Training Model Subcategory

      Adolescent RISE Plus
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.
      Conflict Resolution: Strategies for Before, During, and After Conflict Occurs [A]
Target group: Licensed and classified staff

Conflict happens, and when we have the right tools and skills, we can respond in a way that helps all parties gain perspective and learn from the situation. This course will provide strategies for addressing conflict in three stages: before, during, and after.

Participants will learn circle processes for establishing ground rules and expectations, and holding students accountable to classroom norms. Through experiential learning using realistic conflict scenarios, participants will practice using a map to navigate through conflict between students, or between student and adult. This map can be modified according to the environment and particular rules and expectations of the space, so that it can be applicable across contexts. Course content will address the importance of building clear expectations, respectful, trusting relationships, and how to create opportunities for repair after the conflict or its consequences have caused harm.

This course will be taught in two 4-hour classes. Participation in both classes in mandatory.

Please note: much of the content in this course has also been taught in LCJP´s Restorative Tools for the Classroom Training. Participants who already attended Restorative Tools can benefit by taking this as a refresher course.
      Design a Relationship-Based Classroom [A]
Target group: PreK-12 teachers

Discover why creating positive, trusting relationships with students is the most effective classroom management strategy! Participants will learn how the child/teen brain works, understand how to recognize emotions, and practice using relationship-based strategies such as therapeutic limit setting, offering choices, and problem solving. Additionally, participants will understand the importance of consistent classroom rules, expectations, and routines. Lastly, participants will explore the power of apologies and imperfect teaching while learning how to model self-compassion, self-care, and self-regulation.

      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 four-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.
