How to Manage the Therapy Session for Positive Behavior Responses

Often in our work environment, we hear that a therapist may be struggling with the behaviors of a child. But what does that mean?

So when we hear “struggling with behaviors,” what might we be referring to? When a therapist struggles with a child having a behavior, this usually means the child is exhibiting an unwanted action. This could be in the form of refusal to partake in therapy by saying “no” or sitting in the corner, throwing a tantrum, or running away.
