CYPW diploma: CU1571 - HSC 3045 - Unit 115 - CYPOP 41 - promote positive behaviour
This is what I wrote for 2.6
If you use proactive strategies then you can stop the behaviour before it starts. Therefore the child feels calm and relaxed and everyone is happy. If reactive strategies are used then the behaviour has already happened and the child may be experiencing remorse, be ashamed,confused, humiliated about the incident/outburst. Whereas Proactive strategies identify triggers and early indicators that help to stop the behaviour before it starts, reactive strategies deal with the behaviour once itís done.
If house rules or boundaries arenít known then the child wonít know what is expected from them.
