Bully, Bullied, or Bystander

School-related professionals (SRPs) are often the ones in less structured parts of the school day-cafeteria, playground, hallways, bus, etc. They are be more likely to witness bullying because the people who bully tend to use larger, less structured areas as an opportunity to bully others.

Dealing With Difficult Behaviors

This seminar offers strategies for dealing with students who exhibit chronic and extreme misbehavior, including violence. Participants will learn to understand the motivation behind this behavior and which intervention techniques to use when it occurs.

Disability Awareness

School-related professionals (SRPs) play an important role with students with disabilities whether it is in the special education classroom, on the bus, in the cafeteria, on the playground, etc. They may work closely with one student with severe disabilities or multiple students with less severe disabilities.

Our World, Our Students

The seminar examines the complexity of the diverse student populations within our schools. Our students represent the financial disparity, diverse cultural backgrounds and differences in learning styles and abilities found amongst the citizens within our state.

Recognizing and Managing Conflict

Conflicts are normal and unavoidable occurrences in our everyday lives. Most of these are minor and easily resolved. Participants will learn how to handle minor conflicts that may occur with colleagues, supervisors and students and identify ways to defuse these situations before they can get escalate and get out of hand.
