Audience:
Pupil Services staff, Health educators, Administrators, and others concerned about youth suicide

Among Wisconsin youth, suicide is the second leading cause of death and accounts for almost 1 in 5 of all deaths. State law requires school districts to provide specific classroom instruction in youth suicide prevention and to annually notify staff about the Department of Public Instruction’s resources.

The workshop helps participants understand the scope of youth suicide and what schools can do to reduce suicidal acts and thoughts among students. Participants learn about the prevalence of youth suicide, risk and protective factors, comprehensive prevention programs, and crisis intervention.

This workshop is not intended to train all school staff, but prepares teams of pupil services staff, health educators, and administrators to plan, prevent, and intervene at their schools. Action planning is integrated into all phases of the training program. A model workshop for all school staff is provided.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their suicide crisis response plans for discussion and revision.

Participants will:

  • Understand the prevalence of youth suicide
  • Discuss legal requirements
  • Gain knowledge and skills to improve classroom instruction at the middle and high school level
  • Create a local action plan based on a 3-tiered prevention and intervention model to reduce suicide among youth

Cost: $50.00 per person—School teams are encouraged - Includes Continental Breakfast, Lunch, and Snack

Traumatized youth often react to frustrations with negative or explosive behaviors that are difficult to anticipate and manage in the classroom. If you’ve found yourself saying, “I didn’t see that coming,” or “They just blew up on me for no reason,” then this workshop will help. Through lecture, video and small group discussion, our full-day workshop will teach psychoeducation, behavioral prevention and early intervention skills for educators in the classroom. You will practice prevention and de-escalation strategies focused on language, body posture, tone of voice and negotiation to help you and your students feel emotionally safer so they can learn.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understand how the “brain’s danger alarm” works and how to identify trauma triggers and re-enactment cycles in the classroom. (Tier 1)
  2. Learn how to use psychoeducation materials classroom-wide to provide language and strategies to manage emotional distress. (Tier 1)
  3. Learn and practice “just-in-time” skills and strategies to reduce the escalation of student negative emotional behaviors. (Tier 2/3)
  4. Create an intervention plan specific to a trauma (Tier 3)
  5. Integrate trauma-model interventions with the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. (Tier 1)
  6. Learn how to practice and implement mindfulness activities to improve student focus and decrease reactive emotions (Tier 1)

TARGET AUDIENCE:

Teachers, administrators, support staff, and pupil services.

COST: $35.00 (Includes lunch and snacks)

Do you know students who have a story to tell? This is a training for adult facilitators to go back and use with individual or small groups of high school students. Honest, Open, Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps students look at the story they have been telling themselves, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides them to draft their own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources discovered and used to live life in the way they choose. Go to: https://wisewisconsin.org/resources/honest-open-proud/ for more information.

Spend two days with Julie Petersen learning how to become a "witness” to a child's traumatic experience, as well as how to best appreciate the intensity of the experience and the needs of the child. Experience the child’s perspective and learn how to support success in school. Julie will demonstrate how The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children’s evidence-based, structured sensory intervention process brings children and adolescents relief from the terror of their traumatic experiences. This structured process is used in schools and agencies across the country and has been proven, via research, to reduce trauma-specific reactions across all three major subcategories of PTSD, while increasing school performance and decreasing school absences and office discipline referrals. These strategies could be considered Tier 2 and/or Tier 3 interventions for students dealing with trauma and loss.

* DAY 1 will concentrate on how the brain reacts to trauma and ways to use a variety of sensory techniques to help children of grief and trauma. Time will be spent caring for the caregiver as well.

* DAY 2 will be spent exploring a variety of techniques designed to move students from being victims of their experience to becoming
survivors.  Activities include resources dealing with anxiety, group and individual process using TLC process, Mindfulness for adults and children, Resiliency activities as well as time to develop an implementation plan for your caseload.

Audience: Designed for School Counselors, School Nurses, Principals, Teachers and any other school staff dealing with Children of Trauma.

About the Trainer:
Julie Petersen is a TLC Certified Trainer, TLC Level 2 Trauma Consultant and a School Counselor in the Chippewa Falls School District. She has counseled
students at all levels, most currently
serving Parkview Elementary, serving 500
students. She has attended workshops at the TLC Institute for the past six summers and is currently working on her Trauma Assessment Consultant certification.

Lynn Verage, CESA #9 (715) 453-2141; lverage@cesa9.org

Spend two days with Julie Petersen learning how to become a "witness” to a child's traumatic experience, as well as how to best appreciate the intensity of the experience and the needs of the child. Experience the child’s perspective and learn how to support success in school. Julie will demonstrate how The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children’s evidence-based, structured sensory intervention process brings children and adolescents relief from the terror of their traumatic experiences. This structured process is used in schools and agencies across the country and has been proven, via research, to reduce trauma-specific reactions across all three major subcategories of PTSD, while increasing school performance and decreasing school absences and office discipline referrals. These strategies could be considered Tier 2 and/or Tier 3 interventions for students dealing with trauma and loss.

* DAY 1 will concentrate on how the brain reacts to trauma and ways to use a variety of sensory techniques to help children of grief and trauma. Time will be spent caring for the caregiver as well.

* DAY 2 will be spent exploring a variety of techniques designed to move students from being victims of their experience to becoming
survivors.  Activities include resources dealing with anxiety, group and individual process using TLC process, Mindfulness for adults and children, Resiliency activities as well as time to develop an implementation plan for your caseload.

Audience: Designed for School Counselors, School Nurses, Principals, Teachers and any other school staff dealing with Children of Trauma.

About the Trainer:
Julie Petersen is a TLC Certified Trainer, TLC Level 2 Trauma Consultant and a School Counselor in the Chippewa Falls School District. She has counseled
students at all levels, most currently
serving Parkview Elementary, serving 500
students. She has attended workshops at the TLC Institute for the past six summers and is currently working on her Trauma Assessment Consultant certification.

Register by June 9th to reserve your spot!***

Whenever I’ve taught classes about students with special needs, the resounding reaction from regular education teachers has been, “But these are great strategies for ALL students.”  How do we take what we know from special education and connect with kids who may not be identified with a disability but still have some of the same needs?  This question is at the heart of why schools are focusing on school wide proactive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS).  The most effective educators understand that preventing behaviors and empowering students to change their behavior is essential in creating classroom community and increasing academic achievement.

This course will pull information from what we know about how anxiety, depression, attention difficulties, hyperactivity, and social disorders and apply it to your daily classroom practice.  Resources are limited and the best way to increase the success of students who are struggling is to empower the teachers who spend the most time with them.  The majority of challenging behaviors come from a skill deficit or an unmet need.  This class will help you identify those needs in a proactive way so you can connect with the student and identify strategies that are more likely to be successful.
