Episode 34 with child psychologist Mona Delahooke was posted a year ago and remains our top episode on the show. No wonder – Mona’s straightforward explanation of why children behave the way they do really resonated with so many listeners.
Based on concepts from her book Beyond Behaviors, Mona gives us practical advice on how to address challenging behaviours. She explains why what we see is just the “tip of the iceberg” and why certain approaches to managing challenging behaviours work better than others.
Drawing on concepts of the Polyvagal Theory she reframes how we need to understand behaviour so that we can parent more effectively.
Find out more about Mona’s resources and books (including her latest book Brain Body Parenting) on her website.
Also a reminder that Mona will be speaking at a conference with Dr Stephen Porges and our SFP host Dr Rob Meeder on April 14, 2022.
