How to Create Behavior Plans that Work: Ideas for the Defiant, Inattentive, or Anxious Student: Classroom First Responder Series Description: In the majority of classrooms, teachers have at least one student with particularly challenging behaviors who requires an individualized behavior-management plan. This workshop is designed for general-education and special-education teachers in grades 3-12, as well as support staff, behavioral consultants, and school administrators. It provides a simple form and framework that instructors can use to create single-student behavior plans. The training also offers a collection of instructor-friendly ideas to address the 'big three' behavior profiles that surface most frequently: defiance, inattention/impulsivity, and anxiety. Participants will learn how to: • Write a single-student behavior plan that includes: definition of problem behavior(s), selection of replacement behavior(s), description of intervention(s), etc. • Ensure that any behavior plan coordinates 3 crucial components: (1) antecedent strategies that prevent problem behaviors, (2) positive consequences that encourage desired behaviors, and (3) 'extinguishing' techniques that eliminate problem behaviors • Select ideas from an intervention bank to address defiance, inattention/impulsivity, and anxiety • Collect data to set goals for, and monitor the progress of, any behavior plan Workshop participants will receive a sample form for documenting single-student behavior-management plans and will have access to a starter set of behavior-management ideas that cover the majority of commonly encountered classroom behavioral challenges. Date: Dec. 3, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: General education and special education administrators, teachers, support staff and school psychologists in grades 3-12 Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $310 per participant for CoSer 555 members $372 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Jim Wright, M.S. Contact: Dina Roselli 914-345-8500 ext. 3130 droselli@swboces.org The Impact of Bullying on Social-Emotional Development: Part II Description: Bullying is a consistent factor in school and community violence. Research indicates that the frequency and intensity of bullying has increased in recent years. Prevention and intervention with students who bully, both male and female, is essential to creating a safe environment for learning, growth and healthy development. Being victimized by prolonged bullying may harm normal social and emotional development of pre-teens, teenagers, and young adults. This workshop will build on content that was presented in March of 2014, with an emphasis on appropriate “on site” intervention with the student engaging in bullying behaviors, the student who is the target, and any students who are in close proximity. Attendance at the previous training is not necessary, as material such as the dynamics of bullying, the characteristics of bullies, and subtle and overt bullying behaviors will be reviewed. Differentiation of bullying behaviors from the social dynamic “intentional meanness,” on-line bullying, and the long term consequences for both bullies and victims, will also be discussed.
