Defusing Conflict in Schools for School Leaders
27th April 2017 – 10.0am to 4.0pm (lunch included)
London (near London Bridge)
Join other school leaders to share experiences and learn new defusing techniques from a Hostage Negotiator which can be deployed back in your school.
The training will guide you through a methodical approach for safely defusing conflict (have a look at the Dfuse approach here) and show you how different influencing techniques can lead to the outcome you want from a range of challenging situations. This training is ideal for Heads of Department, Phase Leaders and Senior Leadership, those who have responsibility for behaviour within the school and those who are often called into situations that are too challenging for others to manage.
Each attendee will receive a copy of the Defusing in Schools CPD workshop toolkit (sold separately for £60) which can be used in school to facilitate defusing skills workshops with colleagues.
The course is limited to a small group where everyone will have the opportunity to share their experiences and receive tailored support and advice from the Hostage Negotiator.
Over the last 10 years Dfuse has worked with schools and organisations, including Teaching Leaders, to apply the skills of its experts to the conflict situations found in schools. Dfuse can help school leaders to challenge disruptive behaviour and defuse aggression. With teams defusing skills can be applied to manage disagreements between colleagues or influence individuals to adopt new approaches. Dfuse training can also help schools leaders to manage community conflicts which have arrived at the school gate – returning ex-students, parking arguments, low level crime and antisocial behaviour or aggressive intruders seeking access to school premises.
This is what one Head Teacher said after Dfuse delivered training to all staff in their school:
“After a day for all staff with a Dfuse Hostage Negotiator there is a new air of confidence around the school for dealing with challenging behaviour. The training also helped us to identify system improvements to avoid potential flashpoints. We are using the Defusing Conflict in School toolkit in team meetings to continue to develop our skills and reinforce our shared approach for defusing.”
