Understanding and Responding to Pain and Pain-Based Behaviour: A Central Challenge for Residential Child and Youth Care Workers

Tuesday, February 28, 2023
11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CT

The presenter coined the term “pain-based behavior” as a result of researching the elements and dynamics of effective group care settings (Pain, Normality and the Struggle for Congruence: Reinterpreting Residential Care for Children and Youth, Anglin, 2002). This webinar will explore the significance of children’s psycho-emotional pain and the dynamics of pain-based behavior in residential care settings. We will consider such questions as: How does pain-based behavior relate to trauma? Is all challenging behavior pain-based? How can workers and agencies respond effectively to children’s pain-based behavior? How can an agency support workers who are experiencing their own pain and pain-based behavior?  Please bring your own experiences and questions to this dialogue.

Presenters:


James Anglin, BA, MSW, Ph.D.
Emeritus Professor, School of Child & Youth Care;
University of Victoria, BC, 
Canada

Professor Anglin began his career as a child and youth care worker in a mental health centre in Vancouver after which he developed a 6-bed group home for adolescents in Victoria. He then pursued graduate studies, worked in social policy in Ottawa and with the Children’s Services Division, Government of Ontario, in Toronto. Returning to B.C. in 1979, he joined the faculty of the School of Child and Youth Care at the University of Victoria where he is Emeritus Professor and former Director.

His major research interests have focused on a re-appreciation of residential care for children and youth (e.g. Pain, Normality and the Struggle for Congruence: Reinterpreting Residential Care for Children and Youth, Routledge, 2002). Currently, he is involved in researching the implementation and impact of a principle-based approach to residential care with colleagues from the Bronfenbrenner Centre for Translational Research at Cornell University.

He has published in North American and international journals and child welfare texts on a variety of child and youth care issues. He is on the editorial boards of Child and Youth Services, Residential Treatment for Children and Youth, International Journal of Child and Family Welfare, Journal of Child and Youth Care Work, International Journal of Child, Youth and Family Studies, Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care, and Reclaiming Youth at Risk.
