**Participants must attend workshop day 1 prior to attending.  Workshop day 2 and 3 are a combined 12-hour workshop, attendance at both days is required to receive a certificate.**

This is the third of four workshop days based on the Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Confidence. The Pyramid Model has been embedded in programs throughout the world as a comprehensive, multi-tiered, team-based approach to understanding children’s behavior, which includes prevention, promotion, and intervention practices.

During workshop, day 3, participants will recognize and discuss why children need to learn to control anger and handle disappointment and be able to identify strategies to teach anger management skills. Participants will understand the importance of teaching problem solving; be able to identify problem-solving steps; recognize the importance of and identify strategies for individualizing instruction; and discuss strategies for partnering with families.

  • Examine why it is important to be more intentional about teaching social emotional skills.
