Summary

A new approach to solving behavioral challenges.  

In Beyond Behaviors, internationally known pediatric psychologist Dr. Mona Delahooke describes behaviors as the tip of the iceberg, important signals that we should address by seeking to understand a child's individual differences in the context of relational safety.  

This accessible book offers professionals, educators, and parents tools and techniques to reduce behavioral challenges and promote psychological resilience and satisfying, secure relationships.   

Neuroscience-based effective tools and strategies for children labeled with: Conduct Disorder; Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD); Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD); Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD); Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD); Anxiety and Depression; and Autism and Developmental or Learning Differences.  

And children who experience or have experienced: aggressive, confusing and unpredictable behaviors; tantrums and meltdowns; disconnection or shutdown; adverse childhood experiences; and trauma and toxic stress.

Very interesting perspective!

I enjoyed this book, I found it very interesting.
There are like 30 worksheets in it tho - I’m hoping those can be downloaded somewhere rather than having to relisten and make notes.
The last chapter was my favourite one - it reminded me of the fact that playing with my children and saying yes to drawing with them or watch them working out a puzzle is so much more important than tidying up the kitchen!

Excellent and helpful, missed pdf support

This is an excellent book with very helpful insights into how relational safety can help reduce and even resolve difficult behaviors. My only criticism is that it includes quite a few diagrams and tables which are hard to follow in audio form. Other audiobooks of this kind that I’ve listened to included pdfs that, as a purchaser of the audiobook, I was allowed/encouraged to access. This book would benefit hugely from taking the same approach.

Interesting book but needs an abridged version

I kinda struggled to finish this book although the narrator is exceptional and the information provided very interesting. However, it was way too long for me. When I was picking up from where I was left, I was kinda lost.

A must read for anyone who works with children.

Whole Brain Child, Discipline with out Damage, No Drama Discipline- all books that have been wonderful and helpful. This book fills a gap and goes deeper into bottom up behaviors and where they come from. Anyone who works with children will benefit from this book. If you have been a struggling parent this is a game changer.

fantastic book with great info but buy the book

this book is very informative, thorough, and narrated very well. i recommend buying the actual book because you really need the worksheets. it's nice to have this book playing while getting things done around the house, but if you can't do the suggested exercises you're really missing out.

Must read

Absolutely one of the best books I have ever read on my quest for knowledge on how to help my child. This book provides insights into raising children with a present compassionate approach rather than the traditional authoritative consequence reaction.

Not audio friendly

This is not a book to listen to on Audible to many worksheets and things to be able to follow along auditory. I would suggest getting the physical book if you are interested in reading this I found it not to be helpful.

Interesting information.. too heady

I appreciate the theories explained in the book and believe they have merit in explaining the psychology behind my child’s behavior but I would like more on how to apply this theory in practice. It is very clinical and sounds more designed for PhD’s, not parents desperate for solutions to problematic behaviors. We don’t care what a theory is called, the scientific terms or where if came from… we just need answers!

highly recommend

I loved this book. it's a different perspective that's scientifically based and so compassionate. This work is so absolutely needed. I hope to see the paradigm shifting more and more away from diagnosis focused to what she presents here. highly recommend for caregivers, teachers, parents and clinicians!

understanding my son & myself

Honestly I see a future where this book is a manual in a classroom that should be taught to every kid in school and to their parents so they parents so they can start rewiring their brain for a new mindset. It will change the world

The robot voice

The topic was interesting but it was to get past the robotic voice. It sounds like a Siri voice and not from a real person. I wish I wouldn’t have ordered it through audiobooks.
