In this workshop you will review practical methods to assess student behavioral issues and develop positive strategies for convincing challenging students to cooperate and engage in learning. Examine common counterproductive aspects of traditional classroom behavior management in contrast to resiliency-based methods. Focus on strategies that integrate positive classroom management models with resilience research and positive psychology models to create a positive climate and motivate students in the classroom. Discuss how to introduce social-emotional learning into the curriculum to assist students in becoming cooperative and contributing members of the school and community. Finally, learn to foster positive youth development and well-being in your everyday practice.
