Describe how an individual can be supported to reflect on an incident including the consequence of their behaviour

NOTE: Please be aware that the information on this page is a very rough draft and has not been fact-checked so should be used accordingly (taken with a pinch of salt)! However, it should (hopefully) give you some pointers and set you off in the right direction.

The individual should also be encouraged to discuss the consequences of their behaviour. these could be positive (e.g. they got they what they wanted) and/or negative (e.g. they damaged one of their possessions) and they will often be linked with negative feelings (which are discussed in the next question).

In many cases, the consequences of the individual’s behaviour will be negative – they may have hurt themselves or broke something that they cherish or hurt somebody or been arrested. By being open and non-judgmental with the individual, you can help them to understand that are no better off because of their actions and are most probably worse off because of them, which can help make it less likely of a future incident occurring.
