Why this course?

Today’s educators have more responsibilities than ever before. Teachers are increasingly accountable for student performance while trying to manage difficult behavior in the classroom. Many good educators are leaving the profession due to their feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.

Course Description

This two-day seminar is based on more than 40 years of combined experience working with children with challenging behaviors and finding success using research-based strategies. The seminar will provide educators with a better understanding of children who have suffered from disruptive attachment and trauma which are often the root cause of inappropriate and/or out-of-control behavior in the classroom. In a fun and interactive way, participants learn that having an emotionally healing environment is about establishing healthy boundaries and building healthy relationships with students. As the educator develops skills and confidence in working with challenging students, they’ll feel more joy and success in their role. This leads to a deeper connection between the educator and student which will enhance the student’s emotional and academic growth. Although the seminar is geared toward educators, mental health professionals and parents will also benefit.

Educational Goals and Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of healthy versus unhealthy childhood development and the impact it has on behavior.

  • Gain a better understanding of the underlying causes of severe behavior including trauma, attachment, temperament, development and entitlement.

  • Have a better understanding of how their own personal history impacts interactions with others as well as the students and clients they work with.

  • Learn how good relationships, healthy boundaries, and effective communication can improve behavior and foster emotional healing in students and clients.  

  • Learn practical strategies and healthy discipline techniques that can immediately be implemented in classrooms.

When adults understand the impact of trauma and development they are better able to create healing environments for children.
