"Tricky" behaviour

Updated: Sep 14, 2022

In a session, when I ask "What is a challenging behaviour?" lots of answers arise. Many of them are connected with what triggers us, such as someone saying "no" or not listening to us. I describe a challenging behaviour as a "tricky" behaviour. Mostly, because when these behaviours arise, they can be unsettling, we may not know what to do or how to respond. Another aspect is that behaviours that are deemed challenging tend to isolate or decrease rapport with other kids and staff which, if unchecked, can lead to exclusion from class, school or community programs.
