Children's Behaviour Masterclass
Touring capital cities 2018
Dr Louise Porter and Sandi Phoenix will be supporting you in rethinking behaviour ‘management’.
Join us for a powerful day to re-think and re-frame the role of teachers and educators in supporting children’s emerging social competence. This event will flex your thinking, question your knowing, and change your practice forever.
Session 1: Mastering Behaviour Guidance with Dr. Louise Porter
Louise will suggest how educators can prevent most behavioural disruptions in children by meeting the children's needs. A Q&A session about the implementation of a guidance approach will shed some light on practical strategies.
Session 2: Mastering The Phoenix Cups Framework with Sandi Phoenix
If you're a seasoned Phoenix Cupser, you'll love this session. If you're new to the Phoenix Cups (or need revision) don't worry, we'll catch you up before the day with some exclusive resources and video recording so you come to the day ready to master.
Explore the reasons and functions that drive children’s behaviour as developing human beings using the Phoenix Cups Framework. A Q&A session about the Phoenix Cups and the design of cup-filling strategies will ensure you leave with a cup filling plan to implement straight away.
Session 3: Leading behaviour change in education settings
You’re excited and inspired but how do you pollinate this change to your team? The end of the day will focus on discussion about how you can become change agents to sustain ongoing reflective practice at your service.
Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to be a part of leading behaviour change in education and care.
