This series of workshop is designed and delivered in partnership with Tony Leong (MSoC Professional Counselling) of 3-Sparks Pte Ltd.
We aim to equip teachers with pivotal skills and knowledge in strengthening Teacher-Student Relationship via research based and tested strategies. In addition, these workshops also provide additional tools to increase teacher ability to guide students in improving their behaviours through strengthening resilience and Social Emotional Competencies.
Improving Teacher-Student Relationships
Studies have shown that it is paramount to develop positive relationships between teachers and students as they build significant, and long-lasting impact on students’ lives, both academically and socially. This workshop deepen two main competencies:
Recognise the beliefs behind student’s behaviours
Build engagement through relational strategies
Building Emotional Resilience
Resilience is important for students’ mental health. Students with greater resilience are better able to manage stress, which is a common response to difficult events. When students’ emotional resilience increased, competencies in connectedness, motivation and emotion regulation follow suit.
Facilitate strengths-based conversations
Demonstrate emotion regulation strategies
Positive Discipline in the Classroom
Positive Discipline in the Classroom is aimed at developing mutually respectful relationships. Positive Discipline teaches adults to employ kindness and firmness at the same time, and is neither punitive nor permissive which aims to enhance the teacher-student relationship.
Implement positive discipline approach in the classroom
Employ motivational strategies in a positive classroom
