Responding to behaviour

Do you want a different way of responding to behaviour in your classroom? Would you like to understand why children behave as they do, and how we as teachers can work with it all? This course is designed to help you understand where behaviour comes from, how emotional environments and experiences affect our brain growth and development and therefore influence what we do. Explore how adults in the classroom can shape behaviour through responding to what the child needs, rather than reacting to the behaviour. This course is a different way of viewing behaviour; it is a practice not a strategy.’



Understanding the bonds of attachment

Behaviour in the classroom is often a cause of stress and worry. This course aims to help you understand why behaviour causes stress, what the behaviour means for the child and how we work with it all. We examine attachment theory, explore how our brain grows within an emotional environment and through relational experiences. We look at the 4 attachment styles and what they look like in a primary school classroom and examine what helps and who our children need us to be.
