F2F Workshop


Transforming Challenging Behaviour (F-12)

With increased incidences of trauma, anxiety, diagnosed conditions and learning difficulties, the effects of these have presented themselves as challenges in behaviour, learning, wellbeing and relationships within many environments.  This also includes recent circumstances where students are feeling isolated and disconnected, impacting their sense of belonging and motivation.

Go beyond managing the symptoms of challenging behaviours to understanding why children are experiencing these challenges (causation). Experience related strategies to know how you can work with identified challenges and the whole child to create short and long term impact (transformation). Use these strategies to enhance positive relationships that build resilience, empathy, trust, inclusion and compassion. Discover how you can transform the negative impact of challenging behaviours to ensure all learners thrive.

This hands-on workshop has been crafted to motivate you, support staff and care professionals to:

  • Understand the importance of moving from managing symptoms to why they are experiencing these challenges (causation);
  • Experience strategies to know how we can work with identified challenges online and face-face to create short and long term impact (transformation);
  • Use these essential transformational strategies to plan and activate sustainable changes to minimise challenging behaviours, improve children’s learning and wellbeing, and ensure the growth of positive relationships (sustainable action).

This workshop will allow you, support staff and care professionals to:

  • Use a holistic map combined with behavioural assessments to understand causation;
  • Experience a range of essential evidence-based learning and wellbeing strategies that support different developmental and communication needs related to challenging behaviours displayed in different learning settings (e.g. aggression; anxiety; defiance; grief; fear; trauma; learning difficulties; withdrawal.)
  • Understand the most appropriate strategies that can be applied to their challenging case(s) and environments to improve learning and wellbeing outcomes;
  • Create a sustainable action plan that supports the diverse needs of identified students and develop calmer and safe environments.
