Round the Table is a series of intensive mini workshops for ‘people working with people’. We take serious topics and bring them to life with a unique and dynamic approach to learning that focuses on real life situations.
The next workshop “Working With Difficult Behaviours” will give you tips and strategies for managing challenging interpersonal situations with clients and stakeholders. As workers in the human services, health and education sectors, we often find ourselves in situations dealing with challenging behaviours and the emotions behind them, for example people not respecting boundaries, making unrealistic demands, using stand-over tactics, blaming, and emotional blackmail. This workshop will assist you with interpersonal situations that involve face-to-face, phone, text, email, social media or any other method of communication.
In this workshop you will identify strategies to manage difficult situations and behaviours in your workplace, and find out where and how to access additional resources and support for the future if needed. Please note this workshop is not a substitute for individual support or supervision.
