How can we get better outcomes? (1)

There are a few simple things we can do to improve outcomes with our young people.

Mostly, these rely on us, as the adult, being in a well-resourced state. We can do this:

  • By being the adult in the adult-child relationship
  • By planning
  • By using rules
  • By having consequences
  • By using positive language patterns
  • By using Challenge-Ignore-Divert

In Unit 1 we explored the importance of being in a good state to deal with challening behaviour.

In this unit, we will explore the above factors, all of which contribute to our ability to get the best possible outcomes with challenging young people.
