Conflict Coaching - A Solution to Bullying that Actually Works
Traditional solutions to bullying don’t work. Punitive approaches inflame the situation and silence the person targetted, while “empowering the bystanders” seems to be ineffective. After 10 years teaching and 10 more in camping, Kathleen has honed a 3-step process that empowers the person targeted, breaks the cycle of victimization, and actually solves the problem. By combining elements of restorative justice, conflict coaching, and the latest bullying research, you’ll learn a simple new approach to help students escape bullying.

Sensitivity Training: A Better Alternative for Repeat-Aggressors
We all know that suspensions rarely work. Sensitivity Training is a program that DOES work - 8 years running. The program builds empathy and problem solving skills in students who repeatedly aggress who initially show no remorse. Students leave feeling willing to repair the damage they've done. This session will give you the foundations to better handle difficult conflicts, teach empathy, and, if you choose, build your own scalable program.

Mettre en oeuvre les meilleures pratiques pour enseigner l’écriture
This session will be provided in French. Writing is a complex task requiring many skills. The complexity of the task can be overwhelming for many students and especially those who struggle with learning disorders, executive function challenges and anxiety. Emerging research supports structured and explicit writing instruction to help all students develop effective writing skills. In this session, the speaker will outline a six-step structured writing process that can be used in elementary classrooms to teach students to write across the curriculum. The speaker will also walk participants through the creation of a detailed and differentiated lesson plan.This structured writing procedure helps students develop the foundational thinking and writing skills needed to become successful writers. It addresses metacognitive strategies and the four best practices for teaching elementary education highlighted by a meta-analysis conducted by the Institute of Education Sciences (2012),   Disclaimer: Elements of the Tell me! program, developed by the Centre for Literacy, will be used in this presentation.

The Hunger Games: That kid’s just looking for attention…
"That kid's just looking for attention..." Probably. But not for why you think. Kids are starved for connection, direction, attachment and positive adult relationships, and we need to fortify them! This session speaks to the biological, psychological and developmental reasons kids seek our attention, why they NEED to seek our attention and why we MUST give it to them. Using videos, humor and different perspectives, we'll look at the behaviors and brains of these kids and the survival games they play. Participants will learn the "Vitamin C" approach to attention seeking behaviors, and explore the research, theory and practical applications of nourishing our students with the time and attention they seek…and deserve.
