Why take this course
Life is harder than normal for many children at the moment so it’s really important that we know how we can best support children’s emotional health and wellbeing.
Drawing on new research about children’s brain development, Miriam uses her extensive experience of working with families and children to give you a wealth of practical steps, insights and effective communication skills that you can implement straight away. You will learn how to work effectively with children, help them deal with difficult emotions and reduce emotional outbursts, guide them to learn from past mistakes, build healthy self-esteem and provide them with life-long skills including effective communication, positive behaviour, taking responsibility and understanding their emotions.
She also looks at the effects of difficult life experiences on children, their emotions and behaviour, as well as what causes challenging behaviour and difficult emotional outbursts in children who haven’t experienced such difficulties. Using the many insights and skills covered on this course, we can help children become their best and create environments in which not only children but also the rest of the family, class or school can thrive.
Please note: This new updated and expanded course was previously called: ‘Understanding and improving children’s challenging behaviour’.

Really glad I came today. Great new skills and helpful insights which I can take away and use straight away. Particularly liked the section on anger outbursts – that's going to be very useful.Teacher
I came on this course because I've been having such dreadful times with my teenager daughter – and at last I've been given real hope that things can improve as well as some concrete, realistic ways to go about it. Today also really helped me understand better where my daughter's behaviour is coming from and how I can best help her. Thank you very much.Parent
So useful to have a thorough grasp of which innate needs are essential for emotional health and the fact that children will attempt to get these needs met in whichever ways are open to them – a huge insight into the drivers behind behaviour. And I loved the language skills for improving outcomes.Educationalist
