School Social Worker & Behaviour Education Consultant
Loving our Students on Purpose - Your pathway to connected classroom cultures begins today! Bernii has been working in the field of education since 2002. She has a master’s qualification in Social Work and a Graduate Certificate in Neuropsychotherapy which complements her undergraduate study, Bachelor of Human Services/Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice (majoring in youth and family justice). Bernii is a Loving on Purpose Trainer as well as a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and International Association of Applied Neuroscience (IAAN). Bernii uses her social work and applied neuroscience skills to help education leaders, schools, children, and families to develop their own internally responsible behaviour cultures. These internal cultures promote healthy boundaries, connection, love and respect. As a result, she has witnessed many cultural shifts in the lives of individuals and school communities from fear and control toward love, trust, honour and joyful responsibility. Loving our Students on Purpose is designed to empower individuals and teams in the educational sector with the tools to shift from the exhaustion of reactive, behaviour management to behaviour education which result in teachers enjoying teaching and students joyfully taking responsibility for their own behavioural choices.
