Do you find yourself struggling to connect with some of your students? Have you noticed that challenging behavior often persists, no matter what you try? This two-day workshop, Connecting with Hard to Reach Children, will give you fresh insight and new strategies on how to connect with hard to reach children, including those impacted by trauma and toxic stress. Master Instructor Elizabeth Montero-Cefalo will teach you to understand and respond to challenging behavior, fostering connection that leads to cooperation–and, ultimately, lasting behavioral changes.
Workshop highlights include:
- Understand why some children resist connection.
- Discover how to build relationships with hard-to-reach children.
- Learn why consequences often fail with chronically aggressive children, and how and why connection leads to lasting behavioral changes.
- Explore the Conscious Discipline Brain State Model so you can better understand children’s behavior and which responses will be most helpful.
- Equip yourself with immediately usable strategies to help children develop impulse control and increase cooperation.
- Learn to adapt Conscious Discipline strategies like I Love You Rituals, Baby Doll Circle Time and noticing for all children, especially children who have experienced trauma.
