Consulting for Families
Any relationship has stressful times and having problem behaviours within the family can be hard for others to understand and fully appreciate.
When a family member is in distress it can be incredibly stressful and difficult to maintain an ongoing positive relationship. Pressure will be placed upon all relationships in the family and on all aspects of family life; your relationship with any other children in the family, with your partner as well as the relationships siblings will have with each other.
We feel it is absolutely essential that you get help and training that fits perfectly with your particular needs. This page gives you information about our work with families and those they care for. D.ESCAL8TM will provide you with a completely personal and bespoke service in your own home.
As the above testimonial says D.ESCAL8TM will come and work directly with you and your family in your home to gain a real understanding of the behaviours you are experiencing on a day to day basis.
This allows the consultant to observe the behavioural cues as they occur, assess possible triggers for the behaviour and provide specific methods of de-escalation that could be employed. Working in the home setting allows rapport, understanding and trust to be built up, not only with the individual in distress, but also the family who live with them. Bespoke proactive strategies can then be designed for the family when behaviour has become a significant problem.
We can also teach disengagement techniques should they be required and, crucially, practice these with family members so that they have the confidence that they work should they need them.
We teach hands on practical skills that enable people to disengage easily and calmly from:
- Wrist Grabs
- Pinching / Scratching
- Clothing Grabs
- Hair Grabs
We are happy to involve ALL family members in our consulting process; this gives us a clear picture of the impact any behaviours have on the whole household.
On our Family Workshops we welcome any family member over the age of 12 at the discretion of the responsible adult.
