Description

You’ve seen it -a kindergartner who screams “You hate me” and pushes other kids; a student who makes a threat and may need an alternative placement; a student with a frantic fight or flight response who throws things when he is frustrated.

It’s time to optimize effective ways to understand and address students’ seemingly intractable behavior.

In this recording, Dr. Nancy Rappaport presents a comprehensive, accessible, and flexible framework for practical intervention with traumatized children and adolescents. As the author of the influential book The Behavior Code: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching the Most Challenging Students, Dr. Rappaport will share her method for understanding and improving behavior in challenging students which looks at the function of the behavior, accommodations, interventions, and nurturing responses to traumatized children.

You will also learn how to implement a comprehensive school safety assessment approach that allows schools to work with mental health professionals to prevent school violence and get students the support they need. This model allows schools to address concerns about students’ potential for targeted violence and make recommendations to enhance safety, connection, and engagement. Dr. Rappaport will have interactive case discussions that help participants practice and reinforce critical process of assessment and design a care plan.

Working as a science teacher at an innovative elementary school in Harlem, NY where she advocated for support for struggling families was a life-altering experience and inspired her to enter medical school. Dr. Rappaport received the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s Sidney Berman Award for the School-Based Study and Treatment of Learning Disorders and Mental Illness in 2012.

One reviewer notes that “The Behavior Code gives teachers the tools to transform the behavior patterns of some of their most challenging students. By using this essential book, teachers—instead of punishing or ‘writing off ‘ troubled students—can get them onto a path for success.” Rappaport is also the author of the memoir In Her Wake: A Child Psychiatrist Explores the Mystery of Her Mother’s Suicide, winner of the Boston Authors Club’s 2010 Julia Ward Howe Prize.
