Workshops for Educators
No Such Thing As a Bad Kid: Understanding and Responding to Challenging Behavior in the Classroom.
Our most popular workshop for educators, this one- to two-day training can be presented in 2 to 14 hours and can accommodate any number of participants. Each attendee receives a 45-page handout, which is available in advance for workshop facilitators.
Part I begins by exploring the importance of creating a strength-based culture in your school. Other topics include: Examining the origins of troubling behavior from a number of perspectives (e.g. psychological, neurological, developmental, social, physical, etc.); how to respond instead of react to problem behavior (i.e. stay cool under pressure); self-esteem building; and proactive interventions.
Part II offers practical tools to help teachers better engage and relate to challenging students. Areas covered include: communication strategies; teaching students to self-manage; limit setting theory and techniques; dealing with the non-motivated, inflexible student; and strategic applications of behavior modification.
