Mindful and Compassionate Communication in the Classroom

This training is suitable for all teachers, particularly those who have a particular interest in bringing mindfulness practices into the classroom to improve the quality of teaching, learning and the cultural context in which this occurs.  It will also be beneficial for colleagues in the early phases of their career to help them to manage the challenges that teaching can present.

Mindful Compassionate Communication’ is a process which brings greater awareness and new tools to how we speak, how we receive others, and how we listen.

The two-day course aims to support teachers in handling classroom communications calmly, and defusing crises confidently so that everyone’s needs – teachers and pupils – can be respected and valued.

The benefits of the training are as follows:

  • Improve expressing & listening skills
  • Understand hidden needs, values & motivations
  • Sift interpretations from observations; & making clear requests
  • Handle anger, blame or tension skilfully & professionally
  • Clarify the cause of conflicts & how to resolve them
  • Deal with demands, while standing one's own ground
  • How to say No (or hear No) without offending
  • Feel empowered – avoiding ‘power over' or 'power under' ways of operating.
  • Be more alert to verbal, non-verbal & written cues
