This 6-day program provides a practical model for looking at both children’s and educator/carer communication in daily interactions. It gives educators and carers a reflective space to see how they interact and examine how to effectively support children’s development and wellbeing.
In the course you will learn to see how children naturally connect and learn to become cooperative. You will see how to make the most of everyday interactions to support cooperative behaviour and build relationships. You will learn to observe children’s play and cooperation skills, and apply the Marte Meo adult supportive communication elements: following, linking, positive leading, cooperation and detailed guidance.
Learning in Marte Meo is video-based. Throughout the training participants will watch videos that highlight supportive communication. From Day 2, participants will be asked to bring video clips from their own setting to view. This will include filming of children and the participant for the purpose of identifying and practising the elements of supportive communication. The clips required are short (1–2 minutes), and participants will be guided step by step in what to film. Participants will receive a Marte Meo Practitioner Certificate awarded through Marte Meo International on completion.
In addition to the 6-day course participants will be offered 2 x 2 hour Practitioner Review and Reflection sessions within six months of the course completion.
This course can also be delivered in your workplace, please enquire for more information.
