Join Dr Christina Reese for her live CPD workshop and discover how to transform your skills!

Event Dates: 11 July 2020

Venue: Kensington, London
 

As a therapist or teacher, you are faced with the challenge of meeting the social and emotional needs of all your students or children you provide care for. This can be challenging enough with typical learners but it is even more difficult with those who have experienced trauma or have mental health challenges. Students who have experienced trauma often present as difficult to engage and display problematic behaviour such as a low frustration tolerance, angry outbursts or difficult social relationships. These behaviours all get in the way of teaching and learning.

 

When a student has experienced trauma, he/she often spends much of the day in fight/flight/freeze mode which limits their capacity to learn. Their outwardly aggressive and irritable behaviours also disrupt the flow in the classroom, requiring your time and attention. Despite the amount of time you invest in behaviour charts or incentives for good behaviour, traditional behavioural approaches to classroom management and a punitive approach to discipline simply are not effective.

Strategies to Reduce Challenging Behavior, Improve Learning Outcomes and Increase Engagement

 

Join Dr. Reese and learn how a trauma-informed approach will greatly reduce challenging behaviour, improve student engagement and increase learning outcomes. Leave this workshop with new strategies, tools and resources to reduce students’ impulsiveness, aggressive behaviours and inattention and increase their focus, attention and compassion. While this positive approach is absolutely essential for students with trauma, it will also greatly benefit each and every student in your classroom or community. Return to your school with:

  • Research-based practices to establish a trauma-informed classroom
  • A plan to develop positive relationships and build trust with your hard-to-reach students
  • Proven techniques for communicating more effectively and collaboratively with challenging students

Cognitive skill-building strategies which incorporate the science of neuroplasticity and the strengths-based perspective of neurodiversity

Objectives:
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
 
  • Analyse the ways in which poverty and mental health contribute to trauma responses thus informing your approach to working with all students.
  • Determine how trauma impacts a child’s development and develop strategies for meeting his or her needs.
  • Explore how exposure to adverse childhood experiences determines the likelihood of developmental trauma and its impact on level of functioning across the lifespan.
  • Establish a collaborative approach to discipline and demonstrate how this fosters intrinsic motivation for behaviour change in the child.
  • Practice techniques to establish positive relationships and build trust with hard-to-reach students thus increasing their social and academic success.
  • Explore mindfulness activities that foster student self-awareness, self-regulation and the ability to focus as it relates to impulsive behavior and attention.
