Learn more about the philosophy and methods that inform Team Teach's approach to behaviour through our live webinars and recorded on-demand content.
Each webinar is led by one of our experts in understanding behaviour and covers a different aspect of the Team Teach methodology.
Join us and webinar host Dave Smallwood, experienced Principal Team-Teach trainer and behaviour consultant, as we discuss behaviour that seems to have come out of nowhere, because we haven’t seen the experiences an individual has had before they got to us. This can include sudden explosive outbursts, but also individuals who suddenly become non-responsive and we can’t understand the reasons behind the change.
We will explore how seemingly minor previous experiences before we see an individual can have a cumulative effect, meaning that we may not see the build-up leading to crisis.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
1. How small events, changes to familiar routines, and seemingly insignificant problems can build up having a cumulative impact on the emotions of an individual.
2. Ways we can support an individual through transition points, such as arriving at our settings, giving them opportunities to regulate and share their experiences.
3. What to do when you’re suddenly supporting an individual in crisis to reduce risk and keep everyone safe.
Join experienced Team Teach trainer, Nancy Hooper, as she discusses the importance of a trauma-informed approach and practical ways we can achieve this in our settings.
We’ll unpick what we mean by being ‘trauma-informed’ and explore key principles to help us create trauma-aware support. We’ll also be sharing useful ideas about ways to create, develop, and evaluate our approaches to ensure they are effective.
Team Teach trainer, Nancy Hooper, shares ideas for writing behaviour plans that actually work. She explains why an effective plan should be quick and easy to create and use, how to find what works for your setting, and the essential details every behaviour plan should contain.
This webinar suitable for anyone working with children, young people and vulnerable adults, in education, health and social care settings.
• Common problems we have with individual support plans/ behaviour plans and what stops them from working in our settings.

In this webinar we cut through the complexities of dynamic risk assessment and discuss how to respond to unforeseen emergencies. We know that even the best planning system cannot cover every eventuality and that there are unforeseen or emergency situations in which staff have to think on their feet and may require an emergency response with a dynamic risk assessment.

This webinar is an opportunity to spend time considering how often we think fast and potentially rush into situations with distressed individuals in our care because we feel we need to sort it out there and then.
Sometimes, thinking slowly and having a self awareness level allows us to better support those we provide care to.
This webinar applies to individuals that work within Health & Social Care settings and will provide insight into care for those you support, whether they be adults or children.
