HfCF Intervention Resources - Working with children and young people: Addressing disruptive behaviour
Intervention guide editor: Hilary Eldridge
This guide recognises the increasing risk of externalising (i.e. disruptive/anti-social behaviour in children and young people who have been exposed to maltreatment as they approach adolescence).
- enhance their competence by developing a ‘Good Life’, to achieve their primary goals in socially acceptable ways
- address disruptive behaviour, to manage anger, reduce disruptive, verbally aggressive and impulsive behaviour and understand the benefits of doing so
- assert themselves in more appropriate ways, practicing everyday situations
- develop positive relationships with family and friends, learning new social skills.
