Relate, Rupture, Repair - Reframing Behaviour Management

Professional development (PD) New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 26 February 2024
Notice reference #: 1HAfRF

As human beings, we often suffer from a fear of getting things ‘wrong’, messing up, making mistakes. We strive for perfection, wanting to be a model colleague, the best practitioner, the perfect parent. And nowhere is this truer than in our relationships: we so desperately want to get it right for ourselves and those we care about. And yet, the reality is that relationships are a messy business where mistakes are inevitable.

The good news is that research shows that in any relationship the ‘mistakes’ – the moments of disconnection – matter far less than how and whether we can find our way back into connection with one another. In fact, when skilfully done, such repairs to the relationship actually serve to strengthen the bonds of the attachment. It is repairs that build trust.

This course will look at reframing the way we think about 'mistakes' and how we can support all children to learn from these and change the neurological pathways for each individual child. It looks at strategies that will support children's growing brains and reframe the way we look at behaviour patterns. 

This course covers neuroscience, child development and attachment theories and focuses on what support we can give our children to teach them to navigate a world that is constantly changing, growing and establishing new ways to discover just how amazing 'human connection' is.
