A Stronger Workforce: Leveraging State Funding to Invest in Your Staff, Metrowest

The Massachusetts Nonprofit Network Presents

A Stronger Workforce: Leveraging State Funding to Invest in Your Staff

Generously hosted by the Metrowest Nonprofit Network  

 

Join the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network to learn about ways that your organization can support and develop its employees through the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Program: a statewide program that provides employers in the Commonwealth with funding to train and develop their employees.

At last year’s regional meetings, the need for training and professional development in the sector continuously rose to the top of the list as a primary concern among 300+ nonprofit leaders. To address this feedback, these interactive and informative meetings will provide an overview of the features and benefits of each of the Workforce Training Fund Grant programs, the amount of available funding, and how to apply for the grants. After the overview, attendees will participate in a facilitated conversation to identify and address professional development needs across the nonprofit sector to ensure we have a strong pipeline of nonprofit leaders.

The regional meetings will be most beneficial for senior leaders and human resource professionals in the nonprofit sector whose organizations are eligible for the Workforce Training Fund. Click here to find out if you are eligible. However, representatives from all organizations are welcome to attend as there will also be a broader discussion on training needs and opportunities across the entire sector.

Think Differently: A New Approach for Parenting, Teaching and Treating Children with Behavioral Challenges

               

Think Differently: A New Approach for Parenting, Teaching and Treating Children with Behavioral Challenges

Sponsored by the Natick Public Schools

Morse Institute Library ?-? 14 East Central St. ?-? Boston, MA

Friday, April 10th, 2015?-? 8:30 A.M. - 4:00 P.M.

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Think:Kids, a program in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), has partnered with Principal Kirk Downing of Brown Elementary and the Natick Public Schools to offer a one-day training program featuring Dr. Larry Epstein. This one-day introductory training provides a foundation for professionals and parents interested in learning the evidence-based approach to understanding and helping children and adolescents with behavioral challenges called Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS). This training serves as the prerequisite for our professional intensive training seminars (Tier 1 and Tier 2). 

The CPS approach provides a new way of understanding and helping kids who struggle with behavioral challenges. Challenging behavior has traditionally been thought of as willful and goal oriented which has led to approaches that focus on motivating better behavior using reward and punishment programs. If you’ve tried these strategies and they haven’t worked, this workshop is for you! At Think:Kids we have some very different ideas about why these kids struggle. Research over the past 30 years demonstrates that for the majority of these kids their challenges result from a lack of crucial thinking skills when it comes to things like problem solving, frustration tolerance and flexibility. The CPS approach, therefore, focuses on helping adults teach the skills these children lack while resolving the chronic problems that tend to precipitate challenging behavior. Through lecture, videos, case examples and role plays this one-day training will help you shift your thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with these children and encourage growth in areas of self-regulation, communication and problem solving. 

WORKSHOP PRESENTER

Dr. Larry Epstein is Director of School-Based Services at Think:Kids, Assistant in Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital and Clinical Instructor in Psychology the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Epstein has extensive experience utilizing and teaching the Collaborative Problem Solving across a variety of settings including educational and clinical programs and outpatient practice. For 17 years before joining Think:Kids, Dr. Epstein worked for the Cherry Creek School District in Denver, Colorado during which time he helped develop the district’s intensive treatment program for students with significant behavioral challenges. He is also a nationally certified bullying prevention trainer and helped found the non-profit organization Creating Caring Communities.

 

Dr. Epstein received his Ph.D. in Child Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver and completed his internship at The Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado.
