  • 6. Restorative Practices 2-Day Training

    Program: RPDC - Kansas City

    Location: 3 KCRPDC-Union Station (Kansas City, MO) [map]

    Audience: Teachers, Administrators, Counselors, Social Workers, School Psychologists

    Dates: 4/29/2024 to 4/30/2024

    This two-day Basic training in Restorative Practices provides the necessary information for establishing the conditions for developing and nurturing a culture based on high quality relationships among all school community members and positive community building that is trauma-free. This is accomplished by focusing not on rules broken and punitive consequences but rather on the harms done and providing appropriate restorative consequences and the systems that are necessary to repair and support strong relationships among all school community members (students and adults). Working restoratively is a social/relational rather than a behaviorist model. Embracing restorative practices is not a program but rather a way of thinking, being and operating in the day-to-day. The training includes concrete and practical strategies for establishing the appropriate classroom and school-based routines as well as conducting circles and conferences in primary prevention as well as intervention contexts.

    7. Adverse Childhood Experiences - ACEs

    Program: RPDC - Kansas City

    Location: 3 KCRPDC-Union Station (Kansas City, MO) [map]

    Audience: Teachers, Admin, Counselors, Social Workers, School Psychologists

    Dates: 5/1/2024

    Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are the largest public health crisis to be identified in the past thirty years. Traumatic childhood experiences (toxic stress/trauma) impact a child's daily life in the home, in school and the community as they grow. These adversities (injuries) in childhood also impact adult health and wellbeing, often identified as PTSD. Even when children are too young to remember the events (neglect, physical/emotional/sexual abuse, abandonment, violence, etc.), the body never "forgets.” Childhood adversity affects a child's ability to learn and behave in productive ways by changing brain chemistry and architecture thus impacting their ability to learn and behave "normally” in schools and other settings. And, if not appropriately treated, these injuries impact life and health outcomes into adulthood. All too often, children who are experiencing trauma, neglect and abuse in their homes and communities are identified in schools as having "special needs,” such as ADHD, ODD or EDD when in fact what they are experiencing is actually trauma/toxic stress. These life circumstances cause diminished executive functioning abilities, learning difficulties, and/or misbehavior.

    Educators, as well as all other adults, need to be keenly aware of this body of research and practical school- home- and community-based remedies in order to mitigate the impact of toxic stress (ACEs) on successful child cognitive and emotional development, including impulsivity, learning difficulties and misbehavior, not to mention diminished physical health outcomes in adulthood. In this workshop, the critically important information about this life- and practice-changing body of research, including ACEs and the ACEs Scale, will be introduced and the clear and present pathways to healing will be presented.
