Poster 16: The Classroom of Life

Life is one massive classroom of lessons and offers us a vast array in the areas of family, work and relationship that far exceeds what we can learn in an educational setting, no matter how important those formal lessons are. This presentation will explore the scope of life lessons, from having a difficult conversation and dealing with differing opinions to asking for a pay rise and competitive behaviour. Important is to always acknowledge and honour that skills can never be expected but need to be taught.

We all have pictures of how we expect life to be and how people should be, look, act, think and talk. Smashed pictures occur when our pictures do not happen the way we had imagined them, and they can easily take us from code blue on the FABIC Behaviour/Anxiety Scale all the way to code red. So, rather than trying to control life, let’s explore our pictures and how they obstruct expansion and growth.

Poster 19: How to identify my life lessons

We all have many life lessons, generously provided for us in the classroom of life. The best way to easily identify them is by starting with the body and tracing any heaviness, lack of joy or anxiety back to the pictures and rules we have subscribed to.

Poster 20: How we perceive life

Where does the perception of loss come from? Is it possible that it has its roots in our attachment to the pictures of how life and people should be? And when these pictures get smashed, it is perceived as a loss?

Poster 35: Stop, breathe, squeeze, communicate, skills

When a person goes to code red, orange or yellow on the FABIC Behaviour/Anxiety Scale, it is important to offer an opportunity to de-escalate and communicate what took their body higher than blue in a way that is preferred and wanted rather than using their previous non-preferred or unwanted behaviour.

Skills building is only possible when the body is relatively settled and the original part of life the person found challenging can be addressed.

The use of concrete words is important, especially when it comes to giving instructions. This poster is used for monitoring a person’s voice volume so that the message sent (the instruction) is the same as the message received.

Poster 41: Abstract vs concrete words
When we teach new skills, the likelihood of a person learning and implementing them is greatly increased when we all speak the same language and use concrete words.
