Overview

Course overview

In this two-hour virtual session, you will learn about the types of tantrum that you are likely to encounter when working in nursery settings and primary schools, and how to respond positively to these behaviours in ways that support children to learn how to regulate their emotions.

Tantrums are a normal part of development for toddlers and young children, yet it can be difficult for adults to know how best to respond to them. While there is plenty of advice available on how to respond, much of it is conflicting and, in some cases, even harmful. What’s often not made clear is that there are in fact two different types of tantrums, which require different responses from the adult.

Drawing on current research into the development of the brain, this course explains the neuroscience behind the two different types of tantrum, gives you tools to distinguish between the two and provides tried and tested strategies for responding to each type of tantrum in ways that promote brain integration and emotional regulation.
