Any tips for helping a six year old to understand defence mode? My 18 year old son has an Asperger’s diagnosis and we have successfully worked together to understand his triggers etc. But, he has never had any anger, flight or aggressive/destructive behaviours. I work with a six year old child who I believe to be deep in defence mode and suffering enormously - extreme outbursts, split second changes, complete overwhelm. Has anyone successfully reached a deeply overwhelmed child at such a young age? I would be so grateful to hear your experiences.
