CEBM & PIM collaboration: Counterwill (resistance and opposition)

Date: WEDNESDAY, April 6th, 2022

Time: 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Format: ONLINE - this presentation will use ZOOM, an interface that requires no special applications.

Fees: FREE

DESCRIPTION: Priming attachments when working with multiply challenged students can be difficult. However, this is a key entry point when we want students to follow our cues. When they are not in connection with us, we can see increased counterwill and defenses. How we approach counterwill can have a great impact on how long and how difficult a situation can become. This session will provide insight into the counterwill instinct and look at intervention strategies to help reduce its challenging impact.

As a foundation to making sense of emotions with students who are multiply challenged, participants are asked to view: (1) the recording of the session “Understanding Intellectual Disabilities: Classroom Implications and Beyond” with Psychologist Dr. Anthony Claro, hosted by The Centre PIM on January 14th, 2022.

(2) the recording of the session Emotions are Emotions, presented by CEBM on Feb. 23, 2022. 

These two sessions will provide scaffolding for the presentation on Counterwill.

PRESENTED BY:  Martine Demers and Catherine Korah

For ALL school staff
