Program: School Improvement

Dates: 3/3/2020 to 3/18/2020

We do not need the research to tell us that teaching is stressful and burnout is real, although that research does exist! What we may not realize is that the stress we carry, can become a new normal and we are not always aware enough to intervene on our own behalf! This energy we carry not only impacts us, it impacts everyone around us - students, colleagues, our families and our community. We will explore ways we can build our own inner resilience so that we may be our most authentic and effective self. Our focus will be on the utilization of mindfulness, self-care and collaborative, supportive communities to improve our inner and outer world. Additionally, we will discuss how we can carry this forward into our classrooms, schools and personal lives.½½½½

Program: CNY/Oswego County Teacher Center

Dates: 3/13/2020

"The single most important thing a caregiver can do to help a behaviorally challenging child is to be the person who, at long last, identifies the lagging skills and unsolved problems that have been contributing to challenging episodes." -Dr. Ross W. Greene Dr. Greene's approach was first described in his books, The Explosive Child, Lost at School, and most recently in his book, Lost and Found. During his presentation, Dr. Greene will provide an introduction to the basic themes of his Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) model. The CPS model provides a compassionate understanding of kids' behavioral challenges and a non-adversarial, trauma informed, effective approach for reducing challenging behavior, improving communication, and repairing relationships. This model has been implemented in schools, inpatient units, residential facilities, treatment programs, and juvenile detention facilities. At the conclusion of this session, you will be able to: 1. Describe how different interpretations of challenging behavior can lead to dramatically different approaches to intervention, and why conventional reward and punishment procedures may not be effective for many challenging kids 2. Identify and assess cognitive skills central to adaptively handling life's social, emotional, and behavioral challenges 3. Identify and prioritize unsolved problems precipitating challenging behavior, and much more. 4. Describe the three basic mechanisms by which adults handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in kids (Plans A, B, and C) and what is accomplished by each, and the three steps or "ingredients" of Plan B. 5. Describe how to effectively implement Plan B to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior. You will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of Dr. Greene's Approach, along with practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to and used in diverse settings.
