Instructor: Janice Stockman and Brandy Levesque
The Pyramid Model has answers to your questions about how to address challenging behaviors and build social emotional competence and skills in young children. It is the only evidence-based model we have to effectively teach children how to get along with each other, stay regulated in the face of strong emotions, and learn important skills like expressing feelings, solving social problems, being a good friend, and what to do when your angry.
Participants in both sessions will learn what the Pyramid Model is and why it should be your primary approach to challenging behaviors, but the bulk of each sessions will be spent on how to use Pyramid Model strategies with ample opportunity to practice the strategies with your peers. Session one will focus on strategies to build relationships, use your daily schedule and room design to develop positive social skills, and positive reinforcement to change behavior with children. Session two will focus on regulating emotions, solving problems, and fostering friendship skills. Come ready to learn and practice! This two part workshop is for people with or without Pyramid Model experience. The Pyramid Model is the basis for Early Multi-Tiered Systems of Support.
