Milieu Management
The majority of children using intensive social services have experienced multiple traumatic stressors, these stressors have evoked survival responses that compel the children to "act out" in ways that are often seen as frightening, anti-social or odd to authority and caregiver. Many times staff gets sucked up into the behavioral patterns of children in crisis, or behavioral patterns that seem "deliberate". Milieu management training will offer education, solutions, practice and mastery for those who work in at risk settings.
