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.

WASHBURN ACADEMY: Beyond Behavior Management: Empowering Teachers to Connect with ALL Students - July 18, 2017 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=17690&memberid=630 ***ADVANCED REGISTRATION REQUIRED! 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.

WORKSHOP FEE: $230.00 | UP TO 3 GRADUATE CREDITS AVAILABLE AT AN ADDITIONAL $130.00 EACH

Step Outside and Into Engagement: Outdoor Classroom Leadership - March 15, 2018 http://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=18133&memberid=630 Harness the benefits of the most interactive instruction possible: learning on school grounds, outside the four walls of the classroom. Conducting class outside offers many academic, social and emotional benefits for students. Studies link outdoor learning to improvement in attitudes toward school, increased student achievement, higher attendance, increased social development, and physical health benefits. Learning outdoors is even linked to a reduction of ADHD and ADD symptoms among some students. This workshop is designed to provide K-12 teachers with training in conducting class outside on any type of school grounds in order to engage and inspire students in learning. Guidelines, rules, safety considerations, resources and handouts will be provided so teachers have everything they need to lead confidently. Classroom management practices that fit within existing PBIS models and are specific to the outdoors will be discussed. The workshop will include time for collaboration and lesson planning, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can implement outdoor learning right away.

Please see the attached flyer for more information.
