Vicious Circle - How We Understand Challenging Behaviour 

Bo helps staff and parents to understand the thought processes they are faced with while dealing with behaviour they find challenging to manage.

He will provide successfully insight and strategies to;

● Identify how your thinking might trigger behaviour.

● Learn how to reflect and react when challenged.

● Use thinking to form a method choice framework.

● Create successful thoughts to support the autistic person, instead of fuelling negative behaviour patterns.

● Reflect on your beliefs about autism and behaviour. 

● Improve yourself, your thinking and actions.





Bo Hejlskov Elvén, one of Europe’s leading clinical psychologists specialising in challenging behaviour is based in Scandinavia. 

For over 20 years, he has been supporting autism-friendly housing with his Low arousal approaches and structure.

He published books translated into 15 languages on challenging behaviour:


-No Fighting, No Biting, No Screaming

-Disruptive, Stubborn, Out of Control?:
Why kids get confrontational in the classroom, and what to do about it

-Sulky, Rowdy, Rude? Why kids act out and what to do about it.

Bo lectures focus on managing challenging behaviour. In his lectures he delivers both practical and theoretical based methods on the low arousal approach to help students, staff and parents alike.

He focuses on staff and parent’s understanding of concepts like self-control, affect regulation and affect contagion in everyday life.

He also lectures on parenting, ethics in care and educational settings and stress in developmental disabilities.

Besides lecturing, he also does consultancy work. His focus is the behaviour of the staff and how it affects the behaviour of the person.

He personally supports staff working in education, care, therapy and psychiatric care units to manage people with developmental or intellectual disabilities such as ADHD, autism under challenging situations.

Another area of consultancy Bo focuses on is ethics and securing quality of care, especially focusing on the evaluation of the method in demand and conflict situations in educational settings.

Bo specialises in giving guidance based on an understanding of the person´s cognitive and affective abilities concerning people with autism. His approach to autism is instrumental and not to be missed.
