MORNING SESSION: Building a Supportive School Culture Utilizing The Nurtured Heart Approach:

It is a general consensus among experts that there is an overwhelming need to strengthen and unify the actual climate within school settings. This can mean devoting resources to eliminate detrimental things for children and youth such as bullying or discrimination. Research has shown that there are several key factors in making schools safer and cultivating social emotional health within the school setting is one of those factors.

The Nurtured Heart Approach has proven to be very successful in building a supportive community within the school culture itself. When this methodology is administered within a school setting, it creates a community in which each person has consideration for the well-being of not only themselves, but for others around them. Many of the schools that institute this approach see a significant decrease in detention, suspension, bullying, ADHD evaluations and experience heightened academic success. It creates a community of children and teachers working together and perhaps a safe place for children that have a troubled home life. Come and explore how The Nurtured Heart Approach can be instituted within the classroom and create a more unified and supportive learning environment.

Presented by: Andrea Parker, Holding Out Hope Training and Support

AFTERNOON SESSION: The Invisible Suitcase: Trauma is a psychologically distressing event that is outside the range of normal human experience. Parenting a child who has experienced trauma requires a shift in the way you think about childhood development as well as the way you communicate with and provide support for the child in your care. Becoming trauma informed opens up a new way of thinking about and acting on the behaviors you experience in your home. Nichol Khan M.Ed., MSW, Mercy Care Child Welfare Liaison will provide a brief snapshot in understanding the behavioral, neurological, and health effects of trauma and help assist you in reducing power struggles and begin to make genuine strides toward improvement.

Presented by: Nichol Khan M.Ed., MSW, Child Welfare Liaison, with Mercy Maricopa

A few notes...

  • You can attend just the morning, or just the afternoon session, but the fee is still $15.
  • If you attend both sessions, you will receive 6 credit hours of training towards your annual renewal hours for OLR or OLCR. If you attend just the morning, or just the afternoon, you will receive credit of 3 hours.
  • Last day for registration is February 25, 2019. There will not be same-day registration. You will need a ticket to attend.
  • We can issue refunds for any reason prior to February 25, 2019. Just e-mail us using the Request Refund link in your registration confirmation e-mail.
  • Child care is not available
  • As such, you can not bring any children* or vulnerable adults to the Blitz. They can not be left unattended on the campus, and they can not sit in class with you. If you try to bring a child/vulnerable adult to the Blitz, you will be denied entry. We hate to be mean but this happens every year and it's not fair to everyone else who made childcare arrangements.
  • *We do make one exception--newborns who are nursing--just email us at azkidsblitz@gmail.com so we can have a nursing room set aside for you and so that we don't turn you away!
  • Breakfast and registration check in is from 8 am to 9 am. The first class starts promptly at 9:00 am.
  • If you check in late (after 9:15 am), the instructor has the right to not have you participate in the class. If you are allowed to stay, your credit hours will be reduced accordingly.
  • Two breaks will be provided during each class. If you take excessive breaks, or leave the workshop early, your credit hours will be reduced accordingly.
  • Lunch is served from 12 pm to 1 pm. You do have the option to leave campus to get your own food if you choose.
  • Afternoon class starts promptly at 1:00 pm and it ends at 4:00 pm.
