Difficult Student Behaviour and
Savvy Ways to deal with it
A training gift from RURAL TRAINING 2012,
Hervey Bay, Queensland
Once upon a time in schools teachers' eye-balled students, demanded their respect, and got it! Although it's different today, it remains tough to escape the institutionalised consciousness we've inherited as teachers, especially in moments when the behaviour of students becomes tricky, challenging or threatening. A quick, programmed punitive styled response is often the first reaction. Yes, it seems imprinted on our DNA, highlighting that the concept to truly promote positive behaviours of students is still a delicately poised concept in Australian education.
This energetic and highly interactive session explores a range of thought-provoking scenarios to explore the goal-directed nature of student behaviour (ill-conceived behaviour, awkward behaviour and misbehaviour). Based on the work of the celebrated individual psychologists, Adler and Driekurs, the presenter examine THE FOUR GOALS OF MISBEHAVIOUR; how to identify them, what they might really be about, the role of relationship and developing clever responses to help young people find pro-social ways to have their social and learning needs met.
As well as having fun, participants will leave with a constructive "behavioural analysis" framework to understand and respond to difficult students (and people) and their behaviours.
