Behavior - K-5 - The Science of Behavior
Limited Capacity seats available

All behavior is communication...but where is that behavior rooted? In this session, participants will learn the multiple sources of behavior which include psychological and physiological influences. Participants will also explore staff response to behaviors, including reinforcement, punishment, and discipline. Existing programs that strongly incorporate the science of behavior, such as Conscious Discipline and PBIS, will be discussed. A question-and-answer segment will allow for discussion of specific, related questions. Relevant for all Elementary Instructional Staff and Administrators.

Behavior - K-5 - The Functions of Behavior
Limited Capacity seats available

Each day, teachers witness a wide variety of behaviors from their students. When a challenging student presents difficult behaviors, there is a specific function the behavior is attempting to serve. Without realizing it, teachers often reinforce a negative behavior, causing that behavior to continue or escalate. In this session, participants will learn the different functions of behavior, explore different ways to identify a specific function, and select an appropriate response to each function. A question-and-answer segment will allow for discussion of specific, related questions. Relevant to all K-5 Staff and Administrators.

Behavior - K-5 - Proactive Crisis Planning
Limited Capacity seats available

Many teachers will be involved in a student crisis situation in the school environment, whether it be a student in their own classroom or in another location on their campus, even if they are not a designated Crisis Team member. Proactive Crisis Planning will provide participants with the tools and strategies to reduce staff and student anxiety by creating a plan to reduce the probability of (or prevent) an escalating situation from reaching the crisis stage. A strong focus will be on verbal interventions and de-escalation techniques, along with physiological-based strategies to implement in the school setting. A question-and-answer segment will allow for discussion of specific, related questions. Relevant for all K-5 Staff and Administrators.

Behavior - K-5 - Addressing Behaviors in Special Settings
Limited Capacity seats available

School professionals recognize that there are students who can be successful in the classroom setting but exhibit undesired behaviors in other locations on campus. Classrooms and areas such as Art, Music, or the Library, less-structured and less-supervised locations such as the Cafeteria and Recess, and highly-stimulating environments such as PE/Wellness can all contribute to the escalation of negative behaviors in a student. This session will provide participants with specific strategies and interventions to address behaviors in those settings. Aspects of those environments that trigger negative behaviors will be identified and participants will engage in guided problem-solving for those areas. A question-and-answer segment will allow for discussion of specific, related questions. Relevant for all K-5 Staff and Administrators.

Behavior - K-5 - Positive Student Interaction (PSI)
Limited Capacity seats available

Positive Student Interaction (PSI) defines and explores the three types of interactions between staff and students: Instructional, Corrective, and Social. Specific focus is placed on the critical importance of PSI in every school setting, how to re-frame interactions to obtain the response or result you desire from your students, and how to adjust 'Phraseology' to have a positive impact, especially with students who exhibit challenging or negative behaviors. Relevant for all K-5 staff and administrators.

Behavior - K-5 - De-escalation Strategies and Techniques
Limited Capacity seats available

Students in the classroom today come from a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, and cultures. This brings a new set of challenges to campus administration and staff when experiencing a student whose behavior is escalating. Since minimal time is spent learning about classroom management and behavior when getting teaching degrees and certifications, this training will help to bridge that gap and provide the participant with more options to address a variety of challenging behaviors in the classroom and school setting. Recommended for any first-year elementary teachers. Relevant for all K-5 staff and administrators.
