2. Working with Youth with School Avoidance and Refusal

Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

Audience: Mental Health Staff

Dates: 10/12/2021 to 12/14/2021

School refusal describes the disorder of a child who refuses to go to school on a regular basis or has problems staying in school. Children with school refusal often complain of physical symptoms shortly before it is time to leave for school or repeatedly ask to visit the school nurse. In this training, MH Practitioners will develop a clearer understanding of what constitutes school anxiety, avoidance, and refusal, and more clearly identify why a child is avoiding school. Practitioners will also learn strategies to develop initial school-based behavioral plans to help reduce school anxiety and address school avoidance and non-attendance, and increase their knowledge in how to both identify and refer complex/severe situations to appropriate resources.

3. Teaching Emotional Regulation to Youth with Challenging Behaviors

Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

Audience: K-12 Educators (Teachers & Mental Health Staff)

Dates: 10/12/2021 to 12/14/2021

Traditional school discipline procedures often don't solve the problems that are affecting the lives of students and often push kids away...toward alienation and disenfranchisement. Instead, we focus on a coaching model that teaches students self-regulatory skills collaboratively and proactively.  We will first start with a close look at beliefs about why a child is exhibiting challenging behavior.  Next we will begin the hard work of identifying the skills that a behaviorally challenging student is lacking and the specific expectations a child is having difficulty meeting in association with those lagging skills. Finally, we will discuss three ways of handling a problem with a behaviorally challenging student: Plan A, which is solving the problem unilaterally; Plan B, which is where you're teaching emotional regulation skills collaboratively and proactively; and Plan C, which is where you're setting an unsolved problem aside for now (not because you're giving in, but because you're not going to be able to work on all the unsolved problems at once).

8. Identifying and Facilitating Linkages to Community Services

Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

Audience: Mental Health Staff

Dates: 10/27/2021

In addressing the full array of student needs, schools have access to a wide variety of national-, state-, district-, and school-run programs and resources that can begin to help address the wide array of individual and family needs that can interfere with optimal learning. Ideally, the types of supports and resources that are available offer a compliment of educational and social/emotional/behavioral resources. Yet, with the many demands within a school setting, it is common for these resources to fall through the cracks. Over time, it becomes easy to lose track of all the supports and resources that are available, who can access them, how they can be accessed, and the reasons that they are offered. This workshop will focus on identifying what these resources are, who each resource is most appropriate for, and how these resources can be accessed and evaluated for quality.

Have you ever wished you had a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions about LGBTQ+ individuals and identity? Are you confused by the differences between gender, expression, identity and orientation? Have you ever wondered what the letters in the LGBTQ+ initialism mean? Would you like strategies for creating more welcoming and affirming learning spaces for LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families? This professional learning opportunity provides the tools you need! While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and affirming learning spaces there is still much to be done. For LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families the school environment can pose numerous threats and obstacles. Below are some eye-opening statistics from GLSEN's (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) 2019 National School Climate Report: 86% of LGBTQ+ students were harassed or assaulted at schools; 2 in 5 LGBTQ+ students of color were bullied or harassed based on race or ethnicity; 84% of trans students felt unsafe at school because of their gender. Anti-LGBTQ discrimination means that LGBTQ+ students miss more school, have lower GPAs, and lower self-esteem. This dynamic, interactive professional learning session focuses on building your ally skills, developing welcoming and affirming learning spaces through the use of inclusive and respectful language, terminology, pronouns and discourse, assessing the physical environment for inclusivity, creating inclusive learning opportunities, and knowing where to go for resources and support. Attending this workshop is a proactive step towards creating welcoming and affirming learning spaces. Program participants will receive a Safe Zone sticker and course materials.
