Challenging behaviours and partnering with families – Pro-D Series

October 25, 2023

CCRR is hosting a 4-part Communities of Practice commencing November 29th to discuss challenging behaviours and how we can navigate the “tough stuff” together. 

Katie Crosby, Occupational Therapist, will walk us through techniques to help children in emotional distress quickly and calmly de-escalate using our energy, body language and voice/tone.  This practice of co-regulation helps children develop healthy pathways in the brain for managing these big emotions in their later years.  In addition, we will be collaborating to develop communication strategies and resources to educate and/or share with families and caregivers to use at home.  Professional development hours are available. 

What is Communities of Practice (COP)?  

It is a group of people who share a concern or passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact over time (Curtis, Lebo, Cividanes, & Carter, 1993).  A COP is one of the more powerful professional learning approaches early childhood programs can offer, and when done effectively, professional learning becomes embedded in our daily practices (Carter, 2010).
