Addressing Needs of Students Who Attempt to Escape and Avoid: Moving Beyond the Function of Behavior
This half-day workshop focuses on the issue of escape and avoidance typically resulting from threats to safety, frustration, or the need for autonomy/self-determination. Working in conjunction with the process of functional assessment, this workshop addresses the importance of exploring function in the light of human needs. If requested, this workshop can be adjusted to specifically address students on the autism spectrum.

Meeting the Demands of Human Service Work
This 1-day workshop explores issues of professionalism. By accepting a position in human services, staff members place themselves in very demanding situations and must hold themselves to a set of expectations that significantly surpasses that of the typical person on the street. This workshop addresses issues of self-care, self-control, organizational understanding, and assertive communication as tools for maintaining consistently high professional behavior.

Understanding the Profile of a Crisis: the Impact of Fight and Flight in Clients and Staff
“What just happened?” is the most common question asked following a crisis. There are physiological reasons for the sense of confusion that accompanies a dangerous situation. Understanding what’s going on in your own mind and body as well as what is happening with your clients will help you work and stay safer. This half-day session focuses upon the phases of a crisis, from its start to its completion, and the impact each has on both the client’s or student’s ability to process information and make good choices as well as that of the staff members involved.
