Behaviour Management Training for Lunchtime Staff
The training brings to life eleven highly realistic, carefully
researched and entertaining DVD situations involving children
and lunchtime staff, supported by workbook activities and trainer
input. Some scenarios show lunchtime staff who lack the essential
skills needed to deal with volatile children and so exacerbate
the situation by their use of inappropriate behaviour styles.
Other scenes show the opposite.
They enable lunchtime staff to 'discover' and analyse
the behaviours and skills which relate to the handling of conflict
and bad behaviour from children. They will learn how to defuse
conflict and acquire the skills necessary to ensure they do not
cause it themselves, by their mis-handling of the children.
