Challenging Behaviors: Why They Happen And How To Address Them Effectively

Over the summer, educators and administrators extensively planned for most of the nation’s students to return to in-person instruction this fall. They prepared for the significant challenges they expected to face, from learning loss to behavior issues that were likely to intensify as students transitioned back to in-school learning and reacclimated to the structures and daily routines they were no longer used to following.

Despite their best efforts, most educators were not prepared for the sheer enormity of the behavior challenges and levels of mental health concerns they faced when students did return. The impact of months of isolation, inconsistent routines, and challenging home environments resulted in unprecedented behavioral issues that most educators felt ill-equipped to deal with effectively.

In this edWebinar, Dr. Will Henson, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, and Dr. Gastrid Harrigan, Principal of Cypress Run Education Center in Broward County (FL), will help attendees understand the root causes of many of the most difficult behaviors and the ways in which recent events have intensified these challenges.

In addition, they will share proven strategies that educators can implement immediately to effectively address challenging behaviors while still holding high expectations and providing high support to students.

This edWebinar will be of interest to PreK-12 school and district leaders and special education directors. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.

Navigating the Behavior Spike with Trauma-Informed Leadership

We are seeing a massive spike in behavior, anxiety, depression as people try to navigate the expectations of returning to school. The impacts of the past 18+ months of a global pandemic, stressful societal conditions, increased reliance on technology and screens, and the loss of routines has resulted in stress and dysregulation amongst staff and students alike. Successfully navigating this requires a deliberate plan. District and school leaders need to understand why it’s happening and what to do about it.

In this webinar, district and school leaders will learn how to plan for a district or school-wide trauma-informed approach, including:

  • Developing a trauma-informed mindset amongst all staff
  • Creating a trauma-informed approach to discipline
  • Using trauma-informed behavior intervention strategies
  • Managing the stress of staff shortages
  • Focusing on an intentional rebuilding of school culture

Setting Your Paras Up for Success: Building Effective Teacher-Paraeducator Partnerships 

Watch the replay

Paraeducators have never been more essential to a school’s support system than they are today. We need effective paras who can partner with teachers as part of a team dedicated to ensuring every student succeeds. Teachers are most often tasked with building and nurturing these relationships, and acting in a supervisory capacity, yet they rarely receive training on this topic. 

What can you do to ensure your paraeducators are set up for success?

Join Dr. Skip Greenwood, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, published author, and co-founder of 321 Insight,  and Mr. Roland  Espericueta, District Coordinator of Professional Learning for San Marcos CISD, Texas,  as they discuss the importance of teacher/paraeducator partnerships, the strategies to employ to build them, and best practices from districts.  Learn best practices for:

  • Developing and defining paraeducator roles
  • Building positive teacher-paraeducator relationships
  • Supporting effective supervision of paraeducators
  • Creating meaningful opportunities for paraeducators to make contributions
