You asked for it Melbourne, you're getting it. ESRE 2016 is coming to town.
Behaviour Management ; Leading behaviour change in education and care
We have thrown together an awesome conference experience in Melbourne for you! Dr. Louise Porter, Louise Dorrat and Sandi Phoenix will be supporting you in rethinking "behaviour management".
Here's a bit about our presenters:
Dr. Louise Porter is passionate about safeguarding children's self-esteem, promoting their social skills, and supporting their resilience in the face of the challenges that life often raises. Dr. Porter works to teach children to behave considerately, being mindful of how their behaviour affects others, rather than what consequences it may earn them. Dr. Porter is an author and has spoken extensively throughout Australia and internationally.
Louise Dorrat has extensive experience managing Early Year's services including Inclusion Support. Louise currently teaches at Deakin in the Bachelor Early Childhood Education - IKE program (Institute of Koorie Education). Louise's background in drama, song and dance have resulted in the release of a music DVD called You Can Do Music which shows educators how to incorporate simple musical experiences into their programs (available at Gowrie Victoria). She is the author of two Family Day Care business manuals and was involved in the set up of the Westgarth Bush Kinder and was part of the team of educators until the end of 2012. Louise is a sought after key note speaker and her energetic workshops have taken her around Australia.
Sandi (not Louise) Phoenix is the founding company director and Principal Facilitator at Phoenix Support for Educators.
Sandi’s coaching and consultancy style comes from a strengths based perspective and is informed by a comprehensive understanding of the National Quality Framework and underpinning theory. Sandi takes a positive approach to guiding expected behavioural choices within inclusive learning environments, following vast experience working with children with disabilities and children who display complex behaviours. Sandi is highly regarded nationwide as a speaker, coach, mentor and Professional Development facilitator for the education and care sector.
