How do we survive the tough days? Particularly now, with kids out of school and being asked to work/teach/clean and stay sane while doing so.
Do you ever wonder what the purpose of the behavior is really about?
Do you notice yourself getting super agitated over a repetitive behavior and wish you could make it go away? Or find yourself extra sensitive/impatient during these times?
What if these answers could be found by diving into the narrative behind the language of behavior? In this episode we dive into several different behaviors that can be both complex and challenging and what they serve for the individual, how we can support them in finding new ways to meet that need with a different behavior, and shifting how we see the person based on what we discover.
