This free training will provide professionals with ideas on how to implement positive behavior support techniques with people who have experienced trauma. Participants will create a Positive Behavior Support Plan for themselves throughout the class to aid in applying the overall principles to their everyday lives. Discussion will be centered on different approaches to looking at behavior through a trauma-informed lens. This training is especially beneficial for professionals assisting people who have experienced traumas and are having challenging behaviors as a result of those traumas.
After attending, you will be able to:
Recognize the impact of trauma on emotional and behavioral functioning and survival mechanisms
Identify how to create a functionally equivalent replacement behavior
Develop ways to create individualized positive behavior support interventions

Introducing Virtual Statewide Sibshops!
These virtual Sibshops are for children ages 7-12 who have a sibling with a disability. They will have the opportunity to meet other siblings, talk with other who "get it", and learn more about disabilities and the services their sibling may receive. This is a chance for children to feel heard in their experiences as a sibling while having fun, playing goofy games and making friends!
Monday, January 15

All Sibshops happen from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. EST.
