If we could look at all behaviour as language, we would understand so much more about our kids (and ourselves) and
be able to support their needs before things become unmanageable.

Co regulation is when we, as adults, can model for our children the behaviour and emotional intelligence we are hoping to develop in them.
If we are calm and safe, we teach our children they are safe and can too be calm.

This fortnight we will be focusing on connection with children. How do we build and keep positive relationships with our children?
How do we support our children to build positive relationships with themselves? Re framing can help ourselves, and kids, to look at our challenges through a different lens.

When experiencing anxiety, it can be incredibly difficult to communicate what is happening for you. This simple chart is great for communicating with loved ones about what is happening for them, or for you. Excellent for use with kids and teenagers too. #anxiety #communication #psychology #mentalhealth #privatepractice #drolgalavalle #wollongong #womeninbusiness #ilovewollongong #smallbusiness #illawarra #psychologist #humansciences #childpsychology #familytherapy #psychologicalassessments #health #selfcare #medical #medicine #forensicpsychology #forensic #knowledgeispower #adolescentmentalhealth #empoweringpeople #professionaldevelopment #therapy #familytherapy #couplestherapy #strongfamilies ...
