BEHAVIOUR: WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO FROM THE BRAIN'S PERSPECTIVE

ALL STAFF IN JUNIOR PRIMARY, PRIMARY, MIDDLE, SECONDARY SCHOOLS AND SPECIAL EDUCATION SETTINGS, INCLUDING LEADERSHIP, SPECIAL EDUCATION AND WELLBEING COORDINATORS, COUNSELLORS, CLASSROOM TEACHERS, AND SCHOOL ASSISTANTS


PRESENTED BY DR DONNA NITSCHKE, TEACHER AND EDUCATIONAL NEUROSCIENTIST

This workshop is intended for all school staff working with students or involved in planning, program or policy development for student wellbeing. The workshop will provide information about: the neuroscience and cognitive psychology underpinning why we do the things we do; behaviour as communication; the difficulties faced when altering behaviour patterns and some helpful strategies; developmental aspects of behaviour, including what changes occur during adolescence.

Learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • a broader understanding of the range of supportive behavioural strategies which can be implemented
  • an appreciation for the important role of motivation in behaviour and behaviour change (intrinsic versus extrinsic)
  • a better ability to differentiate true conscious behavioural choice and ‘unconscious’ learned patterns of response
  • methods to reinforce and support students who are attempting behavioural changes in their school settings
