Event Details - Tough Conversations with Students | Sydney
|Title:||Tough Conversations with Students | Sydney|
|Type of Activity:||Other|
|Objective of Course / Workshop:||
Psychologist and former teacher, Michael Hawton and his team, present Tough Conversations with Students. A practical workshop for modern Australian teachers, student advisors and department heads on overcoming the challenges of engaging with adolescents to manage their challenging or uncooperative behaviour.
Michael, author of Engaging Adolescents which has sold over 10,000 copies worldwide since May 2017, shares his formula for building communication skills and clear boundaries.
This workshop provides the practical elements and skills for having tricky-to-hold, but necessary, conversations with young people. Student advisors and teachers will walk away with a renewed sense of confidence about the role they can play in teenagers’ lives, without conversations morphing into arguments or the student withdrawing.
Attendees will see video examples of both poorly conducted conversations and, by contrast, more effective conversations using a semi-rehearsed script. This course tackles the best strategies to make a positive difference in teenagers’ lives.
Expected learning outcomes:
Please note that this is not a train-the-trainer course and it is not designed for the subsequent on-training of other workers back at your workplace. Participants will sign a training agreement to this effect on the day of training.
