Jan 27, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.30 | USD $249.99 | San Antonio, Texas
Trauma Informed Compassionate Classrooms: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Behavior, Improve Learning Outcomes and Increase Student Engagement is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jan 27, 2020 at Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Landmark, San Antonio, Texas, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.25 clock hours of continuing education instruction / 6.25 hours of continuing education credit. Target Audience: • General Educators • Special Educators • School Administrators • School Psychologists • Social Workers • Guidance Counselors • School Nurses • Directors of Special Education • Speech-Language Pathologists • Occupational Therapists • Paraprofessionals Course Description: As an educator, you are faced with the challenge of meeting the social and emotional needs of all your students. This can be challenging enough with typical learners but it is even more difficult with those who have experienced trauma or have mental health challenges. Students who have experienced trauma often present as difficult to engage and display problematic behavior such as a low frustration tolerance, angry outbursts or difficult social relationships. These behaviors all get in the way of teaching and learning. When a student has experienced trauma, he/she often spends much of the day in fight/flight/freeze mode which limits their capacity to learn. Their outwardly aggressive and irritable behaviors also disrupt the flow in the classroom, requiring your time and attention. Despite the amount of time you invest in behavior charts or incentives for good behavior, traditional behavioral approaches to classroom management and a punitive approach to discipline simply are not effective. Join Dr. Reese and learn how a trauma-informed approach will greatly reduce challenging behavior, improve student engagement and increase learning outcomes. Leave this seminar with new strategies, tools and resources to reduce students’ impulsiveness, aggressive behaviors and inattention and increase their focus, attention and compassion. While this positive approach is absolutely essential for students with trauma, it will also greatly benefit each and every student in your classroom. Return to your school with: • Research-based practices to establish a trauma-informed classroom • A plan to develop positive relationships and build trust with your hard-to-reach students • Prove techniques for communicating more effectively and collaboratively with challenging students • Cognitive skill-building strategies which incorporate the science of neuroplasticity and the strengths-based perspective of neurodiversity Objectives: Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to: • Analyze the ways in which poverty and mental health contribute to trauma responses thus informing your approach to working with all students. • Determine how trauma impacts a child’s development and develop strategies for meeting his or her needs. • Explore how exposure to adverse childhood experiences determines the likelihood of developmental trauma and its impact on level of functioning across the lifespan. • Establish a collaborative approach to discipline and demonstrate how this fosters intrinsic motivation for behavior change in the child. • Practice techniques to establish positive relationships and build trust with hard-to-reach students thus increasing their social and academic success. • Explore mindfulness activities that foster student self-awareness, self-regulation and the ability to focus as it relates to impulsive behavior and attention.

PMG has changed the landscape of being a woman in medicine as it has given the support to physician parents in demanding that a medical career and family coexist together. Our conference will bring this to life so that while hot topic medical discussions are in progress our families will have the ability to also gather and connect further building and growing our extended family community. We will be offering exciting medical topics spanning over all medical specialties through our three tracks (adult medicine, pediatric medicine and surgery).
