Equity Symposium: Preventing Early Childhood Suspensions and Harsh Treatment, It’s All About You!

When children are engaged in persistent behaviors that are difficult to manage, adults frequently experience powerlessness, especially when working with young children they describe as defiant or oppositional. This results in harsh discipline of young children. This workshop discusses the relationship between children’s behavior and adult’s responses. The role of implicit bias on behavioral expectations will be discussed and strategies provided preventing harsh discipline.

Recommended prerequisite:  Dr. Shantel Meek laid the groundwork for all of these sessions during the Sharing A Vision conference (October 8, 2021).  Her session will be available to view for credit as a stand alone asynchronous session prior to the Equity Symposium sessions.  You can register for that session here:  https://www.cvent.com/d/zmqq4z
