Demystifying Aggression

Demystifying Aggression: Understanding Aggressive Behavior from Multiple Perspectives with Effective Strategies for Promoting Safety and Self Regulation


February 2, 2020

UJA Federation of NY

130 E 59th St, New York, NY


Aggressive behavior is challenging and distressing for parents, teachers, clinicians and the children or teens themselves. Feeling unsafe and unable to regulate strong emotions frequently cause or contribute to aggressive behavior in all children, and not only in those with ASD or other developmental and mental health challenges.


Examine the underlying meanings and hidden triggers of aggression from multiple perspectives and learn both immediate strategies and long-term interventions to help children and teens develop capacities for self- monitoring and regulation, communicating feelings and fears, binding aggression in meaningful activity, and containing and processing their own and others’ emotions and anxiety.
