On-line Learning Course on FLIP IT!
In addition to real-time learning opportunities, the Devereux Center for Resilient Children is pleased to offer an on-line learning experience on FLIP IT, a strategy designed to address challenging behaviors of young children.
On-line course overview: When a child’s challenging behavior demands your attention, it is hard to know what to say and do. FLIP IT can be your guide.
- The four steps are embodied in the FLIP IT mnemonic that stands for F – Feelings, L – Limits, I – Inquiries, P – Prompts.
- Each section of the course uses a blend of animation, anecdotes, and real life experiences to engage the learner on a personal and professional level.
- FLIP IT offers a simple, kind, strength-based, commonsense and effective four-step strategy for day-to-day challenges and challenging behaviors from children.
- Children who are frequently “FLIPPED” become emotionally aware problem-solvers who develop healthy coping skills that will last a lifetime.
Hours: The course has a running time of 2.5 hours. Upon completion of the course, 0.5 CEUs are offered (5 hours) factoring in time for the interactive pieces, reflection, application of the skill, and learning assessment.
CEUs: from Western Kentucky University for $25 upon completion of the 5 hours of FLIP IT course work (0.5 CEUs). You will be prompted to print, complete, and mail in a course credit form after passing the assessment at the end of the final course. (Note: you do not have to complete an entire course at one time. You may exit the course and resume the course at your convenience.)
