Limited Capacity filling up

In this workshop participants will explore and discuss challenging behaviors that our students experience and how we can best support them.

Learning Goals
  1. Understand that behavior is always a form of communication;
  2. Be reflective and aware of your approach to difficult behavior;
  3. See the whole child for who they are, not the behavior they are temporarily exhibiting; and
  4. Continuing the expansion of your competency in working with youth and fostering success.

During the workshop, we will ground ourselves in the importance of empathy in our work and understand how behavior is a tool for communication. You will be challenged to take what you know about positive behavior and be reflective on your personal approaches to behaviors and how they respond to the needs of youth in the moment. We will learn together through interactive activities within an engaging and safe learning environment.

"Take Backs" from this Workshop:
