Behaviour Management

Behaviour management programs have been a key component of the work of the TLN since we began in 1995. They continue to be an important part of our work and an area teachers tell us they need support in.

A teacher's behaviour management strategies are a reflection of their views around students, how learning occurs, the role of families and more recent understandings around brain development. To portray behaviour management as a set of tricks or as disconnected from wider teaching practice is to understate it's significance.

    • How to identify emotional centred behaviour
    • Helping students identify their own emotions
    • Labelling emotions in a non-confronting way
    • Supporting students to find ways of expressing emotions constructively

    The program will look at:

    Working in schools we meet many people, colleagues, parents, members of the community who can be difficult to deal with. Difficult experiences lead to stress and can prevent us from achieving the best results for our students. Inappropriate conflict in any workplace should be minimised. This program will outline the social and emotional competencies needed to manage difficult people and will explore practical strategies you can use to deal with different types of people in your school environment.

The presenters will show how they have used PBS to undertake this analysis and improve classroom behaviours.

    People who enrol for this workshop, if they have not already done so should also enrol for the companion workshop 'L758 Positive Behaviour Support – identifying the behaviours you want' on Tuesday 31st October. A recording of that workshop will also appear on the TLN website www.tln.org.au

    The program will look at:

    Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a framework for understanding the cause of inappropriate behaviours and how to respond effectively. When faced with challenging behaviours in any learning environment, it is important for the teacher to be able to describe the behaviour they do want in the classroom. The presenter will show how they have used PBS to plan classroom strategies to get the preferred behaviours in their work with students with physical and intellectual disabilities.

    People who enrol for this workshop, if they have not already done so should also enrol for the companion workshop 'L752 Positive behaviour support – analysing the behaviour' on Tuesday 17th October. A recording of that workshop will also appear on the TLN website www.tln.org.au
