Click here for more information about the Managing Challenging Behaviours in the Classroom Seminar, to be held at the Syndal Baptist Church Activity Centre in Glen Waverley on the 17th of October.
This fun, entertaining, inspiring and above all practical seminar will provide all mainstream and special educators [K-12] with strategies for managing the myriad of difficult behaviour that they typically encounter in schools. This seminar is also suitable for other professionals that deal with children and adolescents with challenging behaviour.
Some of the topics to be covered include:
• The three major strategies for managing disruptive behaviour.
• Managing the emotional impact a child’s disruptive behaviour can have on ourselves.
• The importance of knowing what’s driving disruptive behaviour so that our management of it does not exacerbate what may already be a stressful situation for both the teacher and the student.
• Characteristics of commands that increase compliance.
• Dealing with non-compliance.
• Why some students say nasty/hurtful things, and how to deal with this.
• What to say when you don’t know what to say.
• The importance of establishing whole school systems of support and research proven examples.
• The difference between prevention and intervention and practical examples of each, and why it is important to focus the majority of our energy on prevention.
