The most important learning points for the participants were:
1. Although all diffuculties in working on shifts, the team has to develop the practice of having at least two team meetings per month and to discuss the dificult cases.
2. Having common team goal and team behaviot towards the "diffucult" children is the best way to cope with the problem behavior. For children with long personal history of institutionalization and violence is crutial to provide secure base for builing a new healthy relation of attachment.
3. Child aggression means insecurity, it does not mean hate.
