COHORT SERIES (Participants must commit to attending all five sessions in order to participate in this series and receive a certificate for ORO credit at the end). This series of 5 trainings (15 total hours) is designed to develop participants’ understanding of Evidenced-Based Behavior Support (EBBS) practices related to developing the early emotional regulation skills of children. Three main areas are covered:
(1) Unpacking provider assumptions about behavior and using culturally responsive practices; (2) understanding the influence adult behavior and environmental arrangements has on children's behavior, and (3) how to minimize children's escalation to including tantrums and aggression while maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all. Participants will be involved in meaningful activities to develop skills and apply knowledge of these best practices to their unique settings.
