Kids and the latest drugs: what they are and how they work

Perhaps you think you’re hip; maybe you know you’re not.  It is difficult to keep up with teens and mood-altering substance use and, do you know what?  They prefer it that way!  Abused over-the-counter medications, K2 (if you don’t know what that is…take this class!), and all the other latest ways to get high will be identified and discussed.  We may never be hip, but at least we can know what we are talking about and what kids are up to these days.

Giving kids the social skills they lack

Yes, we all agree: they should have already learned these things at home!  But what should we do about  students who repeatedly show us they lack basic social skills?  Empathy, conflict resolution, impulse control, emotions vocabulary…we can help students develop these attributes and skills.

Short on theory and long on practical application, this TeleClass will outline numerous strategies, how-to’s and tips you can use when  helping students help themselves.

When a student’s parents get divorced

 So, so many kids experience this unfortunate event.  And we at school see the acting out and other behaviors.  It’s difficult to know what to say or how to help.  That’s too bad, because there is SO much we can do to help these kids as they go through these difficult times.  We’ll cover what to say–and what not to say.  We’ll cover a checklist of resources to have in place in your school.  And most important we’ll show you how to give the gift of hope and healing when it’s needed most.

Military kids and school

Pretty tough to focus on school when one of your parent’s is off in a foreign country in harm’s way.  And it is difficut for school staff to know how best to assist–how much slack to cut them, what to say, how to help.  This TeleClass will give you a number of things to keep in mind as you support these students.

Helping students grieve through their losses

Children and teens are no different than adults when it comes to experiencing the loss of a loved one except for in two ways: they don’t have the maturity to put perspective on the event and they usualy don’t have any tools for coping with the intense feelings.  It’s tough, for sure–and we can’t take the pain away, but we can walk with them and remind them that they will get to the light at the other end of the tunnel.  This class will make you better equiped in knowing how to help without helping too much.
