Collaborative & Proactive Solutions:
Shifting From Modifying Behavior to Solving Problems
Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) is the evidence-based model that has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world! It is associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, challenging behaviors, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints.
Moving Beyond Survive:
A Pedagogy of Mattering
All students have potential that educators must nourish, protect, and grow for a better world. Dr. Love will share how innovative civic education, students’ knowledge production and multiple identities, and Hip Hop culture can be cultivated to engage students in the work of fighting for visibility, belonging, and justice.
Based on the ideas from Dr. Bryson's New York Times bestseller No-Drama Discipline (with Dan Siegel), this workshop highlights the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way educators react to misbehavior, providing an effective, compassionate roadmap for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears—without causing a scene. Dr. Bryson explains how to reach a child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into a teachable moment. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem-solving becomes a win/win situation.
Trauma- and Resiliency-Informed Schools
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study findings show the long-term and damaging effects of often unseen trauma in childhood. What are the implications of this knowledge for health and education? As educators, there are things we can do to respond and create more resilient, trauma sensitive classrooms for our students and ourselves!
