Understanding Children’s Behaviour with Nikkol Adams

This presentation focuses on becoming curious about children’s behaviors. Nikkol discusses the meaning behind a child’s behavior in order to better understand how to support and redirect their behavior. Together you will  explore brain development, the autonomic nervous system, temperament,  possible goals of behavior, and strategies for supporting and redirecting behavior which include connection versus correction, discipline and boundary setting, and co-regulation. This presentation is designed for individuals  working with children between the ages of 3 to 12 years old in diverse settings who are wanting to gain insight and knowledge towards supporting  children’s development.

My name is Nikkol Adams and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Certified Yoga Instructor who uses the pronouns she/her. I have a deep  passion for the mind and body connection – helping individuals understand their emotional and physical  experience through the use of conversation and movement.  I currently work in both the private and public sector of mental health, opening my own online virtual counselling services – Essence of Self: Counselling and Wellness Services. I offer clinical counselling services to children, youth, and adults presenting with a variety of concerns and public workshops with the aim to help facilitate personal exploration and growth with a focus on reconnecting to the authentic self.
