The struggle in helping individuals manage their behavior better is to understand why they are doing what they are doing. It’s easy to become angry when individuals begin to exhibit acting out behavior. We jump to conclusions and assume they are angry, defiant or hostile. But in many cases disruptive, even explosive behavior stems from a lack of skills that may not be apparent to parents, teachers, or employers. While challenging individuals let us know they’re struggling through some fairly common defensive and offensive behavior, they are unique when it comes to the combination of underdeveloped skills that can result in these behaviors. This session will help you to become “curious instead of furious,” about the issues underlying their behavior.
