reframing and responding to behaviour


Presented by Jo Turner


Wednesday 14th June 9.30-12 Face-to-face at the RTLB meeting room, Royal Oak Primary School.


This session will focus on recognising escalating behaviours and differentiating the adult's response accordingly. 

The principles that apply to any class level are aimed to de-escalate student behaviour and alleviate stress for all involved.

Some new tips for changing up what we adults do….to get a different response! 



Presented by Jo Turner and Barbara Hannant



Wednesday 24th May, whole day Face-to-Face workshop 9.30am-2.30pm at the RTLB meeting room, Royal Oak Primary School.

Places are limited so be in quick.

Jo Turner and Barb Hannant will work with participants to unpack behaviours, identify patterns and isolate triggers so that effective strategies can be timed to prevent escalation of behaviours. 


Jo and Barb will unpack and develop escalation and de-escalation behaviour profiles with participants to reframe behaviour from the viewpoint of an adult and a young person. Participants will leave with the ability to complete escalation profiles for the adults to use to support a young person and to be able to work with the young person to complete a de-escalation profile for themselves. 


Presented by Michelle Grey-Lamont
