"I Can't" vs "I Won't": Understanding and responding to complex students with exposure to negative life events and/or disinhibition disorders

Presented by: CPRI’s Attachment Consultation and Education Service & The Brake Shop

Calling school principals, teachers, and support staff:
Are you seeking PD for Friday January 31? This two-part workshop is designed to help school professionals, support staff, and families understand and respond to students who seem overwhelmed in the classroom. 
Presented by Community Behaviour Consultants from CPRI’s Attachment Consultation and Education Service, the first part of the day will provide an overview of the effects that negative life events have on the developing brain and attachment, including the effects of disturbed attachment. Relationally-focused intervention strategies for students will be introduced, alongside discussion about how to incorporate them into the classroom setting. 
During the second part of the workshop, Community Behaviour Consultants from CPRI’s Brake Shop will explore Tourette Syndrome and associated Disorders (Tic Disorder, ADHD, OCD, Sensory Processing Dysfunction, Intermittent Explosive Disorder or 'rage'), how to recognize symptoms, understand challenges, and support students with these disorders through a trauma-informed and relational lens.

The day will emphasize practical discussion regarding strategies and tools that can be used in school settings. 
Presentation 1: 9 AM – 12 PM: Erin Watkins & Jo Johnson: Supporting youth in the school setting through a relational and trauma-informed lens.
Presentation 2: 1:15 PM – 4 PM: Becky Mathieu & Jenna Koning: How to recognize symptoms of disinhibition disorders and practical strategies in school settings.
