· October 21, 2022

Nick Dux is an education-based mental health expert with 17 years of experience and a degree in human communication. He is the creator of the transformative communication approach and author of the recently published book “It’s All Narrative”.

He believes that if we transform the inner voice of a child, we will transform their Resilience, and subsequently, their behaviour and outcomes will change for the better.

Nick has seen first-hand how his own inner voice has scuppered his experiences, stifled potential and hampered health. Thankfully, Nick has adopted the daily disciplines of self-development to transform his own inner voice and draws on these experiences to further inform his professional practice.

His book – ‘It’s All Narrative’ – is so titled because it is the narrative (or story) we tell ourselves about ourselves and the world around us, that governs our levels of Resilience and, ultimately, our outcomes.

In this session, Nick shares powerful strategies for transforming children’s inner voice and resilience through a proactive approach he calls “superpower language” and a reactive approach called “empathy and empowerment”. He explains how a child’s inner narrative directly impacts their behavior and outcomes, and provides practical techniques that early years professionals can use to help children develop a more positive and empowered inner voice.

In this session you’ll:

  • Understand what the “inner voice” is and how it governs children’s behaviour and potential
  • Learn about “superpower language” – a proactive approach to making children more aware of their strengths
  • Discover the “empathy and empowerment” technique for responding to challenging behaviours
  • Hear real-life examples of transformative communication in action and the impact it can have
  • Get tips for using transformative communication to support your own wellbeing as an educator
