{WEBINAR} A Trauma Informed Approach to Behaviors in the Classroom

August 11, 2017

This webinar was LIVE on August 19th.  If you missed it, it is now available for purchase on my website!  You receive all the same benefits, including lifetime and unlimited access to the webinar AND permission to share it with your child’s education team- from now until forever!!

Sending our children with a history of trauma back-to-school comes with a huge mix of emotions.  Excitement, relief, anticipation, dread.  Hands-down the most common school-related challenge facing the families I work with is the behavior management tools used by teachers in traditional classrooms.  Levels, color-charts, stop-lights….each is the same approach packaged a little bit differently.  These approaches- with their focus on behaviors, rewards, and consequences- usually INCREASES stress in our children, causing even more difficult behaviors.  At the very least, they aren’t helping us work toward our goals of increased regulation, connection, and felt-safety for our children (which ultimately will result in improved behavior).

Two years ago I published my 10-page letter to teachers which outlined a Trauma Informed Approach to Behaviors in the Classroom.  You can read and download that letter by clicking HERE.  The letter is succinct (only 10 pages- doesn’t take too much time to read) yet long enough to be helpful (a blog article just doesn’t cut it).  It’s steeped in science with scholarly citations, yet written in a language that is clear, down-to-earth, and easy to understand.  The letter helps teachers understand WHY these traditional behavioral modification techniques don’t work for children with a history of trauma, and then provides an excellent alternative that is easy to implement and integrate with the level system they are already using.

Moving into a new school year, I’ve updated the letter and turned it into a webinar!!!

The webinar is next Wednesday, August 16th and everyone who registers will receive LIFETIME and UNLIMITED access to the recording.  This means you do NOT have to attend live!!

BUT WAIT!  This webinar is a little unique.  The information in the webinar will help you advocate for your child in school, but really the people who need to watch the webinar are everyone on your child’s education team!!

SO. Everyone who purchases the webinar receives permission to share the webinar with their child’s teacher and education team! And remember- access to the webinar is LIFETIME and UNLIMITED.  This means you can show the webinar to your child’s teachers from now until they go to college (or at least through elementary school, as this webinar does focus on behavior techniques used most commonly in elementary school settings).

AND.  I’ve updated my original letter-to-the-teacher, which will also be provided to each and every person who registers.

Basically, by registering for this webinar you are arming yourself with information, AND getting access to resources that you can give to your child’s teacher.  Resources that are short enough (10 page letter and one-hour webinar) that the teacher won’t feel overwhelmed, yet long enough to actually be helpful and practical.

AND THESE RESOURCES WILL NEVER GO AWAY.  You will receive lifetime and unlimited access.

All for only $25.  It’s important to me that these resources are available to everyone who needs them.

    I asked the Educational Psychologist why they were so focused on reward charts when these barbaric measures have been so comprehensively discredited by scientific research. Her answer? “Well that’s how we do it, here.”

    And they wonder why they are not getting anywhere.
