Addressing Challenging Behaviour
During these times where the global pandemic regarding COVID-19 can have a massive influence on student learning, wellbeing and health, it can be especially challenging as a UM teaching staff member to support students that may be in need. Therefore EDLAB is able to offer interesting workshops designed and given by the UM Psychologists and UM Wellbeing Movement that may support UM teaching staff in fostering student wellbeing in these challenging times. One of these workshops is “Addressing Challenging Behaviour”:
Addressing challenging behaviour
Wednesday 8 December 2021: 09.30-11.30
Trainer: Tessa Vanheeswijck (UM Psychologist)
In this interactive session staff members discuss and learn how they can recognize and manage situations in which students display challenging behavior and/or mental health problems.
At the end of this session, you will be able to:
◊ Detect signals that indicate a personal or psychological problem that might influence students’ study progress, including more alarming signals
◊ Feel more confident about what you can do (seek connection, offering first help, refer to the right care, ).
◊ Approach a student and engage in a conversation using roadmaps and techniques.
◊ Recognize pitfalls and challenges.
◊ Respect your own boundaries.
Instructional methods: lecture, group discussion; quiz; role play; reflection
Whether you are active as a tutor, course coordinator, mentor, study advisor or you fulfill multiple roles, this workshop can offer everyone new insights into challenging behavior among students.

About the trainers
In these challenging times, student mental health has never been more important. Students might not always have the required skills yet to overcome the challenges they are faced with. Therefore the UM Psychologists and the UM Wellbeing Movement strive to make students more resilient and provide them with sufficient means to acquire skills that promote wellbeing during their studies and further in their professional career and life. At UM, there are many initiatives, programmes and plans that can contribute to student wellbeing and at the end of this workshop we will provide you with an introduction and overview of these ventures. Already interested? A broad range of (online) lectures, workshops and training sessions have been developed for students to develop themselves personally and professionally.
