From Chaos to Co-operation Using Relationships to foster Co-operation
March 14th (7pm)
Hayley Rice - Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist
This workshop will begin with an introduction to interpersonal neurobiology and the science behind relationships- how we are wired for relationship, why we work best when we feel connected and the fundamental need we have for belonging.
It will then describe the benefits of using relationship to foster co- operation in the primary school classroom. Clear examples of how relationships impact on co-operation will be given and linked to research.
Next the challenges to fostering relationships in the classroom will be discussed and the facilitator will trouble shoot perceived limitations.
Following this, the facilitator will outline a number of quick, easy and inexpensive ways that teachers can build relationships, connection and co- operation with young children. These will be playful, interactive and child- centred.
Opportunity for questions and answers will be provided.
Finally, a list of further resources for teachers will be given.
