In Autumn 2014 Jerome attended an excellent training course in the Lake District entitled "Managing Challenging Behaviour in the Outdoors".
The course was attended by a range of outdoor practitioners covering every age range and from around the UK.
We spent time understanding the physiological and psychological patterms and context of behaviour in children and adults. Armed with this understanding we examined different real-life scenarios through discussion and role-play whilst applying different strategies. It was a fascinating process that made all involved really examine their own teaching practice, and better understanding the processes at work when behaviour is challenging.
Many thanks to Lily Horseman of Kindling Play & Training for setting up the course, and to John Cree of Bishop's Wood for delivering such a fascinating and engaging few days.
