Challenging Behaviour:

Why it Happens & What to Do

Tuesday 21st May 9.15am-12noon

Course Leaders: Jane Bannington and Tanya Pyburn


Course details

This course considers reasons for challenging behaviour and suggests a wide range of practical approaches that can be used to support children throughout the school day. The course will explore what we mean by behaviour that challenges and how this links to communication. We will discuss possible triggers for a change in behaviour, including the impact of transition and change, both during the day, across the year groups and when moving settings, emotional upheaval at home and puberty. Strategies adults in school can implement to support children and young people in managing their behaviour appropriately will be shared including the benefits of solution focussed planning. Key elements of the course include:

  • Behaviour as communication

  • How to identify triggers in school

  • Recording behaviour and planning risk assessments

  • Positive behaviour support strategies

  • Calming techniques and sensitive attuning of need


Cost: £50 per delegate, including refreshments.
