Strategies for Challenging Behaviour Courses

Supporting Kids Who Experience Anxiety 

This virtual training is designed to support staff working with school-aged children who experience anxiety.

In this session we look at:

  • How worry and anxiety are normal
  • How flexibility is key
  • What anxiety loves
  • How your role-modeling can positively impact a child’s well-being
  • What exercises and activities can help manage anxiety


Proactive Strategies 

This virtual training focuses on how we can be pro-active and integrate rapport, guidelines & boundaries, and be flexible in our program design and our interactions.


Integrating Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) into Practice

This virtual training focuses on the five aspects of Social-Emotional Learning and how they can positively impact practice. We look at how self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making can enrich our lives and those of the youth we support.


The Big 3 

This virtual training looks at how it’s the everyday things in programming that can wear us down. That is, not listening, not participating, and rude or disrespectful behavior. We look at how to strengthen listening and participation, in addition to dealing with rude behavior.


What's up with Bullying? 

This virtual training looks at bullying as a societal issue and a learned skill. We look at how bullying is connected with power and is not the same as conflict. Activities to increase social cohesion are discussed.
