Taming tigers and slowing down devils? Count us in!

It may be an hourly occurrence in the journalism world, but there will be a class next month revealing secrets of working with those with challenging behaviors.

Some people are challenged with following direction, behaving properly, crossing boundaries and are unable to stay within the lines of planned activity.  By the wend of the workday, staff can be found exhausted, unsure of what to do next and discouraged by a lack of success. Taming a group full of tigers and settings down devils is not circus act and not an easy task.

Communication skills and tools, thinking outside of the box, understanding the difference between independence, and dependence and codependence, with activities inside and outside the classroom are all expected.  Expect personal stories and examples of resources that provide perspective for teachers, students’ families, senior staff in the Oval office, and community workers.

The daylong session runs October 14 at the CCRR 10200 8th Street Suite 117. To register, call 250-782-1138 ext. 221.
