Mental health challenges are prevalent among school-aged children in this country. An estimated 21 percent of American teenagers have struggled with a serious and debilitating mental health problem at some point during their school-age years. Teachers should not be expected to be therapists; nor should they be expected to understand effectively and teach students with mental health disorders or with challenging behavior without proper training. However, intervening effectively with these students requires a shift in how we typically understand behavior and in our traditional behavioral strategies, a shift that requires education and practice. Teachers need a new approach to understanding behavior as well as a toolbox of strategies that allows them to intervene successfully. With the additional tools and insights from the new book The Behavior Code Companion, easy to implement preventive tools, strategies, and interventions for reducing anxiety, increasing self-regulation, executive functioning, and self-monitoring will be discussed and practiced. Participants will receive a copy of Jessica Minahan's newest book, "The Behavior Code Companion". BCBAs will receive 5 Type 2 BACB CEUs, Teachers will receive 5 participation hours. 4.5 Social Work CEU's will be awarded.
