MENTOR FOR TEAMS,
INDIVIDUALS AND STUDENTS
Mentoring is a service for anyone wanting to support lasting behaviour change for another person. This can be for individuals or small groups of people, whether at home, in the playground or in relationships as well as in workplaces, organisations and government agencies, in schools or in the community.
Tanya knows that designing, implementing, evaluating and modifying lasting behaviour change programs can at times feel overwhelming. But often it is just a small loophole requiring some minor tweaking to make what has already been developed go from ineffective to effective. Tanya has both the expertise and objectivity to see what is really going on and, more importantly, explain it in simple everyday language.
A MENTORING PROGRAM WITH TANYA
A mentoring program with Tanya Curtis is designed to support the implementation of the Fabic behaviour methodology, the 3-step program called Body Life Skills which is based on understanding and changing behaviour in a client’s natural environment – wherever that may be.
Tanya’s job is to make herself redundant and thus, she sets out to equip staff/parents/carers/next of kin/colleagues and supervisors with all the skills needed to implement successful and lasting behaviour change in an identified situation. They in turn can then bring the confidence and consistency needed as well as using those same skills in any other cases where unwanted or non-preferred behaviour is occurring.
As a student mentor, Tanya supports those who are studying in the fields of Behaviour, Disability Counselling and Mental Health to develop the required skills and tools for their personal and professional lives.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Tan has been attending a fortnightly staff meeting via Skype to support us to case manage our students with difficult behaviour. It has been great to have her part of the team so we are able to review regularly our strategies and change them quickly when not working. Our behaviour incidents with our initial child reduced dramatically but we have also noticed our school suspensions have reduced.”
