Behavior Series for Educators and Parents

  • Behavior as a Communication Tool
    • This day-long workshop is customized for parents or teachers. It is an activity based session full of ideas and strategies that will equip the adults to help their children convey their needs in an appropriate manner. This workshop helps adults see how behaviors are a language that children use to communicate their feelings or needs. It helps parents and teachers understand the backstory behind any behavior. Parents and teachers will then be able to address it using a constructive approach.
  • Classroom Management
    • Classroom management is traditionally a difficult area for teachers teaching heterogeneous classes, or for new teachers having a sink-or-swim experience. This workshop equips teachers with tools and skills necessary to create a meaningful and successful learning environment for all children.
  • Mindfulness
    • To restore a sense of calm and positively balance their chaotic and hectic lives, teachers will appreciate a day-long or 2-day mindfulness session. This workshop helps teachers reduce stress and anxiety, strengthen attention and focus, better resolve their inner conflicts, develop compassion towards themselves and students, and create a sense of physical, social and emotional well-being in their classrooms.
  • Growth versus Fixed Mindset
    • This new area of research has brought to the forefront the idea that people who persistently grow and improve their basic core abilities over a period of time will develop a deep love of learning and resilience that is essential for any accomplishment. Individuals who believe that their skills are set in stone, or fixed, react differently to setbacks, and do not rise to their potential. According to this theory, we need to focus on the person’s efforts and journey, rather than the end goal. This workshop will help adults to develop their own growth mindset, and to set up an environment in which their children or students can also adopt a similar growth mindset.
