RC Webinar
Understanding Dysregulated and Aggressive Behavior: A Neurodevelopmental Perspective

Aggressive behavior, along with other types of dysregulated behavior can be motivated and precipitated by a variety of factors.  Understanding the needs met by the behavior as well as the underlying neurological factors that may lead to dysregulation and aggression is an essential element in developing effective interventions.  This workshop will examine some of the different pathways that lead to aggressive behavior in the clients we see and discuss options for assessing and treating dysregulated and aggressive behavior, especially for those clients who have been unresponsive to more typical behavior management approaches.

Objectives:

  • Broaden our understanding of the neurodevelopmental processes underlying dyregulated and aggressive behavior
  • Explore how to assess the motivations and needs met by engaging in aggressive behavior
  • Discuss treatment interventions that target not only the youth's aggressive behavior, but also the environmental influences that may precipitate those responses

Most of our RC Webinars are 1 1/2 hours long. This webinar has a longer format than usual in the interest of more fully exploring this topic. Please note the time.
