 As a trainer, how can I decide which session would best meet my needs?
  • The Facing the Challenge Training is a comprehensive exploration of challenging behavior and what can be done to recognize it, prevent it and better plan strategies. Individuals who need to train and support staff on a variety of topics around challenging behavior would benefit from attending this session.
  • FLIP IT is a focused exploration of ONE problem solving strategy that helps children understand their feelings and gain healthy coping skills. Individuals who work directly with staff who struggle with implementing current challenging behavior strategies would benefit from learning how to train staff on this successful strategy.
  • Ideally, a Trainer would benefit from having both of these sets of training resources/packages available to share with those they support. With questions on which would best meet your needs, please contact Debi Mahler at [email protected].
