Presented by Philip Butler
As long as we continue to focus our efforts on dealing with and reacting to challenging behaviours, our energy will be consumed. Instead, imagine the opportunities to teach pro-social skills to overcome the need to continue to respond to challenging behaviours. This webinar will explore some big ideas regarding pro-social skill development and explore what it might look like when integrated into an early childhood program. You will leave this webinar armed with a range of new skills to support a more peaceful and engaged early childhood program where intervention, not reaction, is the new normal.
Completing Teaching pro-social skills – prevention rather than reaction to challenging behaviours will contribute one hour of PD that aligns with the NESA (NSW) criteria for Elective PD and addresses:
The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers: APTS 4: Create and maintain supportive and safe learning environments
The Early Years Learning Framework Learning Outcomes: Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
The National Quality Standard: QA 5: Relationships with children
