When children display callous and unemotional behaviours

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Chances are your child at some point has displayed behaviour that has shocked you. They may have been unkind to another child or had a fight with their sibling. But these behaviours are often balanced by other displays of empathy and kindness, and we know that the callous actions we saw are just a natural part of an evolving child. But what happens when those behaviours aren’t balanced out? What happens when your child displays callous and unemotional behaviours?

Eva Kimonis is a Clinical Psychologist at the University of NSW.  She leads Parent-Child-Interaction therapy for parents of young children with disruptive behaviour problems. She explains how her work helps children with these specific needs.
