This interactive, fun and engaging seminar, run by Ian Luscombe, will inspire you to approach your peers, students and parents in a new way. Sharing new insights and techniques that result in improved understanding, communication and relationships, we will explore the underlying reasons for why kids do what they do and provide positive strategies for managing the myriad of annoying behaviours you are likely to encounter. Throughout the day you will have the chance to question your thinking, entertain new thoughts and gain practical ready-to-use strategies to help you and your students excel.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • The 3 major ways to manage disruptive behaviour.
  • The importance of managing our own emotions, and how to do it.
  • How to promote consistency among staff when dealing with students with challenging behaviours.
  • Written rules vs Unwritten rules.
  • Specific management techniques for students with oppositional behaviour.
  • Examining some of the reasons students behave the way they do.
  • A technique for dealing with situations that you don’t know how to deal with.
  • School culture and how it either supports or hinders the consistent application of rules.
  • The use of preventative scripts to encourage compliance.
  • The use of corrective scripts when we need to set limits around behaviour.
  • How to use; vicarious praise, proximity control, wait time, voice tone and selective attending.
  • How to give an instruction that will encourage compliance.
  • Why teaching is a free personal growth course…
  • …and much more.

Course fee, which includes morning and afternoon tea, lunch and handouts is $325 plus GST.
