1. From Engaged to Empowered - Creating Agency Among Students ONLINE COURSE

Program: Professional Development

Audience: K-12 teachers, coaches and administrators

Dates: 9/16/2019 to 11/3/2019

ONLINE COURSE
Starting Soon
This online learning session is meant to challenge educators to think about how to provide a truly student-centered learning environment. It is not about "doing something better" but more about "doing something different" in order to cultivate a love and enthusiasm for learning. This will yield higher levels of student achievement and outcomes that are relevant to the students themselves.

Participants will be introduced to a Student Empowerment Tool and will develop an understanding of varying levels of engagement. We will focus on the difference between "engaged" and "empowered." Strategies and structures that support student empowerment will be identified and discussed. Through the power of video we will capture and evaluate examples of student empowerment. Educators will walk away with ideas about how to increase student agency as well as how to plan so that students become truly empowered learners.

From Trauma to Healing; Building a Trauma Sensitive Approach to Service Delivery

There is a growing awareness that trauma is pervasive and that the impact of trauma is often deep and life shaping. Trauma and toxi stress are often at the center of a person's mental health challenges, substance use, physical health issues and/or involvement with the justice system. This means, whether or not it is fully recognized, staff at our school districts are working with survivors of trauma.

Creating a trauma-informed system requires not only understanding the impact of trauma, but implementing changes in the service delivery that align with the five core principles of trauma-centered safety: safety, trust, choice, collaboration and empowerment.

This consultation proposal aims to support staff through increasing their knowledge and capacity around the essential elements of a trauma-informed system and how that understanding can be applied to their daily practice and organizational culture.

Day 1: Grief and Loss; Trauma
Day 2: Suicide Prevention and Intervention; Chronic and Acute Illness
Day 3: School Violence and Threat Assessment; Infrastructure Development and the Back-Up Support Network
Days 4-5: Group Crisis Response Skills (Critical Incident Stress Management)

Please Note: December 17, 2019 will be used as a make-up date in case any of the above dates need to be canceled (by either the instructor or W-FL BOCES) due to unforeseen circumstances.

16. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools - No Physical Restraints

Program: Professional Development

Audience: This course is designed for School Personnel

Dates: 10/1/2019 to 10/15/2019

Cornell University developed the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) model for residential care as part of its Residential Child Care Project in the early 1980's. The foundations of this curriculum are in research based literature and programs. In 2007 Cornell responded to requests from various Board of Cooperative Education (BOCES) Centers and other public schools and adapted the TCI curriculum to meet the needs of schools. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) gives WFL BOCES a framework for implementing a crisis prevention and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions, complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and includes aspects of trauma informed care.

There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

There are three levels of certification:

Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)
Level 3: Verbal techniques, protectives and physical restraint techniques (initial training of 28 hours)

This is 21 hour training will certify verbal de-escalation skills including the LSI.

The use of technology in the classroom is an expected norm and plays a critical and fundamental role in enhancing education. This workshop is aligned with the ISTE Standards for Educators and will provide participants with a technology integration framework to consider how to purposefully incorporate technology into the classroom to leverage personalized instruction. A digital resource bank will be shared and some of our region's most popular tools will be modeled for teachers. Teachers of all "tech abilities" can expect to walk away with some new ideas for leveraging technology in a manner that will enrich their program.

    There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

    Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
    Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
    Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

    There are three levels of certification:

    Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
    Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)

    Program: Professional Development

    Audience: SLPs, Teachers, Paraprofessionals using AAC

    Dates: 3/2/2020

    Model as a MASTER PAL is a series of training modules developed by Tabi Jones-Wohleber. According to Tabi, "Model as a MASTER PAL" was developed to help shape behaviors and belief systems of communication partners supporting individuals who use AAC. It was developed from the premise that:

    1. AAC implementation is not intuitive 2. communication is not compliance.

    This training series assumes topics related to core vocabulary instruction and explicit creation of communication opportunities have already been covered, and communication partners require additional information to improve the effectiveness of implementation.

    The structure of this training series lends itself to delivery over time for ongoing discussion and support related to AAC implementation. It emphasizes that modeling language with AAC is the communication partners responsibility (full stop!

    This workshop will cover the following topics: Time, (Wait Time, Think Time, and Time for Language to Develop), Engage Naturally, Response Not Required, and Presume Potential.
