Young people today are experiencing stress, unpredictability, and change at rates and intensity we never would have imagined. More than ever, they need adults to remain reflective and attend to what is underneath challenging behavior. This training is aimed at increasing the helping professional’s, therapist’s, and teacher’s ability to recognize how and where a child is struggling, be aware of their own part of the therapeutic relationship, join a child in their distress, and co-create the steps to heal.
We will dive deep into intervention and learn how presence and predictability can lead to regulating group work. The environment of repair is crucial to restoring kids’ learning. We will focus on how the routine and schedule can encourage a positive trajectory.
This is Part 3 of a four-part series we will offer throughout 2021. Each part will build on work presented in previous sessions, but previous completion of any other parts is not required.
