Communicating With Words And Not Unwanted Behaviour

A workshop for parents, carers, teachers and anybody interested in learning and deepening their work or involvement with a person to use effective communication with words or an alternative form of communication, such as pointing to pictures, to support their participation in life.

As all behaviour is a form of communication, the focus will be on building skills to identify what unwanted behaviours are being used to communicate how a person is experiencing life. The next step will be to support attendees to work with the person to help them communicate verbally, or via an alternative means of communication, rather than resorting to their unwanted behaviours. 

This program consists of four sessions over two days. The first day is a six-hour workshop presented as three sessions where you will learn and deepen the foundational tools when working with a person who transitions from using their unwanted behaviours to communicating using words, or an alternative means of communication. Day 1 will include presentations, activities and group discussion.  

Following the initial workshop, a fourth session will be held on Day 2 four weeks later, so participants get the opportunity to refine their application of the techniques presented on Day 1 and further expand and deepen on any topics as requested.
