Impulsive behaviour is related to a child’s inability to put on the “mental brakes” before acting.

It has been variously defined as behaviour without adequate thought, the tendency to act with less forethought than most individuals of equal ability and knowledge, or a predisposition toward rapid, unplanned reactions to internal or external stimuli without regard to the negative consequences of these reactions.

This course will cover the basics of impulsive behaviour and issues of identity and self-worth.

The learning objectives are as follows:

  • To know what impulsive behaviour is
  • To recognise cause and effect in the behaviour of traumatised children and young people
  • To be able to identify the reasons why the children you look after act on impulses and struggle to control or regulate them
  • To gain knowledge of techniques for positively responding to challenging situations
  • To understand the importance of taking account of the experiences, preferences, wishes, and needs of individual children and young people and their families to help them manage their behaviour
  • To explore issues of identity and self-worth

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
