DESCRIPTION:

Students who are defended can give the impression that they do not want to be in connection with others. It is important to understand that this a defense that is created by their brain to protect them from all that is too much to bear in their world. They need to be secured, invited into connection with adults and interventions need to proceed ever so gently. Otherwise their brain will maintain the defenses and the student will become even harder to reach. These students crave attention and connection, it needs to be provided indirectly, generously, and without coercion. Our defended and hard to reach students need to be able to rely on and trust their adults. Understanding that this is highly challenging and vulnerable for them, establishing key adults and targeted interventions are what is recommended.
