“He started it, Miss!”

“Why you picking on me, Sir?!”


Teachers and education staff, you know these phrases all too well. You hear them on repeat! During lessons, around the school grounds and even when the school day is done.

If you have sleepless nights worrying about a certain class or that one child you’re struggling to connect with, then this webinar is for you!

The truth is, no one wins if you’re frazzled or stressed – neither you nor the pupils. When you’re feeling good, mentally and physically, you’re more likely to be able to gain the confidence of the kids, and cope with challenging behaviour.

So watch now, as we explore how to look after yourself when managing pupil behaviour.

Our fantastic panel of experienced teachers, HR leaders and mental health experts, discuss:

  • coping with the emotional impact of behaviour management
  • strategies for staying mentally well when dealing with challenging behaviour
  • managing expectations and avoiding burnout
  • techniques for switching off and leaving the school day behind

Chaired by Education Support’s Chief Executive, Sinéad Mc Brearty, we're joined on the panel by:

  • Athir Hassan MA BSc ‘The Behaviour Trainer’, Teacher, Author and Classroom/Behaviour Management Coach
  • Dani Compton, Teacher and Mentor
  • Jen Catling, Low-intensity CBT Practitioner

This webinar is a must for all staff in education who interact with students at schools, colleges or universities. Watch now and continue the new academic year with your wellbeing in mind.

"Thank you everyone - definitely will try these strategies to help! It has been a long rut and would be good to finally be out of it!"
