of emotion. Tempers, tantrums, challenging or aggressive behaviour start to flavour family life and it is easy to find yourself lost in the emotional landscape, unsure exactly what you should be doing in response to your child's irrational or dramatic behaviour.
This workshop offers you time out to identify the underlying issues at play for your child and some simple, practical, strategies based on somatic therapy techniques to support your child . The first part of the workshop is time to think and learn the techniques to put into action during the week ahead. The follow up group online session gives you a chance to discuss, share and adapt your approach with my input.
Session One : Understanding and methodology.
• Neuro-physical development and biography
• The difference between tantrums and boundary testing.
• Prevention- how to identify and address trigger points.
• Paying attention- body language, touch and rebalancing
• Power play strategies that allow your child to express anger and agression in constructive ways.
• Boundary setting with consistency, kindness and respect.
• Worksheets and goal setting to clarify the strategies you wish to implement at home.
Session Two: Putting it into practice.
A group zoom session for sharing and discussion.
An opportunity to feedback on the impact of your strategies, ask questions and get support.
