We have all displayed behaviour that others would consider “challenging”. Think of a time you could not control your behaviour and answer the following questions.

  1. Pinpoint the actual behaviour that you were displaying.
  2. Describe in detail, how you felt in that moment? What was happening in your body?  What was going through your mind?
  3. What do you think was happening that contributed to this behaviour? Be sure to relate your answer to the factors discussed in class.
  4. Describe the reaction of those around you. What was helpful and what was not helpful?  How would you liked people to have responded?
