Description:
Whether staff are supporting anxious individuals, defusing irrational outbursts, or responding to physical risks, some organizations need to creatively consider the “grey areas” that require staff attention. Do you need a structure to view these complexities? Are there instances in which risks are present, but the physical interventions you taught staff seem more restrictive than necessary?
Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® – MAPA® Edition introduces Certified Instructors to some of the MAPA® (Management of Actual or Potential Aggression) physical intervention skills and a behavioral risk assessment protocol that will expand perspectives around these circumstances.
This unique four-day advanced course:
• Expands the applicability of Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training.
• Offers alternative training content and facilitation techniques.
• Increases organizational resources for all parts of an ongoing Training Process.
• Unlocks the potential to include staff not previously trained by adding flexibility and expanding curriculum options.
• Offers new ways to teach Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training and increase the program’s relevance.

Motivating children is the foundation for all successful teaching practices. The way we positively motivate our children has implications for their long-term development and learning.

We will also explore what motivates us as practitioners to better use data and feedback for growth. Along with Dr. Holland we will explore how to build assessment and evaluation into practice to improve the learning of all kindergarten students as well as improvements in our own practices. Finally, we will wrap-up with ways to develop smooth transitions from grade to grade to allow children to experience successes as they grow and develop to keep children fully motivated and engaged in their learning.
