Excellent practical strategies to use with a variety of steps and structures were presented at the Conscious Classroom Management Training workshop. The preventative strategies and what to say “communication script” were most useful.

A most excellent and productive workshop that gave me a new outlook towards classroom management.

Hi Rocky,I Have used your techniques twice already and it was FABULOUS! (obviously not seemless – more practise needed) but i had direction and focus and purpose and just a really positive vibe in both conversations. Love it. Thanks heaps.
Kelly, Jane and I attended the March Accidental Counsellor Training and have been following your techniques and it has made such an impact on our new Pastoral Care Centre.
We have had many positive comments from students, teachers and parents, with parents calling us to ask us to help their child. We feel like we now have a solid philosophy to inform our decisions and a very clear vision of how we can best help our students. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experience with us….. don’t think we would still be coping without your invaluable guidance.
Orana Steiner School, Canberra
As Deputy Principal of a large primary school, I am often faced with situations where I need to provide guidance and support for students.
Having recently completed the course, I have already used many of the strategies back at school and now feel more confident and well-equipped to deal with student issues.
The course was practical, action-packed and opened my mind to the many ways we can speak with and support students. I now feel better-equipped to manage the “difficult conversations” when my school counsellor isn’t on site. The added bonus is that many of the strategies will prove effective in my personal life as well.
Thanks Rocky! I will definitely be recommending the course to my staff.

I would like to take a moment to tell you what a great experience I had at your workshop. I have been a teacher for 19 years and have participated in sessions such as BoysTalk, and completed units on Interpersonal Relationships at Uni. I found your workshop to be informative, challenging (in a good way), and most importantly it contained skills that are immediately useful. I found myself using some of the techniques covered in the following week with great success.
When I got to work on Monday I immediately recommended you to the schools’ Executive Leaders as something to be considered for our staff PD. Whilst it may not suit everyone (as not everyone is comfortable being a counsellor), your workshop would be an invaluable experience for anyone interested in developing their skills as a counsellor, either as a career pathway or as an ‘accidental’ counsellor.

The Conscious Classroom Management training covered many valuable aspects of classroom management. Good reinforcement of certain things I’m already implementing and it also provided useful strategies to utilise.
