Managing Family Meltdown

Author(s): Linda Woodcock

Parenting

Children and adults on the autism spectrum may often behave in ways that cause difficulties for themselves and those who care for them. This book offers effective, long-term strategies to help resolve common challenging behaviours such as physical aggression and self-injury. "Managing Family Meltdown" provides possible explanations for these behaviours, and offers a wealth of practical tips on how families can tackle different kinds of challenging behaviour. The authors explore the difference between managing and changing behaviour; how our own behaviour can influence the situation; and the principles of Low Arousal and its application in a family situation. Tried-and-tested ideas for intervention are provided and illustrated by case examples, and the pros and cons of medication are also discussed. This hands-on, practical manual will be indispensable for families, carers and anyone involved with children and adults with autism who need help with behavioral or emotional challenges.
