Identification of High Risk Behavior - Part II

Children will first “communicate” their problems, conflicts, fears, etc. through symptomatic behavior which is often mistaken for THE PROBLEM. What parents need to know is when they are seeing a symptom and when it is a problem. If a child does not recognize or does not have the label for the problem, then the tension is usually released through some form of behavior. We call these outlets of tension, “behavioral symptoms”.The focus of this handout is to inform parents of behavioral signals that may indicate a more serious problem.
