School as a safe space (14:20 - 14:40)

Understanding containment - physical and emotional - has to come before implementing behaviour strategies for children and young people with SEMH needs. It is where a person receives and understands the emotional communication of another without being overwhelmed by it, thus helping young people to reduce anxiety and self regulate. Too often we begin to implement behaviour management strategies that are unable to be sustained long term, due to the absence of the knowledge and implementation of containment and reciprocity primarily.
