    I will use the knowledge gained from completing this course when supervising foster carers and thinking about the behaviours they are managing, their reactions and responses to the child and how they support them.
    Thinking about the values and principles required to work with vulnerable children and young people.
    Revisiting the impact of neglect and trauma on the developing brain.

    Great

  3. Profile photo of Kirsty Cox Kirsty Cox says:

    I know that my role within the child's life can impact their day, how i react to them and the situation can either defuse or escalate their behavior. I know that if they have experience trauma then the brain may have formed differently and that behavior can be impacted.
    I always try to stay calm, i always listen and try to have fun. Probably i need to make sure i'm reading all situations even when busy.

    I have learnt the key principles for helping a child defuse their behavior. Liking them, looking out for them, being clear about expectations, being straight, being fair, being firm, getting over it.
    I have learnt about the 5 needs of people, Biological and physiological, safety needs, belonging and love needs,esteem needs and growth needs. I have learnt that for homeless people they may stay on the foundation level of biological needs, abused children may be on the safety needs level and not be able to reach any higher depending on circumstances.
    I have learnt that different children will behave in different ways even if they have experienced the same trauma.
    Great

    I have learnt in this course to distract the child and not to react so i will definitely use this stratergy. and lots of other things that this training has taught me.
    The best interest of a child should be the primary consideration.
    30% to 90% develop PSTD
    Scared children do scary things.

    AFTER COMPLETING THIS COURSE, I HAVE LEARNT THAT THE STARTING POINT FOR IMPROOVING CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR FIRSTLY, HAS TO BE, THE PROMOTION OF POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR.
    TO ENSURE THE PERSON YOU ARE LOOKING AFTER HAS A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING, OF EXPECTATIONS AND CONSEQUENCES ETC.
    THIS CAUSE HAS ALSO GIVEN ME AN INCREASED UNDERSTANDING, ABOUT THE CAUSES OF HALLENGING BEHAVIOUR.
    THE VARIED STRATERGIES DISCUSSED IN THIS COURSE, ALLOW US AS CARERS TO CONTINUE DEVELOPING MORE EFFECTIVE WAYS OF DE-ESCULATING SITUATIONS.
    SOMETHING THAT IS VITAL, THAT BEING, A CONSISTANT APPROACH TO BEHAVIOUR MANAGEMENT, SPECIFIC REWARDS AND SANCTIONS, BEHAVIOUR STRATERGIES AND ENSURING
    POSITIVE BEHAVIOURS ARE CONSTANTLY PRAISED.
    CONSEQUENCES THAT ARE GIVEN, ARE EXPLAINED TO THE YOUNG PERSON, AND THAT THEY ARE FULLY AWARE, (AGE APPROPRIATE, THAT THEIR ACTIONS, HAVE A CONSEQENCE'.
    TO BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND (IN DEPTH) THAT SOME CHILDREN DISPLAY CHALLENGING BEHAVIOURS, DUE TO TRAUMA THAT THEY MAY HAVE SUFFERED, PRIOR TO BECOMING LOOKED AFTER.
    PSYCHOLOGICAL ISSUES CAN ALSO BE A FACTOR AS TO WHY, CHILDREN DISPLAY CHALLENGING BAHAVIOURS, THAT BEING THEM FEELING EXCLUDED, LONELY ETC.
    AS FOSTER CARERS, WE WORK WITH SOME REALLY ANXIOUS YOUNG PEOPLE SO WE MUST ENSURE, THAT WE ARE CONSISTANT AND CLEAR IN EXPECTATIONS AT ALL TIMES.

    HAVE A FURTHER INSIGHT INTO FURTHER STRATERGIES TO BE USED, FOR MANAGING CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR.
    MORE INDEPTH UNDERSTANDING, WHY CHILDREN DISPLAY CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR.
    AFTER COMPLETING THIS COURSE, I HAVE A MUCH BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR.
    Great

  7. Profile photo of Elaine Soulsby Elaine Soulsby says:

    I will be more patient and open to the fear behind the potential escalation. I understand the constant increased level of stress hormone in a child who has suffered abuse and neglect and understand that the child needs me to help reduce the fear by being calm, in control of myself and ready to listen to the child in a non threatening, non blaming, non judgemental way.
    That I need to be available to listen, ready to understand, non judgemental, non critical...Also that most of my communication is non verbal ie facial expression conveys more than anything then tone of voice and words are a tiny part.
    That the bad behaviour and escalation is frightening for a child. They need help to manage themselves and need me to help them feel safe by keeping calm, confident and in control of my responses.
    That I can influence and trigger escalation by my action and reaction.
    Great

  8. Profile photo of Diana Crawford Diana Crawford says:

    Scared children do scary things" I will take on board the course structure, values, positive attributes of the child telling a child negative things will have an negative impact on the child and those around them. I will be mindful how my expressions can cause negative impact of the child and be mindful of de-escalation techniques. Where possible give the child a choice in the consequence.

    5 points of Maslov hierarchy
    30-90% of children have the likelihood of being diagnosed with Post traumatic stress
    1974 Working Act " All employees also have a duty of those others who may be effected by their actions"
    Great

    Having completed the course. I have read further research regarding consequences having struggled to understand that these are not a punishment. I have spoken to Social workers to gain information and ideas from them as to how effective consequences can be used.
    I have to be confident and consistent in my approach.

    I knew that effective communication was important just not how significant the body language and facial expression was. Non verbal communication is important.
    The story of the African tribe I told to a young person in me care who 'labels' herself as a bad Person who always mucks things up. These were her words and having completed the course it has made me especially aware of creating positive thoughts and feelings when talking to young people. Praise the good, no matter how small and maybe insignificant. Self worth is paramount. The Maslow theory I have used before under safeguarding. I had never thought to use or understand its significance when managing behaviour.
    The importance of ones own set of values and how this can impact on others around me. Its important that I have confidence in my own beliefs and strength in them in order to project a positive self image when working with others. I need to think about the enjoyment and pleasure I get when working with children. I need to be fair, firm and forgiving: Tailoring needs to suit the age and development of the individual without creating unrealistic expectations.
    Great

    when taking these into daily I life,
    I will try to always step back from emotional situations before making judgements and decisions to ensure that The best outcome is achieved.
    With Maslow hierarchy I found it quite fascinating how the five stages fit together and will use it daily when socialising and living with others and caring for children.
    Again with the children's act it is useful to know the supportive framework that is there to support children and when needed I can use this to ensure that we advocate for all the children who enter our care.

    The children's act of 2004 and how that strengthened the 1989 act
    Maslows hierarchy of needs
    To step back and reflect before making judgements
    Great
