Minimising Meltdowns – Workshop

We all have had those moments in the classroom where we feel that our children are out of control and consequently, we as staff, also feel out of control.

We all have had those moments in the classroom where we feel that our children are out of control and consequently, we as staff, also feel out of control. Believe me, I have been there. But what if we started to let our panic subside and see beyond the meltdown? Perhaps if we started seeing what that meltdown might be communicating to us? If we can take a step back and reflect on: what is driving the behaviour, how is it affecting me and my response and how can I plan for this behaviour? We just might be able to minimise meltdowns.

I spend time in this workshop reflecting on challenging behaviour exploring the behaviours that most challenge staff, the stages that happen in crisis, what causes meltdowns and, lastly, what are some practical solutions to managing those behaviours in the classroom? This is a reflective hands-on workshop that focuses on solutions.
