Training Model Subcategory

      Adolescent RISE Plus [A]
Target group: All staff

In Adolescent RISE Plus, we will take a fun and in-depth look at the developmental period of adolescence. This will include debunking myths about adolescence, understanding the four qualities of adolescence (risk taking, individuation, social reorientation, and emotional intensity), and learning about neuroplasticity and the adolescent brain. With this foundation, we will discuss ways to work more effectively with adolescent students.

In the second part of the training, we will focus on adolescent wellness and how we can help students become aware of the choices they can make to live a more fulfilling and balanced life. The importance of physical wellness (sleep, exercise, nutrition, avoiding harmful habits) emotional wellness, and social wellness will be addressed. In addition, the benefits of mindfulness, gratitude, and service will be discussed.
      Dealing with Difficult People [A]

Target Group: All staff

Difficult people are everywhere. Don´t believe me? Just look in the mirror. We all come from different backgrounds and possess different values, perspectives and opinions. This workshop explores how we can gain a shared understanding, reduce conflict and collaborate with all kinds of different people. We will learn about communication styles and how to better interact with critical and confrontational and challenging mindsets. You will learn perspectives, techniques and tools for de-escalation and take time to practice these new tools to apply after the workshop.

      Safe TALK (Suicide Alertness Training) [A]
Almost all of us have or will have a student, a family member, or a friend we are worried about in terms of their risk for suicide. It´s so hard to know how to recognize the danger and then to know what to say or do if you think someone you know might be having thoughts of suicide.

This three-hour workshop will assist you to be more alert in the event that you think that someone you know or love might be having thoughts of suicide. This will be an opportunity to learn what to say and do and how not to miss, dismiss, or avoid the signs of suicide.

Due to the nature of the workshop, it is imperative that participants be able to attend the training in its entirety.
      SVVSD Gender and Sexual Diversity Teacher Institutes [A]
Target group: Teachers, counselors, interventionists

Research continues to suggest that many educators feel unsupported in their efforts to create safe and affirming classrooms and schools for LGBTQ students. Our goal is to change this!

In these institutes, we hope to create learning communities across grades, schools, and subjects in which we share our experiences and support one another as we take up topics of gender, sexual, and family diversity in our classrooms and schools. In these gatherings, we´ll collaborate, practice, role-play, invent, reflect, and basically create amazing trajectories for ourselves and our colleagues.

Here’s what these 2-hour institutes are all about:

  • Collaborating with educator colleagues in SVVSD
  • Grappling together about how to introduce, engage in, and navigate conversations
  • Learning practical strategies for creating safe, inclusive, and affirming classrooms through both the social and academic curriculum
  • Becoming a leader in your school and a resource for your staff around these important topics
      Understanding Yourself, Your Students, and How to Best Respond to Behavior Through CPI [A]
Target group: All educators who want to reflect on their own behaviors and learn how to de-escalate potential crisis situations without having to get physical with students.

Upon completion of this course, participants will:
  • be able to identify an emotionally distraught student
  • assess their own reactions and influence on the behaviors of the distraught student
  • use learned strategies to de-escalate a potential crisis situation

We will also be looking at the various forms of communication and their effect on students. To do this participants must first understand the factors that influence behaviors and responses. They will reflect on their own anxieties and fears so that they can make rational and appropriate intervention decisions.

Participants will leave being familiar with ways to respond to students that are emotionally dysregulated, and have a safety plan for students in crisis.
