OVERVIEW

In many cases when a learner is afraid to do something it's because of lack of understanding of the task, lack of confidence in their abilities and lack of control over the learning situation. This webinar will focus  on ways to increase clarity of instructions, increase confidence and increase control. Examples will include learners overcoming fears of doing specific behaviours and in one example, overcoming fear of dogs (after a severe dog bite). We won't be talking about irrational fears or phobias.

This will be a practical webinar with video examples and discussion of specific tag points and strategies.
