    Inappropriate behaviours at school, fear of being expelled

    We've read your messages last week so I wanted to keep you updated! He says he's fine with the switching of environnements. He says he doesn't feel pressure from deciding on a career. He's looking forward to continued education, doesn't see much interest in formal learning anymore. His...

    Inappropriate behaviours at school, fear of being expelled

    I think it was during a cooking class, so at least it means he didn't bring the knife over to the school but yeah, you're definitely right and i need to look into that (the school already took preventive measures i.e. not allowing him into that cooking class again but i don't think he has...

    General Struggling with staying at home with sufferer

    I don't know if this thought will help but would it be helpful to try and focus on the long term? As in, you've had a rough year, then a more positive time, and now it's getting very very difficult. The context right now is very specific (and many families are in a survival mode right now), so...

    Inappropriate behaviours at school, fear of being expelled

    (As I thought I prefered to leave him in peace today so the reading of the posts here is postponed till next week) Huuum, I do wonder how he's living it indeed. Yes, there is a limited time involved, in a bit more than one year he will switch to continued education indeed. He's not yet in the...

    Inappropriate behaviours at school, fear of being expelled

    It definitely helps, thank you very much. I think you're on the right track, your post made me think of some of his reactions with other people (family) as well. "Needed to be trusted / to be seen for who he is" sure rings a bell, when he feels like he's misunderstood / that people don't trust...

    Inappropriate behaviours at school, fear of being expelled

    Yes, I think talking to the teachers is definitely worth a try, that was a good idea from scout86 and Ronin. I'll suggest and explain it to the kid and the school director. No, he’s in a special education needs class, they’re 15 pupils per class and the contents taught are easier than usual...

    Inappropriate behaviours at school, fear of being expelled

    Posting for a 15 year old teenager, to whom I'll read and translate the answers. His motives and mine are different though, he says he wants to understand more than getting help (and I also think he's feeling alone in this), and I'm looking for ways to help him / improve the situation. His...

    Supporter Supporting a teenager with PTSD

    Thank you! :) Finding a Belgian or Swiss therapist is a clever option! I hadn't thought of this. The problem would then be financial, but it's still more accessible than travelling miles weekly to see a good therapist, and could facilitate the process one day. Similarly, I had thought of local...

    Supporter Supporting a teenager with PTSD

    He's not in therapy, and it's been a touchy topic, but steps have been made. One/two month ago a spot opened in a talking group (in a "CMP", medical & psychological center), one year ago he had said he was willing to try that (individual therapy was a no no), so I talked to him about this...

    Supporter Supporting a teenager with PTSD

    Hello everybody, Lately I've been trying to support a teenager who went through shit around two years ago, and was diagnosed with PTSD 6 months later. Sometimes we talk about what he still experiences (lots of hypervigilance, sleep problems, lack of control at school). I've read a lot on PTSD...
