Happy New Year from Beyond Words,
We are kicking the new year off with some specialist training and you are invited to book your place now. We will provide you with the tools you need to use the Beyond Words books and ethos in your work, specialising in positive behavioural support (PBS).
Training: (PBS) Behaviour That Challenges
‘Feeling Cross And Sorting It Out’
Introduction to Books Beyond Words with a focus on behaviour that challenges
One Day Workshop
Thursday 11th February 2016
9.00am – 3.30pm (Lunch included)
City Lit 1-10 Keeley Street, London WC2B 4BA
This Beyond Words training offers an insight into why the books were developed and the care taken in the production process. The workshop looks at how to support someone to read the pictures in their own way and at their own pace, telling the story they see in the pictures with the potential to empower everyone.
Through understanding the versatility and scope for using the books you will develop confidence to use specific supportive techniques and have an opportunity to try out some ideas. We will look at reading in groups, pairs and one to one.
