Dealing with Problematic Behavior: Strategies to Support De-escalation and Inclusion

Date/Time: Tuesday, November 8, 2016, 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Location: Department of Children, Youth & Their Families (DCYF), 1390 Market St., Suite 900

 

Is there a child or two in your program that seems to have disproportionate behavior issues? Young people use their behavior to tell us what they need. Understanding the needs behind problematic behavior takes time, patience and an understanding of trauma. By re-framing problematic behavior as an unmet need for the child, we can design interventions that allow for connection and inclusion, rather than exclusion (like time-outs or suspensions). Through experiential activities, trauma-informed theory, and role-play activities this training will provide concrete strategies for afterschool staff to de-escalate and prevent those behavior disruptions that interrupt good teaching.

 

Participants will:
• Build a common definition and understanding of problematic behaviors that interrupt the flow of good programming.
• Learn a trauma-informed analysis to understand what kids need when they are “acting out”.
• Practice strategies to intervene and de-escalate challenging behavior
• Strengthen your program’s existing behavior management protocols to anticipate and respond to challenging behavior
• Brainstorm ways to improve partnerships with the school day staff and parents to support a preventative environment
• Understand other resources in SF that can provide extended support

In this session participants will receive:
• Experiential Activities to Introduce Identity, Culture, Class, Gender, and Inclusion
• A 10-Step Implementation Guide to Purposeful Program Design
