Description

Overview

The easy to use techniques can be taught to all staff, resulting in a consistent approach to help children develop more self-control and to respond more flexibly to frustrates and upsets.  The program draws from attachment theory (how relationships can influence behaviour) and social- learning theory (how children can be taught by those around them about how to self-regulate).  Talk Less Listen More methods-based learning is simple, effective and easy to apply in an early years setting.
