Course Content

This can be introduced in a twilight, half day or even a full day workshop with individualised coaching. We will provide background context for this approach and will directly model the process with real live issues facing participants. So bring your most challenging concerns to this training.

The course answers the questions:

  • What to when you are stuck
  • Can we find an alternative to permanent exclusion or special unit or school placement?
  • Struggling with a child for whom praise is ineffective?
  • Feeling isolated in your responses to a child’s needs?
  • Worried about where your instinctive reactions are leading you?
  • Cannot seem to get any consensus view of a young person’s behaviour/needs amongst all the family and professionals involved – is everyone pulling in different directions?

We will cover:

  • Setting the tone
  • Background and detailed teaching of process
  • Inclusion values underpinning this work
  • Graphic and process facilitation skills
  • Processes modelled and opportunities to try process out with coaching
  • Practical setting up of insights and solutions circles
  • Lessons learned
