Challenging Behaviour Outdoors £180 +VAT and booking fee

The 2 day course is in response to popular demand from teachers, rangers and other educators who believe in the benefits of engaging and working with reluctant learners of any age in the outdoors. Jon Cree is an inspirational tutor who has been working with youth groups and young people with specific needs, in the outdoors for 30 years. He will facilitate sessions that involve ‘real life’ scenarios, some outdoor exercises, as well as supportive and creative chats around the fire.

We will share our experiences, discuss ideas and look at practical strategies including:

What is challenging behaviour? What do young people's behaviours communicate?

Behavioural theories and how these relate to our own settings

Neural development—the most recent research and how this affects behaviour

Causes of certain behaviours—models for working with behaviour—the 3C’s, non violent communication and the pros and cons of rewards and sanctions

What needs does the outdoors cater for?

Ways of working with ‘behaviours’ - interventions and de-escalation’ in the outdoors

Motivating our learners

Transferring behavioural strategies from the outdoors to everyday life in educational settings and home

Looking after ourselves

"The leader was excellent, knowledgable, calm and understanding. I felt safe to be open to new information and experiences...this was both inspirational and practical, giving very real and new ways of working with behaviour outdoors" Past participant

Based at Skelton Grange Environment Centre in Leeds, where thousands of children enjoy outdoor learning and play each year in woodland, meadow & pond settings. Led by Jon Cree, internationally acclaimed environmental and earth educator and trainer with a passion for helping others ‘get in touch’ with the natural world through dynamic learning programmes and hands-on learning experiences.

We will sustain you with tea & coffee, and some very gorgeous cake from That Old Chestnut, a friendly Leeds-based bakery that uses organic ingredients 100% free from animal products. Please bring a packed lunch with you - local options are limited.

Skelton Grange is a beautiful, light eco-building set in a nature reserve with ponds, meadows, woodland, vegetable garden & fruit orchard. If the weather is inviting, you are very welcome to enjoy your lunch or cup of tea outdoors and wander...

All proceeds will go to support the great charitable work of The Conservation Volunteers at Skelton Grange Environment Centre, which you can read more about on our website. You can also view other workshops & events we are planning!
