Understanding Behaviour of Children and Young People



What lies behind 'unacceptable' child behaviour? What are its causes, and who is responsible? How does one deal with aggression, delinquency and hyperactivity? There are no simple solutions to managing these behaviours … but this informative course should answer some of your questions, increase your overall understanding, and help you cope.


This course is intended for all children’s workforce practitioners, i.e. all staff who work with children, young people and their families. Although this course forms part of an induction programme for new starters, it is also intended for all practitioners who want to improve their knowledge and continue their professional development.


The course explores what is unacceptable behaviour, and who is responsible. You will learn how to describe different types of challenging behaviour, and the situations where it occurs – observable and hidden. You will also get an understanding of why it happens, its consequences, and some tips for managing it in different age groups.

You will automatically get a course certificate on course completion – with your name, the CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.


Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have a knowledge of: 

  • The benefits of studying the behaviour of the child or young person
  • The words used to describe behaviour
  • Observable and hidden aspects of behaviour
  • What is meant by acceptable behaviour
  • How to manage the challenging behaviour of various age groups, using examples
