Personal Reflections on Lockdown: Andrew Smith will speak about his own experiences of lockdown, followed by a video collating all the submissions from children and young people.

'Managing Environmental Triggers

When a person is stressed or in a state of hyperarousal, they become highly sensitive to all sensory experiences in their environment. Whilst it is true that sensory sensitivity is widely understood by researchers in the autism field, sensory sensitivity is also common in people with a variety of other conditions. Managing environmental sensory triggers is therefore very important when a person is distressed.'

An excerpt from 'The Reflective Journey' by Professor Andrew McDonnell

‘Understanding the role of arousal levels in incidents of aggression and violence allows carers to manage these situations by working to lower arousal levels. Whilst heightened arousal does not necessarily cause aggression, aggressive incidents rarely occur when an individual is in a low state of arousal. How aroused a person is influences the way they interpret and react to environmental stimuli. A stress-free individual in a calm environment is less likely to engage in behaviours of concern as a means of relieving stress.’

At the core of the Low Arousal Approach is relationships. There is a better way to dealing with challenging behavior. You have to be well trained and this does not happen on a one day course.

Great to hear enthusiasm about the low arousal ethos! The more people we can teach about low arousal approaches, the more empathic and caring our support communities become.

An excerpt from 'The Reflective Journey' by Professor Andrew McDonnell (available soon)

On Forgiveness, Acceptance and Understanding

'This book is called The Reflective Journey for a very good reason, being that managing the difficult behaviours of other people is in fact much more about managing our own responses to distressed situations. A good low arousal intervention plan may at times require non-intervention. This can be extremely difficult for people to carry out in practice. A major criticism of the approach is that people sometimes feel that they have had to ‘give in’ to an individual’s demands. This ‘win or lose’ mindset can be extremely unhelpful in day-to-day practice. Feelings of helplessness can be difficult to understand, but it is important to acknowledge that sometimes in our work, we may feel helpless. Fighting our inner ‘demons’ is an essential part of this journey, and this includes challenging our own beliefs about what it means to manage behaviour.'
