Workshop Description

Low-cost weekend training.

This is a live stream event, please check our system requirements prior to registering.

For those who work with youth, managing challenging behaviors that interfere with development, learning, or success can be both frustrating and exhausting. This workshop will review challenging behaviors related to aggression, non-compliance, and attention-seeking, and will provide a framework for intervening with these behaviors. Participants will analyze the effectiveness of their current approach and develop insights into what is happening when attempts at intervention do not work. Guidelines for structuring interactions for positive outcomes will be given, and a coaching model to bring out the best in youth who exhibit challenging behavior will be provided. Please note: This workshop does not provide training for clinical therapy or review clinical conditions that may lead to challenging behaviors.

Portrait of Heather Woodward, MSW, RSW

Heather holds a Master of Social work degree, is a Registered Social Worker and has been working in the field for close to 20 years. She has spent much of her time working directly with children, youth, and families. Specifically, Heather’s passion is working with youth of all genders (ages 14-24) that have been impacted by violence, sometimes with gang involvements, all forms of trauma (mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual), addictions, mental health, and with individuals living with a FASD. She believes that even in the thick of trauma and/or crisis, people can use relationships and laughter to work through these critical moments. Heather values the lives and the stories of all the people whom she has the honor of meeting and walking with on their life path. She is an energetic and engaging facilitator who strives to find ways to build relationships and incorporate 'laughter' into the work she does families and communities.
