    Behavior for Administrators: Using Data, Integrating Initiatives, & Planning for Sustained System Change
    NWRESD Clatsop Service Center | 2/21/2019  |  8:00 am to 3:00 pm

    This training is designed to develop a network of administrators who not only understand what EBBS practices are but also how to integrate efforts that truly address behaviour change of all students.  Particular emphasis is placed on looking how systems put in place can either work against each other or strengthen efforts present in a district or campus-wide initiative.  Development of coherent multi-year plans are discussed, as well as what data is necessary to collect and analyze to ensure the invested resources result in truly sustainable and meaningful change in the lives of professionals and students.

    Workshop Presenter

    Lead Trainer: Dr. Ben Smith has over 20 years’ experience as a professor, federally funded researcher, behaviour specialist, classroom teacher, and consultant/trainer.  He has been recognized for his work related to better understanding coercive escalation cycles between adult and children and improving the functional behavioural assessment process.  He has worked with dozens of school districts from across the country to build durable and sustainable systems that promote professional’s use of true evidence-based proactive practices that build the emotional regulation skills of ALL children. His expertise has been sought out as guest reviewer in many professional journals (e.g., Behaviour Disorders, JPBI, Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis), and has been involved in several state-wide initiatives related to Positive Behaviour Interventions & Supports.  His emphasis on multi-tiered systems change and explicit teaching practices as part of comprehensive behaviour support programming has facilitated the integration of multiple initiatives that impact all professionals and all children within a building or district community.  His development of the 5-step Competing Schedule model of behavioural change has been used across the country to develop graduate programs of study, specialized programs for students with the most significant behaviour support needs, and helped countless professionals and parents understand how to ensure evidence-based practices are used in their daily interactions with children.

      Workshop Purpose

      This two-day workshop is open to the following educators:

      * Staff with a current OIS certification (within 2-years) needing re-certification.

      We will review positive behaviour supports, evasions, deflections, escapes, and belt-shirt techniques.  In addition, the new SYNC curriculum will focus on educational practices such as Restorative Justice, Growth Mindset, Mindfulness, and Trauma Informed Care.  Those who need additional training in protective physical interventions, such as one or two-person restraints, will need to submit an individualized behaviour support plan prior to attending.  The re-certification and initial certification are good for two years.  Please eMail Ben Smith if you have questions about who is eligible for the re-certification workshop. 

      For staff who need OIS-IF (Individual Focus) level certification, we will also train the advanced holds needed for those identified students.  A Behaviour Support Plan is needed for IF Certification.  Please contact Ben Smith for questions about the G and IF level certification levels.

        NWRESD Clatsop Service Center | 3/14/2019  |  8:00 am to 3:00 pm

        This training is designed to engage participants in discussion on various societal and personal beliefs about behavior and how differing theories of behaviour influence how professions approach and address emotional regulation skills of children.

            Collaborative Problem Solving Workshop

            Tier 1 Intensive Training Workshop

            Presented By: Randi Cooper and Jordan Spikes 

             

            Workshop PurposeNorthwest Regional ESD is proud to offer an intensive training workshop in the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach based on the book “Treating the Explosive Child” (Ablon, Greene).  Presented by Think:Kids certified professional trainers, Randi Cooper, M.Ed., and Jordan Spikes.

            This 2‐1/2 day intensive training is intended for educators, mental health clinicians, parents, and community partners.  Relationally based, CPS views challenging behavior as a learning disability of some very crucial cognitive (thinking) skills necessary to handle the demands of everyday life and not the result of a child’s willfulness or poor parenting.  Through a more empathetic and accurate understanding of what is getting in a child’s way (preschool—adolescence), we (educators, parents, clinicians) are better able to intervene to support children through a collaborative process of teaching skills and solving problems.  For more information about the CPS model visit: www.thinkkids.org.

            *18-19 March, 2019 - 8:00 am to 4:00 pm

            Understanding Behavior 2: Preventing Escalations & Maintaining Safety For All
            NWRESD Columbia Service Center | 3/19/2019  | 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

            This training is designed to build from the mindset and EBBS foundation discussed in Understanding Behavior 1 and expands participants’ understanding of behavioral escalations, in particular how to prevent damaging coercive patterns between children and adults from being formed.  Critical preventative and de-escalation techniques designed to maintain a safe environment for all adults and children will be detailed.

              Workshop Presenter

              Lead Trainer: Dr. Ben Smith has over 20 years’ experience as a professor, federally funded researcher, behaviour specialist, classroom teacher, and consultant/trainer.  He has been recognized for his work related to better understanding coercive escalation cycles between adult and children and improving the functional behavioural assessment process.  He has worked with dozens of school districts from across the country to build durable and sustainable systems that promote professional’s use of true evidence-based proactive practices that build the emotional regulation skills of ALL children. His expertise has been sought out as guest reviewer in many professional journals (e.g., Behaviour Disorders, JPBI, Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis), and has been involved in several state-wide initiatives related to Positive Behaviour Interventions & Supports.  His emphasis on multi-tiered systems change and explicit teaching practices as part of comprehensive behaviour support programming has facilitated the integration of multiple initiatives that impact all professionals and all children within a building or district community.  His development of the 5-step Competing Schedule model of behavioural change has been used across the country to develop graduate programs of study, specialized programs for students with the most significant behaviour support needs, and helped countless professionals and parents understand how to ensure evidence-based practices are used in their daily interactions with children.

                    To promote fluency-building of participants who previously completed a 1-Day EBBS Workshops,  several 4-hour drop in sessions (10 AM – 2 PM) are available at regional service centers.  These sessions are designed to provide participants a supportive place to bring an issue to discuss, collaborate and network with others to develop plans, and get feedback and recommendations. These opportunities are also for those participants who want to further develop their understanding of EBBS practices by experiencing how others apply these practices to real life situations.  *NOTE:  to allow time for professionals to complete a 1-Day workshop, the first Behaviour Support Drop-In at each ESD Service Center is open to all interested participants.

                    Workshop Presenter

                    Lead Trainer: Dr. Ben Smith has over 20 years’ experience as a professor, federally funded researcher, behaviour specialist, classroom teacher, and consultant/trainer.  He has been recognized for his work related to better understanding coercive escalation cycles between adult and children and improving the functional behavioural assessment process.  He has worked with dozens of school districts from across the country to build durable and sustainable systems that promote professional’s use of true evidence-based proactive practices that build the emotional regulation skills of ALL children. His expertise has been sought out as guest reviewer in many professional journals (e.g., Behaviour Disorders, JPBI, Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis), and has been involved in several state-wide initiatives related to Positive Behaviour Interventions & Supports.  His emphasis on multi-tiered systems change and explicit teaching practices as part of comprehensive behaviour support programming has facilitated the integration of multiple initiatives that impact all professionals and all children within a building or district community.  His development of the 5-step Competing Schedule model of behavioural change has been used across the country to develop graduate programs of study, specialized programs for students with the most significant behaviour support needs, and helped countless professionals and parents understand how to ensure evidence-based practices are used in their daily interactions with children.
