Reframing Behavior Management – January 20, 2018  NO LONGER ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS

Behavior modification, renamed as behavior management in the 1980’s, is a thing of the past.  The current philosophy that moves beyond behavior management is positive behavior support.  This session contrasts the traditional coercive approach to the current one and guides all professionals toward the development of a comprehensive system that is anchored in sound principles, protects the dignity of children, and fosters the development of self-discipline and conscience in our children.  

  • CDA Subject Areas: 3 and 6
  • Core Knowledge Areas: Teaching and Learning, Professionalism and Program Organization

 

The Challenging Child – February 14, 2018  ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS

Coming face to face with a child that tests us is an opportunity to put effective approaches into practice.  These approaches relinquish control over the child in order to gain influence and positive outcomes for both.  This session examines three variations of challenging patterns, including, children struggling with power, children with weak neurodevelopment functions, and children on the anxiety spectrum.  

  • CDA Subject Areas: 3, 4 and 8
  • Core Knowledge Areas: Child Development, Teaching and Learning, Families and Communities

 

Nobody Left to Hate – March 10, 2018  ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS

The fastest growing population of criminals in the United States are our children, according to the Federal Department of Juvenile Justice.  These patterns of behavior are observed in younger children, some as young as preschool and appear more random and without reason.  Children with these behaviors in the youngest of years are more likely to develop violent tendencies, mental health issues, chemical dependency, criminal behaviors and/or become prisoners.  Fortunately, there are many interventions available and this session will examine a framework of developmental strategies that effectively and efficiently address the aggressive and hateful behaviors of children.  

  • CDA Subject Areas: 3, 4 and 8
  • Core Knowledge Areas: Child Development, Teaching and Learning, Families and Communities

 

Islands of Happiness – June 6, 2018  ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS

Over the past 40 years, I have observed behavior for the sole purpose of answering on question, “What really matters?”  In that search, I have been able to identify the patterns that lead to a lifestyle of authenticity, hope, and happiness.  In this session, we will reveal the roots of happiness and ways to live joyfully.  

  • CDA Subject Areas: 3 and 6
  • Core Knowledge Areas: Teaching and Learning, Professionalism and Program Organization
