Fabic Workshop – Changing Behaviour
Friday February 6 from 9am – 4pm // Robina Community Centre, 196 Robina Town Centre Dr, Robina

Whether it be a 3-year-old or an 80-year-old; we all have used unwanted behaviour’s at some point in our life, and will again in the future unless we are supported and taught to respond differently. This workshop provides participants with a greater understanding of the reasons behind their unwanted behaviour’s, and the practical tools to choose differently in the future. The focus of this workshop will be on teaching new positive behaviour’s to respond to life, and preventative strategies as opposed to reactive strategies (only responding once the unwanted behaviour’s have occurred). Use of real case examples and the opportunity to practice learned strategies will allow participants to develop a true understanding that can be integrated into your every-day-life.
