Sulky, Rowdy, Rude?: Why Kids really act out and what to do about it

Sulky, Row­dy, Rude? Why kids real­ly act out and what to do about it 

A lec­ture by psy­chol­o­gist Bo Hejl­skov Elvén spon­sored by SWEA Van­cou­ver

Loca­tion:  Big hall at the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre, 6540 Thomas Street, Burn­a­by BC

Day & Date: Sat­ur­day, Feb 17, 2018

Time:  9.30–11.30AM

Con­tact:  Lena  lena@nullyoungerface.com

Dan­ish psy­chol­o­gist Bo Hejl­skov Elvén is a well-known expert work­ing with the so called Low Arousal Approach and has togeth­er with Swedish writer Tina Wiman writ­ten the book Sulky, Row­dy, Rude?: Why Kids real­ly act out and what to do about it. Hejlskov’s per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence is that chil­dren with behav­iour­al issues often have prob­lems to reg­u­late their emo­tions, and that the Low Arousal Approach makes them calmer and gives them self-con­trol. The method cre­ates trust and col­lab­o­ra­tion between chil­dren and par­ents, and builds a stronger rela­tion­ship over time than tra­di­tion­al meth­ods.

Chil­dren go through dif­fi­cult phas­es and this is a nat­ur­al part of grow­ing up. Con­flicts and argu­ments are noth­ing excep­tion­al, but rather a part of every­day fam­i­ly life. There are how­ev­er ways par­ents can cre­ate a con­sis­tent and effec­tive struc­ture, which will yield a bet­ter response in their chil­dren. Based on years of expe­ri­ence work­ing with chil­dren, includ­ing those with spe­cial needs, Bo Hejl­skov will describe how you can struc­ture your par­ent­ing around the Low Arousal Approach. With many cre­ative sug­ges­tions and real-life exam­ples, this lec­ture by Bo Hejl­skov Elvén has the poten­tial to change fam­i­ly life for the bet­ter.

The pre­sen­ta­tion is open to the pub­lic and free to attend, but reg­is­tra­tion is required. Reg­is­ter by send­ing an email to lena@nullyoungerface.com. Seats are lim­it­ed so make sure you sign up before-hand. A wait list will be organ­ised if need­ed.

Buy the book on the Cana­di­an Ama­zon.
