Dealing With Angry Students and Tantrums Effectively

ID: 5061

It seems each year we are faced in dealing with more and more students who are getting angrier and angrier. Why are our students angry? How do we deal with students when they are annoyed, frustrated or otherwise irritated? What works and what does not? In this informative workshop we will attempt to briefly look at the context that seems to foster these students. Then, and most importantly, we will look at practical and simple tools that can be used immediately to decrease the incidents of tantrums and angry behaviors within the school, mental health and home setting. The goal of this workshop will be to supplement your existing tools with others you can quickly implement when working with these students during their most challenging states.

Fatherhood

ID: 4926

What is the role of the modern day father and how do we cultivate a climate of participation and inclusion. Modern day family structure and concept is morphing on a regular basis. As a result of divorce and children born of unwed parents, the definition and role of parents requires purposeful action and clear intent with family. Is the system inherently biased? While children historically have tended to remain primarily with the moms, does a father's involvement really make that much of a difference? And what about the father's who are physically present yet are functional absentees. This training highlights the correlation between positive involvement by fathers in their children's lives and the dynamic structural and systemic elements that impose barriers to healthy involvement. Best strategies to connect and support greater father involvement highlighted.

Walking the Four-Fold Way- How Ancient Archetypes Can Inform End-of-Life Care

ID: 5055

End-of-life care must go beyond the traditional medical model in order to provide a more holistic approach to the support of terminally ill patients and their families. This includes addressing the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of both the patient and their family. This interactive workshop builds on the foundational work of cultural anthropologist and author Dr. Angeles Arrien, with specific examples of how ancient archetypes and their associated human characteristics can assist hospice professionals to be present, caring and supportive of patients and families and the challenges they face at end of life. We will explore ancient archetypes found among indigenous peoples and cultures, including the warrior/leader, healer, visionary and teacher and their associated human resources and characteristics of power, love, creativity and wisdom. For each archetype and resource, we will explore relevant skills and applications to effective clinical work with terminally ill patients and families. Participants may expect the workshop to include lecture with discussion, group activities, and use of a case study.
