How do you handle a behavioural problem?
Behavioural problems are consistent, long-term patterns of actions that cause disruption in either his/her or other people’s lives.
Behaviour, in general, is simply a form of response to situations or stimuli. It is part of the cycle with our thoughts and emotions. Meaning, the way we understand situations or “triggers” affects the way we feel and the way we act on it.
However, biological difficulties (i.e. developmental delay, autism, auditory processing disorder, etc.) is one big group of factors that trigger behavioural problems. If the brain is underdeveloped, for example, the child or adult may have trouble understanding information and therefore, find it difficult to respond and react.
Brain disorders, specifically, could spontaneously disrupts one’s way of thinking and feeling leading to amplifying their reactions into long hours of temper tantrums, meltdowns, self-harm and/or hitting other people.
Some behavioural problems, on the other hand, look ordinary at a glance–brushing teeth, washing plates, locking doors etc. But doing these repetitively for long hours without any sense of satisfaction may make it difficult to be more productive and may isolate them in the long run.
