        • This two-day seminar is based on 33 years of combined experience working with children with challenging behaviors and finding success using research based strategies. This seminar provides educators with a better understanding of children who have suffered from disruptive attachment and trauma which are often the root cause of inappropriate and/or out of control behavior in the classroom. In a fun and interactive way participants will learn that an emotionally healing environment is establishing healthy boundaries as well as building healthy relationships with their students. As the educator develops the skills and confidence in working with challenging students they will feel more joy and success in their job. This leads to a deeper connection between the educator and the student thus enhancing emotional and academic growth.
