Thrive is a constant reminder about how important it is to know about neuroscience and how children’s brains are developing, especially during the early years. We can almost be like brain surgeons because children’s brains are able to forge new connections and adapt. What we do here really is shaping children’s futures."

Elizabeth Leer. Deputy Headteacher and Senco. Rothesay Nursery School.

  

 

What you'll learn

In this two-hour virtual session, you will learn about the types of outbursts and meltdowns 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.

Outbursts and meltdowns are normal parts 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 outbursts and meltdowns require different responses from the adult.

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