Description: Schools have a responsibility to protect students from the physical and psychological effects of bullying. When confronted with repetitive behaviors intended to harm, many students do not have the skill set to combat bullying behaviors. In order to lessen the impact of bullying behaviors in schools, students must be taught the appropriate responses to bullying behavior. This session will discuss school-wide strategies for teaching students to stop bullying, as well as coping strategies when targeted for bullying.

Pro-Social Leadership Skills for Students with Bullying Behaviors

Date: 
Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Time: 
3:30p.m. ET
Location: 
Online
Sponsoring Agency: 
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
Description: 

Speaker: Eric J. Landers, PhD., Georgia Southern University Department of Teaching and Learning

Description: Current research on bullying shows that many students with bullying-type behavior do not lack self-esteem or are isolated from their peers. In fact, many bullies are just the opposite - equipped with good social skills and in possession of natural leadership abilities. The issue with the typical bully's leadership style is that it is guided by anti-social behaviors. This session discusses the importance of tapping into a bully's natural leadership ability and developing pro-social leadership skills that can be used for the pro-social change in schools and the elevation of peers. The bottom line is that bullies are motivated by the power he/she receives through these anti-social skills. It's time to flip the script and make these skills work for pro-social change.
 

Flexibly Sequential Play Therapy (FSPT): A Developmentally Sensitive Model for Trauma Treatment with Children

Date: 
Friday, August 23, 2013
Time: 
8:30am – 4:30pm
Location: 
Kennesaw State University’s Continuing Education Center 3333 Busbee Drive, Kennesaw, GA 30144
Sponsoring Agency: 
SafePath Children’s Advocacy Center
Description: 

This components-based model demystifies play-based trauma treatment by outlining the scope and sequence of trauma specific work with children. Integrating nondirective and directive approaches, this model provides a theoretical scaffold at each point in treatment that supports the selective use of play-based interventions while also demonstrating the traumatized child's self-directed use of the playroom to heal.
