Challenging behavior is often cited as one of the primary obstacles to successful interactions when working with young children. Using research from the field of neuroscience this course will 1) reframe challenging behavior as dysregulation, 2) outline the limitations of using reinforcers to manage the behavior of young learners and 3) explore the importance of using the 4 Cs (curiosity, compassion, connection, and co-regulation) to support young children during times of distress. Participants will gain effective strategies for addressing challenging behaviors by identifying and then addressing the why behind them.


Following this course, participants will be able to:

1. Explain the two primary causes of challenging behavior.

2. Describe how traditional behavior modification approaches that rely on the use of reinforcers can be co-escalating rather than co-regulating.

3. Summarize the importance of using the 4 Cs (curiosity, compassion, connection, and co-regulation) to address challenging behavior in young children.
