Navigating Challenging Behaviour

Navigating Challenging Behaviour





All behaviour is communication and feelings drive behaviours. This webinar will outline ways in which we can respond to the behaviour, rather than react & focus on our “Use of Self”. It will discuss how to basic brain science, how stress can manifest on the body and give tools & strategies on how WE can help children to have a feeling of safety and trust, so they can thrive in the classroom environment. There will be discussion on Gary Landreth’s A.C.T Model to help to set consistent limits and Dr. Dan Siegel’s “Name it to Tame it”. Debbie will give ideas for supporting regulation, so you can establish a safe learning environment that will help all of the children flourish.

Participants will:

  • acquire knowledge on how the brain works and how we can help children to manage big feelings
  • become aware of the importance of coregulation and how sharing our calm can help children to manage big feelings
  • become aware of how important regulation is, in the classroom environment and learn new ways of supporting regulation for children.
