Hello everyone
My question is that i am a carer for a 19 year old male who since i have started working with him rips my clothes off and will only stop until he has finished this.
Has anybody had the same experience and if so what did you do?

Many thanks

    Hi @Bearpip2020 :) Welcome to the community!

    That sounds quite challenging. It's not something I've experienced myself, but I hope another member will be able to offer you some advice. 

    Have you tried giving him something else to rip up?

    Do you know what might be causing this behaviour?

    I don't know how it works but are you able to speak with his previous care givers to see how they handled it??
