Thursday 2 April | 9.30am
Relationships at the heart of changing behaviour in schools

Children and young people who are dealing with adversity often feel badly about themselves, others and the world around them. This has implications for their learning and behaviour in school. Punishment and reward are often ineffective in changing how students think, feel and behave over the longer term and can make things worse.  This keynote will summarise what teachers can do to build positive relationships with students and how to respond effectively in times of crisis.

 

Saturday 4 April | 12.45pm
Recipes for coping with challenging classroom behaviour (workshop)

Based on the Primary and Secondary Behaviour Cookbooks (Routledge, 2019) this interactive workshop will explore behaviours in the following categories:

• Getting Things Done
• Dealing with Disruption
• Social Interactions
• Coping with Conflict
• Emotional Distress
• Behaviours of Special Concern

We will be discussing the emotional climate in which strategies need to take place to be effective and the common 'ingredients' that are helpful in many situations.

Participants will take part in both group discussions and Circle Solutions Activities
The importance of teacher wellbeing will also be addressed.
