About this course
Supporting children and young people to understand why they might behave as a reaction to a situation is the first step in the them being able to change their reactions and find more socially acceptable ways of behaving. As part of the Thrive Licensed Practitioner course you will have been introduced to the concept of understanding that behaviour is the communication of unmet need. We compassionately use the strategy of Shining The Light to help children and young people deepen their awareness of their own hooks and triggers leading to them develop different strategies when they find themselves in situations they find difficult to manage.
This two-hour webinar will deepen licensed practitioners’ understanding and skills in using Shining the Light, together with their capacity to support the wider staff teams to work with children and young people to use this hugely effective strategy. You will observe film footage demonstrating the techniques and discover some helpful ways to respond to the children and young people. As a Licensed Practitioner you are the point of expertise in school and can often be called upon to offer advice and guidance.
You will come away from this webinar with:
• a deeper insight into the strategy of Shining the Light
• an understanding of how and why Shining the Light can be used across your setting to aid improvements in behaviour
• enhanced resources and techniques to draw on that you can share with the wider staff
• a greater awareness of your own needs and resources
