Introduction to Managing Challenging Behaviour

This is a set of two workshops which have been developed to address recent research that highlights the concern of a majority of teachers who believe that behaviour in the classroom is getting worse. More teachers have seen standards of behaviour decline in the past five years and behaviour management has been highlighted as one of the key factors in causing teachers stress. These two workshops are aimed at school staff who experience stress and frustration related to classroom behaviour problems.

 

Course Summary – Part One

 

Delivered by clinical professionals, this two hour workshop has been written against a backdrop of measures to increase the authority of teachers to discipline pupils and ensure good behaviour. The content of the workshop is complementary to current guidance for schools which emphasises discipline for good behaviour but does not fully take into account the consideration of behaviour as a form of communicating unmet emotional needs. This workshop is based on up to date research emphasising that a focus on mental health issues is essential to understanding, and therefore helping to change, some of the challenging behaviours of young people.

 

Course Summary – Part Two

 

The second two hour workshop is tailored to each individual setting and provides an opportunity to consult with YMCA Trinity Group and consider the practical strategies that your setting would like to explore in greater detail.
