Children's behaviour: rethinking and planning our approach

Cooperative behaviour ECThis workshop explores the understanding that, 'behaviour is a form of communication to meet human needs'. Using the Phoenix Cups framework ©, you will engage in conversations and reflection to rethink your approach. Based on case studies of children, we reframe together to explore the child's perspective, their needs and triggers and how our own practices may be reinforcing their behaviours. The aim of this workshop is to prepare you to support children's wellbeing, with skills and tools to better understand the child's own needs and to respectfully support the child to meet these needs. 

You will leave this workshop inspired and ready to:

  • consider the child's needs/empty cups that may be behind the behaviour
  • use 'Cup filling' strategies
  • consider triggers and reinforcers (especially those that may be related to what we are doing)
  • review the curriculum and reflect on your approach and response strategies to work towards positive, consistent and respectful practice
  • work with your team and in partnership to develop a plan to support a child
