Aggression in Young Children: Helping yourself stay steady in tough situations

Saturday June 9, 2018       Time 10:30 am - 3:00 pm       4 hours 

Fee: $65.00     FCC Fee: $50.00 (Promo Code)                   

Some days you have to deal with a child who lashes out. Often you can see it brewing and you want to step in early. You also notice it’s hard on you. Maybe your stomach begins to churn or your neck or jaw tightens. Your workplace has a specific protocol. You know what you're supposed to do and telling yourself to breathe before stepping in just isn't enough to ease the tension inside. Automatic physical reactions need physical strategies. This experiential workshop draws on the concepts of interactive neurobiology and self-regulation to teach you practical techniques to use in these difficult moments.


  • Practice picking up earlier signs that a child is about to erupt.
  • Learn physical strategies you can use right in the moment to ease the tension you feel.
  • Explore and practice methods to support yourself so you can act more calmly and effectively.

*Suitable for parents, students, adult instructors/administrators, novice, intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with children of any age from infant/toddler, preschool to school age children, including children with extra support needs.

Presenter: Shayna Hornstein. Shayna is a body-focused counsellor, registered physical therapist and adult educator. Her organizational development work improves resilience and workplace communication. In her clinical practice she helps people lessen the impact that stress has on their bodies. She especially enjoys supporting frontline child care educators and caregivers, for they do critical work that builds healthy communities.

*Bring a Bag Lunch (1/2 hour lunch)

*Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
