Level 1: Building Cooperative Behaviour in Children 

This Level 1 workshop aims to introduce or refresh ideas for workers in order to support parents / carers to support their children to learn to behave in cooperative ways, so that they enjoy childhood and improve their relationships with adults, friends and siblings. We will also consider the effects of parental stress and how parents / carers can take better care of themselves.

  • What is positive parenting?
  • Parenting styles and children’s temperaments;
  • The Parenting Pyramid;
  • Building co-operative behaviour – the tools of play, effective praise and rewards;
  • Managing parental stress and role-modelling the behaviour we want to see.

Level 2: Managing Children’s Difficult Behaviour Effectively

This Level 2 workshop will focus on limit setting, discipline and punishment and how these tools can be used in judicious ways to supplement the fundamental tools of building co-operative behaviour. There will be a discussion on the use of smacking & promoting positive alternatives. Tools looked include selective ignoring, time out, loss of privileges and appropriate consequences.

Ideas taught come from social learning theory, systemic family therapy and non-violent resistance therapy
