What's in the Course?

In this course you will be introduced to the founding aspects of The Body Life Skills Program.

Sixteen overarching principles are covered that support lasting behaviour change. With this foundation we explore how the body experiences life through behaviours, words, thoughts, and feelings.

We bring simplicity to commonly encountered situations, breaking them down into Fabic’s termed ‘pictures and smashed pictures’, ‘historic, current & future life’ as well as answering the question ‘who sank the boat?’

With this understanding of our body and how it responds or reacts to life, we can get an insight into what skills are required to move through unwanted behaviour to experience lasting behaviour change.

Fabic’s renowned Behaviour / Anxiety Scale and I Choose Chart are also explained in detail as empowering resources to accelerate understanding and changing our own behaviour or supporting those around us to move past unwanted behaviours.

This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in changing, or supporting someone to change unwanted behaviour in a sustainable, lasting way.

Who are our courses for?

In short... everyone!

Our behaviour change courses for Parents, Educators, Mental Health Workers, Children and Teens are delivered in simple, everyday language and provide powerful insights into the art of understanding and changing behaviour.

Parents & Guardians

Learn how to best support the children and teens in your care. While many behavioural management courses for parents tend to focus on short-term fixes in the management of behaviours we bring a focus to lasting behaviour change.

Mental Health Workers

Understand the science behind lasting behaviour change. Our behaviour support courses online can assist you to broaden your understanding of your clients and their particular behaviours.

Children & Teenagers

Simple to understand and practical to apply, Tanya's Behavioural therapy courses can support young people to feel more confident, develop and improve social skills and feel more independent and equipped as they navigate the 'classroom of life'.

Teachers & Educators

FABICs Behavioural therapy courses are perfect for educators who recognise the benefits for schools and students in integrating lasting behaviour change practices. FABIC will also soon release Autism courses for teachers online. Subscribe to learn more.

Life Changing

KW, 29, Counsellor

The Body Life Skills program has not only supported me in the clinical application of my work but also in my personal life as a parent and as a human being. I have a much deeper understanding that I can bring to myself, my children and my clients. I can not recommend this life changing program enough.

Great Program for Schools

HB, Lismore, NSW

I studied the Body Life Skills Program to inform my work with school age children. Not only has it been brilliant to support students to make lasting behaviour change, it has also been invaluable in my own life with family and all relationships.
Thanks Tanya!

Simple steps for lasting behaviour change

JF, Brisbane

From my first introduction to the BLS program which was as an audience member watching Tanya present on the topic of anxiety, I was impressed with the whole concept, including its practical application. Embracing the program both in my own life and in my work with clients, I’ve experienced first hand how being consistent with the easy to understand steps brings about long lasting change in ingrained behaviours.

FAQ

  • What are behaviour management courses and how do Fabic's courses differ?

    Behaviour management courses generally focus on current incidents and the behaviours that are triggered as a result. The management of behaviour can be necessary as a short-term solution but does not provide the scope that can support a person to feel equipped when varied challenging circumstances arise in their day-to-day life. The Body Life Skills approach, developed by Tanya Curtis using an evidence-based Functional Behavioural Assessment framework, provides a foundational support to lasting behaviour change. It empowers participants to embrace the life lessons on offer to them rather than seeking relief from the anxiety associated with situations that may trigger them. It takes a pro-active rather than reactive approach.

  • What is the course format, do I have to attend live classes?

    Our courses are self-paced so you can watch the pre-recorded videos and work through the study material at your own pace.

  • How many hours of course content is there?

    Always rich in video and visual content, our courses vary in length. The Introduction to Body Life Skills program contains about 1 hour of video content, while other more comprehensive courses could have 10-20 hours worth of video content across 10-20 modules.

  • How long can I access the courses for?

    You will receive access to the course for as long as we continue to offer it. At present we plan to offer the courses indefinitely.

  • Can I purchase the course for my organisation?

    Yes, contact Fabic direct to discuss rates for organisations. Email: study@fabic.com.au

  • Do your courses count towards Professional Development Points?

    Ask your individual professional body as they may be available for PDP's.

  • What if I decide this course is not for me? Can I get a refund?

    Please choose your course with consideration as we cannot offer refunds for change of mind. See the course outlines and information or see our extensive free video content to get a sense of the presentation style.
