Webinar series: Beyond the threat: How to tip the balance toward safety in schools while considering the needs and challenges of individual students

Massachusetts Partnerships for Youth

Registration information coming soon!

 

September 18, October 2 and 16, November 13, and December 4, 2020

 

In this 10-hour webinar series, Dr. Nancy Rappaport (and several guest experts) will deepen our understanding of how to respond to students with threatening behavior in substantial ways. She’ll also help us explore the necessary cultural changes we need to make in order to effectively support students and keep our communities safe and connected.

Questions to be considered:

  • How do we as educators/clinicians build relationships with dysregulated kids?
  • How do we teach schools about the impact of structural racism and implicit bias which impact student achievement?
  • How do we support the patterns of kids on the spectrum who are perseverative on violent themes or who express themselves in provocative ways?
  • How do we appropriately implement safety assessments and build a culture of safety?

Resilience in an Uncertain Time: Supporting Students and Families During the Pandemic

The Children's Trust

Registration information coming soon!

During this time of uncertainty and change, adults who work with children and families are rising to the challenge of finding new ways to connect with them, offering practical strategies for coping and thriving, and providing comfort and consistency – all while trying to care for themselves and their own families. Dr. Rappaport will share more practical concepts and tools that educators and social workers can use: maintaining connections, finding contributory activities, communicating in age-appropriate ways, validating questions and worries, balancing structure and rigidity, and supporting those with a history of trauma and challenging home lives. Her suggestions will be based on her many years of clinical experience and experience translating psychiatric concepts into easy actionable steps for educators and families. She will also discuss how taking care of ourselves and building our own resilience allows us to better continue to support children and families and allows us to boost our, and their, capacity to endure and perhaps even thrive.
