This course is a 2-day course delving into: what challenges us as leaders in the outdoors; theory on challenging behavior, up-to-date neural research; triggers and causes for challenging behavior, ways of dealing with 'real life' scenarios; de-escalation and formulating / reviewing your own policies e.g. the validity of sanctions and rewards.

This course will help delegates to:
- Further understand factors that lead to challenging behavior
- Meet learners’ needs in the outdoors
- Adopt effective intervention strategies
- Explore some ‘real’ life scenarios and case studies
- review and write policies and procedures relating to behaviour and safeguarding
- Become more confident with supporting groups of young people in the outdoors
- Ensure they have the skills and understanding needed to complete a portfolio of evidence after the training

The course will take place mostly outdoors – with some indoor theory sessions. It will be a mixture of inputs from the trainer, sharing case studies, real life scenarios and practising some de-esclalation techniques. Much will take place around the fire!!

NB there will be the option to take this as an accredited course subject to some additional fees. Speak to the tutor for details.
