Behaviour Management: Is children’s behaviour ours to manage?
This presentation will evoke critical reflection and deep thinking around traditional "Behaviour Management" practices. Educators will be challenged to re-think and re-frame the role of educators in supporting children's emerging social competence.
This is an engaging session utilising story and metaphor to explain theoretical frameworks around basic human life needs as motivators for human behaviour. Educators will be inspired to think differently about power over approaches to managing children’s behaviour. The session will provide educators with a framework - The Phoenix Cups - that will allow them to make more effective decisions about supporting children’s behavioural learning.
* Discuss children’s behaviour in the contemporary education and care setting
* Explore the reasons and functions that drive children’s behaviour as developing human beings using an analogy about filling cups based on the theoretical frameworks of Maslow and Glasser
