#110: What is Behind Aggression in FASD and What to Do
Aggression is one of the biggest concerns I hear from caregivers. Why does it happen, how to respond and how to manage or stop it.
It is such a concern that researchers have noticed and are now looking at it in more detail. In this episode, I talk to Dr. Jacqueline Pei, Dr. Mansfield Mela, and Jessica Joseph about their recently published paper: Aggressive behavior and violence in children and adolescents with FASD: A synthesizing review.
Behaviour, including aggression, is communication. This paper will give you some starting points to look at what might be driving that behavior. Kids are not getting up in the morning saying they want to be an a**hole. Our job is to figure out what is going on and how we can respond with more understanding and bring professionals on board to help.
