Positive Approaches to Managing Challenging Behaviours

Go Back

Event Highlight

An online course for music facilitators wanting to consider how they manage challenging behaviours through positive approaches.

We all play a part in relationships. This course will help you to interact with people in ways that can promote positive behaviours, and explore the dynamic that you bring to the relationship.

It will help you to identify your own default approaches and assess how useful they are in your interactions with others. You will also be introduced to techniques that promote positive interactions and explore how you can embed them in your own practice.

Delivered by Lesley Wood of Ubiquitous Arts, the course will be spread across two evenings (Tue 20 and Thu 22 Apr, 6-8pm). You’ll gain:

  • An understanding of behavioural issues, possible causes and ways in which we can respond
  • An understanding of the role of the facilitator in impacting behaviour
  • Access to a supportive environment to share concerns and help you overcome challenges in facilitation
  • Strategies to use in your own work that can transform challenging behaviour into positive outcomes

Please note attendance is required at both sessions. There are very limited places available so we recommend booking in advance.

If the cost presents a barrier to you attending, please do get in touch. We’re keen to ensure that these workshops are accessible to all.
