Heather T. Forbes, LCSW, author of Help for Billy, will present a science-based regulatory and relationship-based model for working with challenging children in the classroom (from kindergarten to 12th grade). This full-day training will link together sound neurological research with negative acting out behaviors in order to give effective and practical solutions. Learning is possible, even for the most difficult and challenging student in the classroom!

A Groundbreaking Training to Help Challenging Students

LEARNING IS POSSIBLE!

School environments present a tremendous challenge to many of our children due to the increase in social interactions and the academic demands placed on their focus, concentration, and performance.   

 

 

Students communicate stress and unsettling feeling states through acting out behaviors or by defiant and resistant behaviors. If we punish children to get them to behave or to motivate them, as we have traditionally done in our schools, we simply create more stress and more of the same. The result is a student who continues to decompensate without a chance to recover.

About the Speaker

Heather T. Forbes, LCSW, is the owner of the Beyond Consequences Institute in Boulder, Colorado. Heather has worked in the field of trauma and healing since 1999. She is an internationally published author on the topics of raising children with difficult and severe behaviors, the impact of trauma on the developing child, adoptive motherhood, and self-development.

 

Coming from a family of educators, Heather has a heart for children in the classroom and for finding ways to teach the child who seems "unteachable." Her signature style is to bridge the gap between scientific research and real-life application to equip parents, educators, and therapists with practical and effective tools. Much of her experience and insight on understanding trauma, disruptive behaviors, and adoption-related issues comes from her direct mothering experience of her two adopted children.

 

"Heather Forbes and her training classes have literally changed our lives.  I feel like a more confident parent, my kids are happier and less stressed, therefore behaving better overall.  And, my son has not been sent to the principal’s office even once this year.  THATS HUGE FOR US!  What a difference Heather and her class has made.  Thank you Heather, you really have made a difference in my whole families daily life.”

"I have an emotionally needy class this year, and my discipline plan of 18 years wasn't working.  I've been applying some of the strategies--getting rid of my pocket chart discipline chart, adding more class meetings, and asking the kids what they need. Wow! They had great answers.  My classroom environment is better.”

Tammy Williams-Ankcorn

Public School Teacher

"I am a school counselor and found this book and training to be invaluable as I help my students. This year I have been at a loss as to how to help two particular students. After this training I have been able to see those students in a different light and to understand them better.. I have also been able to change the way the teachers and I help these students and we are beginning to see success.”

More About This Training
help with bad classroom behaviors

“When kindergarteners get fired from kindergarten, we have a serious problem in our perspective of childhood behavior. The solutions that are traditionally in place for children with challenging, difficult, and even severe behaviors are not working--they are failing our children in the classroom.”

(from "Help for Billy: A Beyond Consequences Approach to Helping Challenging Children in the Classroom" by Heather T. Forbes, LCSW).

 

Many children, who may be doing well early on, can suddenly demonstrate negative and out-of-control behaviors once they start their academic careers or further down the road in middle or high school.

 

This training will explore the reasons children’s behaviors are increasingly challenging both educators and parents and why external motivators and punishments such as taking away privileges, taking points off point charts, or giving detentions or suspensions are not working.

 

Looking at a child’s past history can mean everything in understanding the child’s present behaviors. Traumatic experiences alter the brain, mindset, and belief system of children and their ability to learn can become severely compromised. This training is solution-based to give practical and easy to implement strategies to help these students reach their full academic potential.
