Plan to Attend PSBA's Pre-Convention Session!

"Student De-Escalation Training: Developing a Solution Mindset"
Sunday, June 25, 2023

This pre-convention training course will be a six hour session to receive proper training in positive behavior support and de-escalation strategies. The de-escalation strategies provided are for those working with children who may exhibit challenging or dangerous behaviors. This training focuses on creating a positive and supportive physical and social environment, teaching functional alternatives to challenging behaviors, how to minimize the intensity and duration of escalation, and how to decrease the future likelihood of escalation occurring. Our highly experienced trainers will teach participants how to prevent many behavioral crises and how to respond if a child becomes escalated. A nominal registration fee will be charged to cover the costs.
