Teaching Students with Challenging Behaviour: As Easy as ABC

Teaching Students with Challenging Behaviour

Even caring classroom communities can experience challenging situations. This workshop presents an evidence-based approach that will help you understand how to “keep your cool” so you can help your students by:

  • delaying your initial reaction & reflecting on how you are feeling (What are your body and mind telling you?)
  • validating students’ feelings
  • reframing the situation
  • taking care of yourself so that you can focus on your students and hold a safe space for them

By thinking about your own triggers and stress reactions ahead of time, you will be able to plan for overload (theirs and yours), create a “power-down” routine and determine how to deal with the issue when everyone is calm. We will also discuss how colleagues can support each other.
