This is a 3 day OCN-WMR accredited course worth 3 credits.
Delivered by Jon Cree (chair of the Forest School Association) and Lily Horseman (kindling)

We will delve into:

  • what challenges us as leaders in the outdoors;
  • theory on challenging behaviour;
  • up-to-date neural research;
  • triggers and causes for challenging behaviour;
  • ways of dealing with ‘real life’ scenarios;
  • de-escalation and formulating/reviewing your own policies, including looking at the validity of sanctions and rewards.

As this is an OCN Level 3 course worth 3 credits it will require participants to reflect on their own practice and write up a workbook after the course which we estimate would take approx 8 hours work.

It is suitable for people who have trained as Forest School practitioners or who work in the outdoors.

“This course has really helped me re-appraise the way I work with some of our students and has actually given me new strategies for working with challenges that have worked!” ~ participant from February 2011 course
