Transforming Challenging Behaviours and Environments: 2 Full Days

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 classrooms and schools across different demographics.

Workshop Overview:

By attending this two-day workshop and follow-up webinar, you will discover how you can transform the negative impact of challenging behaviours and environments to ensure all learners thrive. You will go beyond managing challenging behaviours to understanding, planning and leading sustainable action using a combination of evidence-based learning and wellbeing strategies as well as practices.

 

The two-day workshop has been crafted to motivate teachers, leaders & support staff 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 to create short and long term impact (transformation);
  • Use these essential transformational strategies to plan and activate sustainable changes to minimise challenging behaviours, improve student learning and wellbeing, and ensure the growth of positive relationships and environments (sustainable action).

The follow-up webinar (a couple of months later) will provide important opportunities for participants to provide feedback on their sustainable action plan and implementation. Participants will be contacted prior to the webinar to inform the additional strategies that will be shared based on their needs and requests to ensure this experience improves their professional practice.

 

This workshop series will allow participants 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 (e.g. Tricky emotions: aggression; anxiety, grief; fear. Diagnosed conditions: ODD, ADHD. Other challenges: Trauma; Learning Difficulties; Withdrawal);
  • Understand the most appropriate strategies than 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 classrooms and safe environments;
  • Implement their sustainable action plan with support and guidance.
