Presenter: Leon Hoffman, M.D.
All behavior has meaning. Children with behavior problems do not have sufficient internal strength to tolerate the pain and anxiety of disturbing emotional states. Disruptive behavior masks unpleasant emotion. In this talk, we will talk about how to try to understand which emotions are being avoided and help caregivers understand why that emotion is being avoided in a maladaptive way.
