It’s a well known fact in Behavior Management circles- trauma inhibits success

Spend any time in a classroom or organization working with kids and you will see it right away- problems at home leading to problems everywhere else.  Teachers, counselors, and youth pastors want to learn how to use behavior management for these problems effectively, but it can be hard.  Broken homes, poverty, abuse, neglect, and addictions are prevalent in communities throughout Michigan.  These issues yield trauma and chaos in the lives of kids.  Trauma then leads to difficult behaviors which prevent children from doing well socially, academically, and spiritually.

We know this.  You have probably seen this.  So what do we do about it?

 

It’s time to learn behavior management tips that actually work.

Eagle Village has been working with trauma-impacted kids for 50 years.  Join our experts for a professional development day that will teach you very practical tools and skills that you can start using in your classroom or ministry immediately.

This seminar is for you if you work with kids who:

  • Are easily angered
  • Have trouble focusing
  • Are unable to manage their emotions
  • Are annoyed by their peers and respond inappropriately
  • Are unable to apply what they’ve learned
  • Fail to connect with adults
  • Often explode- either verbally or through physical altercations

At our seminar you will learn how to assess needs, develop a behavior management plan for the kids you work with, reduce environmental stressors, de-escalate behaviors, and how coping skills can unlock success.  Reserve your spot today!
