FLIP IT! Behavior Guidance Strategy
Led in three 2-hour zoom sessions, this training focuses on an easy-to-use four step strategy in response to challenging behaviors. This strategy relies on a foundation of relationship, empathy and understanding of trauma and toxic stress and puts together research based techniques proven to support social-emotional development and improve behaviors. Participants will learn about the four steps: (F)eelings, (L)imits, (I)nquiry and (P)rompts, how to use them in a variety of situations, as well as practice using them in response to behaviors most prevalent in the classroom.
Each session will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 pm as a live, online class (it will not be recorded). Those who register and pay will be emailed a link to register with Zoom, our online platform.
