Dealing with Difficult and Challenging Behaviours

Where: The Old Palace, Worcester

This day workshop is limited to 30 places and will enable you to develop skills and understanding of how, particularly as clergy, to deal with difficult and challenging behaviour.  This may be from colleagues, from people within our congregations or within the wider community.  There are some principles and tools that can resource clergy to become more resilient, to have a greater number of options and to grow confidence in addressing behaviours in others.  We will also take a reflective look at our own behaviours and how we may need to change too.

Sandra Cobbin is a freelance trainer, coach and mediator who does a lot of work with churches and dioceses as well as more widely.  She is married to Steve, a Baptist Minister and lives in Coventry.
