Connection and correction…

A needed  interplay in working with disruptive behaviour

County hall Leuven, Belgium

  • Focus

This year, the EFeCT-congress for professionals in education and youth care will focus on:

  • climate in the classroom
  • neurological base for disruptive behaviour
  • conflict communication
  • involving parents
  • life and learning environment
  • relation educator/caregiver/ teacher-child …

Host city

Leuven as a host city is well chosen for this 11th edition. The city is a strong brand when it comes to cooperation and connection between education and care. Youngsters at the risk of losing connection are supported by a netwerk of different partners in the city.

. Conflict becomes a chance for growth and moments for encountering. Crafting and inspiring life… runs through the congress.
