Double Deep Dive Sessions -De-Escalation: How to Respond to Defiant Children and Overwhelming Situations

Date:  June 12, 2016
Time:  9:00 – 3:30 pm
Location:  CASN Office, Building 1, Hartford

Positive behavior management strategies are intended to help children make good choices.  But what about children who continuously struggle?  How do you handle situations where a child is fighting, running, screaming, destroying things, or otherwise endangering him/herself or others?  Serious behavioral issues are a missed opportunity.  Instead of trying to contain or manage the problem, we could and should be equipping children for happiness and success in afterschool and in life.  In this intensive day-long Double Deep Dive session, we’ll take a close look at why children escalate and how to deescalate them, including hands-on, powerful tools and approaches that turn the most challenging behaviors into meaningful opportunities for lasting growth and social-emotional learning while keeping children and staff safe.  Participants will receive opportunities to practice new skills and troubleshoot their own real-life scenarios.

Double Deep Dive Sessions – Behavior Management: Building Positive Behavior and Strengthening Social & Emotional Skills

Date:  August 10, 2016
Time: 9:00 – 3:30 pm
Location: CASN Office, Building 1, Hartford

Children who have survived trauma often have strong feelings of anger and fear.  These feelings can be mixed, and are often turned against a third party or turned inward, on the self.  What’s more, we often fail to teach children appropriate ways to deal with tough feelings like anger and fear, making it challenging not just for children who’ve survived trauma, but for a majority of our children, to move through these difficult and unpleasant emotions.  In this Deep Dive, learn to help children become more aware of their own emotional processes, and to develop healthy, constructive ways of processing and managing their strong feelings.  Help children learn healthy pathways to self-regulation and self-actualization, and equip them for a healthier, happier life.
