Behaviour Specialist Webinar Series

Behaviour challenges are a growing epidemic, impacting on the quality of life for individuals, relationships, families, schools, workplaces and all areas of life/society related to and affected by behaviour.

So why are behaviour challenges getting worse? What is really going on? Is it possible our current approaches to behaviour change are NOT working?

In response to this, Behaviour Specialist Tanya Curtis has put together a series of online webinars available for viewing anytime, anywhere by anyone; they get to the heart of these behaviour challenges and explain in simple terms what we mostly do not yet understand.

Although each webinar is associated with a specific topic, each is also jam-packed with so much insight, wisdom and useful tips and understandings that they are not limited on focussing on that one aspect of life. They focus is on all of life, and in this way there is definitely something in every one of them to support us all.

These webinars are AUD$66.00 each and available for purchase either as an audio or online recording from our shop.

Understanding behaviour via the Fabic Body Life Skills program

Learn how to successfully understand and change unwanted behaviour

We all use behaviour all day, every day … we are never not using a behaviour. We all have, had or will have behaviours in our repertoire we would prefer not to use. Further to that, most have attempted to change their own or another person’s non-preferred behaviours at some stage … sometimes successfully, and other times not.

One reason for failed attempts at behaviour change is that the reason for the behaviour has not been addressed … we have not brought understanding.

This webinar will explore in detail the essential behaviour principle that ‘every behaviour is happening for a reason’ … thus for successful behaviour change to occur, we must develop tools to bring understanding to anyone’s unwanted behaviours first. We will introduce the revolutionary Body Life Skills program that, when used effectively, brings understanding to non-preferred behaviours; based on the this understanding lasting behaviour change is then possible. This is a foundational course for all who are serious about behaviour change.

Duration: 1 hour and 37 minutes

Behaviour challenges appear to be forever increasing in today’s world.

Perfectionism … the impacts of perfectionism on our anxiety levels and everyday life

Learn how to nip perfectionism in the bud and hence reduce anxiety in daily life

Perfectionism is described by Tanya Curtis as a hidden epidemic … contributing to people’s anxiety levels worldwide. Have you (or someone you know) ever felt uncomfortable when you receive a correction? Have you avoided doing something in an attempt to dodge a possible critique? And how often do we expect another to do more or be different according to our expectations of them? Perfectionism comes in many different forms and impacts all of us in varying ways. We can impose perfectionism on our self, but also on others.

Perfectionism has been observed to increase anxiety levels for the young, the old and everyone in between; perfectionism impacts on people’s experience in schools, workplaces, relationships and society overall. This webinar brings understanding to what perfectionism is and explores ways of changing our experience with perfectionism, resulting in reduced anxiety and thus ways to lasting behaviour change.

Learn how to truly communicate and understand others in everyday interactions in life

At our core we are all the same in that innately we want to be with other people and have positive interactions with them. However, life experiences are not always positive and our attempts to socialise, play, connect, communicate and have positive interactions with others are not always successful. In fact, what people hope to receive (i.e. acceptance and inclusion) often results in the exact opposite (i.e. exclusion and rejection). This webinar offers practical skills that can be used when supporting our self and others in interactions with other people. The webinar is suitable for those wanting practical means to increase their own positive interactions as well as those who are likewise supporting their children, students, clients, friends, family and colleagues.
