SEL: Data Gathering for IEP Goals

SEL: De-Escalation
Limited Capacity seats available

This class will cover topics related to limit setting, proxemics, debriefing, and personal safety.  This class will not result in an NCI/CPI certification.
Who should take the course?
- Staff members who would benefit from learning about best practices
related to prevention and de-escalation of student behaviors
- Staff members who are not staffed in district level programming
- Staff members who will not be on the school crisis team.  Participants of
this course alone cannot be on your crisis team because they will not be
NCI/CPI certified.

Why the addition of this training?
- De-escalation classes have been added to help reach more staff members
without having to meet the requirement of a yearly renewal like NCI.
- The shorter course may also allow more staff to attend given the need for staff to engage in other areas of professional development on PD days.

SEL: How to Handle Difficult Behaviors in Adolescents
Limited Capacity filling up

How to Handle Difficult Behaviors in Adolescents:  Many youth act like they don’t want help (they push us away) but it is our responsibility to make sure youth get help.  All behavior has meaning, and youth tend to act when they are lonely, scared and upset.  Our role is to help adolescents learn to love themselves, balanced with self-responsibility.  Teaching coping skills and appropriate ways to express feelings is central to helping youth become responsible, self-reliant and resilient.

SEL: Recognizing Your Emotional Triggers and Personal Self-Care (CLOSED)
Limited Capacity full

In case you haven’t noticed, teaching is stressful! Stress causes all of us to react. We all have “triggers” that cause us to react emotionally to situations. Some of these triggers are universal. Some are unique to each of us based on our own life experiences. To prevent the burnout that can come from the day- after-day stress of our jobs and compassion fatigue caused by continuously dealing with challenging behaviors, we have to be able to identify our own emotional triggers and the strategies that will help us stay calm and emotionally regulated in the face of stress. Just like the flight attendants remind us, we also have to put on our own oxygen masks before we can help anyone else. This workshop with help participants learn their own triggers, develop “emergency” self-care strategies, and create a long-term plan for emotional well-being.

SEL: Depression in Adolescents
Limited Capacity seats available

Depression in Adolescents:  Depression in adolescents is not uncommon and is often brushed off or dismissed as a “phase.”   There is also a tendency to ignore the withdrawn or quiet youth because they are not “causing a problem.”  But if depression persists and is left untreated, depression can lead to serious consequences.  For this reason, signs and symptoms of depression in adolescents must be identified, assessed for lethality, and treatment provided.
