       Classroom Management and Effective Teaching of Children and Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Problems

 

A conference for teachers, administrators, social workers, counselors, and psychologists focused on evidence-based classroom strategies that really make a difference

PRESENTED BY   HSC Workshops

 

A dynamic course…

            filled with PRACTICAL, REALISTIC STRATEGIES you can use immediately

 

            “This day was packed with ideas I’ll be able to use tomorrow in school. Well worth my time.”  Brenda Tisdall, High School English Teacher

 

            “Good information from people who know what it is like to have my job.”  Barry Stivers, Elementary School Teacher

 

            Many children have emotional or behavioral problems that present special challenges for teachers and others in school. This workshop will provide you with strategies to enhance learning, build self-esteem and control disruptive and otherwise troublesome behavior of students with emotional and behavioral problems.

            We will discuss the causes of these problems (conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, ADHD, depression and bipolar disorder, bullying, societal violence, parental mismanagement, among others) and, on this foundation, build practical strategies to maintain behavioral control and teach effectively.

  Dear Participant;

            Please join us for this timely, informative workshop. In addition to being seminar leaders, we taught for many years. We know the challenges you face. We know that there seem to be more and more students with behavior problems and many of the problems are more severe. It can be difficult to get parent cooperation or even the full corporation of your colleagues sometimes. We know you are busy. Join us and we will make good use of your time. You can expect to return to your classroom with practical tools. Over 97% of our participants say this program “met” or “exceeded” expectations.

            We will help you understand the difference between behavior problems and discipline problems because each requires different approaches for management. We will clarify the difference between discipline and punishment and discuss specific instances where each is most effective. We will discuss anxiety and depression because these problems may not be obvious, but often underlie learning and behavior problems. And we know perfectly well that, to be practical, management strategies have to be cost effective in terms of time so we will stress effective brief intervention techniques in day-to-day behavior management.
