Children engage in challenging behaviours, but as educators and parents we often ask why. Austrian Psychologist and educator Rudolph Dreikurs described four goals of behaviour and proposed that children “misbehave” out of a mistaken assumption that they can gain social status with their own challenging behaviour.
° To identify Dreikur’s 4 Mistaken Goals of Behaviour.
° To understand these goals and learn how to apply techniques to guide the children in our care.
° To explore helpful ways to respond to challenging behaviour.
This workshop is suitable for all early learning and child care professionals working with preschool and school age children, parents, instructors, students and administrators.
