“Talking to parents about the hard stuff”©

Completing “Talking to parents about the hard stuff”© will contribute 6 hours and 30 minutes of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 3.7.2, 5.5.2, 6.2.2, 7.3.2  from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

 

Sometimes we need to tell parents and carers some things that we know they will find hard to hear, perhaps about their child’s development or behaviour, or the parents approach to parenting or discipline, or perhaps where we have concerns about what might be happening at home.

This NESA endorsed workshop will provide you with learning tools and strategies for responding to situations when you need to have those challenging conversations.

Proficient Teachers will develop a range of strategies that will assist them when they are tasked with providing ‘accidental’ counselling to other teachers, parents/carers who may be experiencing distress, strong emotions and concerns. This course recognises and builds on the strengths that teachers bring to their role but recognised that they have not been formally trained in counselling.
