Virtual ICAC Workshop Opportunity – Join Dr. Mona Delahooke on Understanding Challenging Behaviors

You are invited to attend a virtual workshop with Dr. Mona Delahooke on Saturday, September 18, 1:00pm-2:30pm. Mona’s book, Beyond Behaviors: Using Brain Science and Compassion to Understand and Solve Children’s Behavioral Challenges, is now #1 in Clinical Psychology on Amazon.
Registration is through Tanager Place’s Meraki Institute’s page and is $10-…/autism-workshop-series…/
Dr. Delahooke presents an approach to challenging behavior that is based on relationship building, empathy, and an understanding of the neuroscientific underpinnings of maladaptive behavior.
This training will introduce a new approach to solving children’s behavioral challenges, focusing on building a child’s foundation for emotional and behavioral control and moving beyond paradigms that focus on compliance and surface behaviors.
Dr. Delahooke will describe behaviors as the tip of the iceberg, important signals that we should address by seeking to understand a child’s individual differences in the overarching context of relational safety.
Featuring helpful worksheets and charts, this training will provide educators, parents, early childhood interventionists, and providers across disciplines tools and techniques to reduce behavioral challenges and promote psychological resilience and satisfying, secure relationships.
Understand the “Developmental Iceberg” and how it helps us discover how to support each child and family’s individual needs.
Understand the 4 states of the nervous system that inform us what to do in real time when managing children’s behavioral challenges.
Describe how caregivers, providers and teachers can use the “therapeutic use of self” when working with vulnerable children, regardless of their diagnosis.
Describe the paradigm shift that is beginning across the country based on neuroscience research..

Join Other Autistic and Neurodivergent Adults on Discord

Our server on Discord allows autistic adults in the Iowa City and surrounding areas to connect and chat about what interests them the most. This is a private online community moderated by The Iowa City Autism Community.Please note that this group is restricted to only neurodivergent adults – that is, adults with one or more conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, etc. (As a note, self-diagnosis is totally valid.) We ask that you please respect the privacy of this group by not joining if you are not neurodivergent.

Discord is a community-based chat app (desktop and mobile) that is a combination between a message board and interactive chat. Users may remain anonymous if they wish.

If you want to learn more about Discord before joining our server, here’s an overview and a beginner’s guide.
