F2F Workshop


Transforming Challenging Behaviour in the Specialist Classroom

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 challenge increases in specialist settings where teachers have shortened timeframes to work with students, understand their needs, build relationships, and engage them in their learning.

Go beyond managing the symptoms of challenging behaviours to understand why your students are experiencing these challenges (causation).  Experience the most effective strategies to know how you can work with common identified challenges related to your students’ holistic needs 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 can thrive within your specialist context.


This workshop has been crafted to motivate specialist teachers & support staff within these contexts to:

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


This workshop will allow you to:

  • Use a holistic map combined with collective behavioural assessments and observations 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 within a specialist context (e.g., aggression; anxiety; defiance; grief; fear; trauma; learning difficulties; withdrawal);
  • Understand the most appropriate strategies that you can apply to their challenging case(s) to improve learning and wellbeing outcomes;
  • Develop a sustainable action plan that supports the diverse needs of your identified students and classes to create your calm and safe specialist learning environment.
