Beyond Consequences in the Classroom
A groundbreaking training to help challenging students, learning is possible!
Wednesday, August 19
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Columbian Hall, 946 N. Lake Rd., Atwood
Join Heather T. Forbes, author of Help for Billy, for a full day interactive and dynamic training. Parents, grandparents, clergy, daycare providers, and anyone working with children will gain an empowering understanding of why school environments present a tremendous challenge to many of our children and why so many of the traditional techniques are not working.
Heather T. Forbes was born and raised in Vero Beach, Florida where she grew up with three older brothers and a fraternal twin sister. Growing up with two alcoholic parents, Heather recalls feelings of being “invisible” within a family system and as a child, found connection and validation through academics graduating at the top of her class. Following high school, she attended the University of Florida and earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture and a master’s in construction management.
After working for ten years in the field of architecture, Heather woke up one morning with this pulling desire to be a parent. Due to numerous health issues and operations in my past adoption became the way to motherhood. Read more about Heather.
Using her personal experience and research, Forbes will present a science-based regulatory and relationship-based model for working with challenging children in the K-12 classroom. The workshop will give participants real tools for real results and will link together sound neurological research with negative acting out behaviors with effective and practical solutions.
The event is free but registration is required by Friday, August 7. Donations can be made to the Ministerial Alliance. To register contact Cathy Holste by email or by phone, 785-626-3969.
