IMH201 - Understanding and Responding to the Challenging Behaviour of Young Children

Students will analyze the multiple roles of the professional practitioner in understanding and responding to the behaviour of young children. Students will reflect on the historical, philosophical, social and scientific foundation of the field and explain the influence of current thought and practice. Students will also develop the inter-professional communication skills necessary to work in a collaborative practice involving educators, early learning and care practitioners, social workers and policy makers. Topics will include the significant role of attachment, the impact of trauma, social history and its influence on development, and strategies that equip the practitioner to learn and respond to the child's behavior in the "moment" and over the long term using a variety of strategies.
