Attempts at making behavioral change through the use of traditional FBA's (Functional Behavior Assessments) and BSPs (Behavior Support Plans) have long fallen short, and school discipline systems continue to fail those children to whom their consequence systems are applied most.
Learn how the trauma-informed, evidence-based Collaborative Problem Solving Model ® (Think:Kids, MGH, Harvard), and the pediatric neuroscience research of Dr. Bruce Perry (of the Child Trauma Academy) and other sources, inform the ability to create FBAs and BSPs that are trauma-sensitive, neurobiologically-compatible, and skill-focused.
Learn how you can stop chasing temporary compliance and start building skills!
What will I learn?
-- Strategies for looking deeper, beyond what a child is trying to get or avoid, to assess the underlying skills that need to be built
-- Comparisons of how brain-based, skill-focused FBAs & BSPs more effectively address behavior than traditional models
-- Processes to assess and plan proactive regulation as part of a plan to help a child become more accessible for intervention
-- Strategies for intervention components of the FBA and BSP to ensure that the brain can tolerate and grow from the experience
-- Application of how to take the information learned and create successful and effective Behavior Support Plans
This workshop-style training is intended for educators, parents, mental health clinicians, and community partners. Participants will experience a combination of didactic instruction, visuals, and examples, followed by hands-on creation of an FBA and BSP for a child that you live or work with.
This is an opportunity to not only learn about this innovative form of FBA and Behavior Support Plan, but to network with others who desire to promote a compassionate and neuro-developmentally supportive approach, and to receive individual attention and feedback from Certified Trauma Practitioners and Trainers.
