Are you ready to stop “managing” students and learn tools for effective classroom leadership? Are you looking for a social emotional learning program that is woven into and consistent with your discipline program?  Are you looking for ways to build a structure of trust and respect among school staff? Positive Discipline can help!

Hundreds of schools also use these amazingly effective strategies for restoring order and civility to today’s turbulent classrooms. Now you too can use this philosophy as a foundation for fostering cooperation, problem-solving skills, and mutual respect in children. Imagine, instead of controlling behavior, you can be teaching; instead of confronting apathy, you will enjoy motivated, eager students! You’ll discover how to:

    • Create a classroom climate that enhances academic learning.
    • Use encouragement rather than praise and rewards.
    • Instill valuable social skills and positive behavior through the use of class meetings.
    • Understand the motivation behind students’ behavior instead of looking for causes.
    • And much more!

Building Resiliency: Working with Students Exposed to Trauma

Do your students over react to small things?
Do they struggle to regulate emotion?
Do they act younger than their age?

Many students have been exposed to trauma and as a result have difficulties in school.

    • What trauma and insecure attachment do to growing brains.
    • To lead a classroom to benefit all students – including those exposed to trauma.
    • To teach students why their brain sometimes “won’t cooperate”, and what to do about it.
    • To use strengths-based plans to foster learning for students exposed to trauma.

Preregistration required.
