Take this course if you want to know how to handle difficult conversations.

- It could be an election result, a sexist comment, a racist remark – these things cannot go continuously unchallenged in a classroom
- as silence is the equivalent to agreeing with whatever has been said.
- Similarly, it may not be so much comment, but an incident that has taken place.
- Maybe a murder or a suicide and the students are talking about it anyway.
- Learn how to take control of these instances. Regain the trust and respect of students by being a moderator, an influencer, someone
- who allows everyone to genuinely have their say, without taking sides or passing judgment, therefore, allowing an issue to be air.
- The course takes about 1 hour to complete but can make all the difference in the teaching environment
