Challenging Behaviour

Strategies and resources for staff caring for children and adolescents with challenging mental health and unpredictable behaviour.

Why is it a Hot Topic?

Staff caring for children and adolescents in inpatient care are increasingly managing challenging and unpredictable behaviour from both patients and their families. How do we best prepare and support health professionals to respond to children and adolescents in acute distress in a way that empowers and validates while keeping staff safe? How do we equip health professionals to engage with parents and de-escalate/prevent conflict between families and staff?
