Defiant, Manipulative & Attention-Seeking Students: How to Unlock Their Potential & Survive the Process – Part 1

Presented by Eric Clark, M.Ed.

Wednesday, November 12, 9:00  am – 12:00 pm

Working with difficult, demanding, and disruptive students is not a new challenge for educators. However, there are current concerns being voiced regarding the changing nature and intensity of the behaviors of these students. Some educators are reporting increases in selfish, manipulative and hostile behaviors while others are noticing more students who are overly anxious and/or difficult to engage. Even well-seasoned, award-winning master educators can sometimes have their “feathers ruffled” by certain students in certain situations.

 

Responsibility-Centered Discipline is designed to assist all educators with identifying and addressing challenging student behaviors that affect the academic and behavioral progress of the students with whom they work. This power-packed seminar will provide you with up-to-date insights and strategies for reaching and helping those young people who seem to evoke the strongest feelings of frustration, hurt and sometimes discouragement in professional educators.

Learning Objectives:

  • Implement do’s and don’ts to address specific behaviors
  • Gain integral key strategies for migrating from an obedience-centered approach to a responsibility-centered approach
  • Develop innovative ways to support positive behavior
  • Apply strategies for preventing the escalation of difficult behavior
  • Identify the underlying causes of difficult behaviors in students

Mean Girls Behind the Screen: Addressing & Preventing Bullying, Cyberbullying & Relational Aggression

Presented by Steph Jensen, M.S., LPC

Thursday, November 18, 8:00 am – 11:00 am

Technology and social media play an increasingly large role in the social development of students today. Studies show that the average student (ages 7-17) spends up to 10 hours a day in front of a screen — cell phone, computer or tv.

Social media platforms have become critical for students who want to stay connected to peers — especially girls. But as girls spend more time trying to stay “connected” online, they actually become more disconnected. Studies show a correlation between the amount of time spent on social media and personal life dissatisfaction. Girls often create elaborate identities and personas on-screen; but do you ever wonder what is going on behind the screen?

 As girls experience the turbulent times of childhood and adolescence they often turn to social media to hide their fears, confusion and anxiety from the outside world. As a result, girls are twice as likely as boys to develop an internalizing disorder such as depression or anxiety by mid-adolescence.

Author Stephanie Jensen, MS, LPC will help attendees better understand what is hidden behind the screen of “mean girls,” and gain tools and strategies for promoting the healthy development of confident, strong and happy girls.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how social media affects brain development
  • Develop an understanding of how social media can impact mental health
  • Discover strategies to teach Netiquette: Send Means Said
  • Create a plan for effective communication in the digital and real world
  • Apply tools to address social media addiction
