April 25, 2017 9:00 – 3:00 Cost: $45 Asheville Event Center
Learn how Buncombe County Schools use trauma sensitive strategies and social-emotional learning throughout their implementation of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support. Using many tools and strategies from Compassionate Schools and the Community Resiliency Model, our trauma-sensitive schools deliver services to all students in a whole group, small group or individual model. You will receive practical strategies to be used immediately in the classroom based on brain research, along with guidelines to implement comprehensive programs of support for all students. You will also examine the benefits of integrating school-based mental health services into the tiered intervention model to achieve improved behavior outcomes. This workshop would be appropriate for Administrators, PBIS teams, MTSS teams, social workers, counselors, or any other school personnel involved in these issues.
