1. Nonviolent Crisis Intervention (NVCI) Initial Course

Program: Professional Development

Dates: 3/28/2017

NewStarting Soon
With a core philosophy of providing for the Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM of everyone involved in a crisis situation, the program's strategies give educators the skills to safely respond to various levels of risk behavior while balancing the responsibilities of care. The emphasis is on early intervention and nonphysical methods for preventing or managing disruptive behavior. There is a strong focus on verbal de-escalation techniques and using physical restraint only as a last resort. The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program is a highly interactive, reality-based training program combining visual, auditory, and experiential training methods to accommodate various adult learning styles. Extensive demonstrations, application activities, practice, peer teaching activities, and a written examination ensure that participants learn and understand program concepts. Annual re-certification is required, which is the 4 hour NVCI refresher course. Bring your own lunch.

2. EMBRACE - Movie and Discussion

Program: Professional Development

Dates: 4/17/2017

New
Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future, as well as redefine and rewrite the ideals of beauty. The goal is to harness and facilitate positive body image activism by encouraging women to be more accepting of who they are, to use positive language regarding their bodies and others, and to prioritize health before beauty. A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of Embrace is Taryn's story of how she went from a body hater to a body lover. The movie is 90 minutes long, and we will spend the rest of our time together having large and small group discussion about how this message impacts women across the district, from staff to students, and what we can do to change this message. Staff of all genders and teaching levels are encouraged to attend. Click here to view a trailer of the movie: https://bodyimagemovement.com/embrace-the-documentary/
