I am excited to announce I will now be offering my most popular training sessions online! If Covid has taught us anything, it’s that we can be flexible in how we share information and connect with others. When I started speaking several years ago, I didn’t have kids, a family and could easily fly across the country. My life has changed and mental health needs have changed. Instead of waiting for the next Professional Development day, counselors and educators need information at a moment’s notice. Instead of waiting for a parent night at a child’s school, parents need to know how to build emotional muscles in their kids during these stressful times in the world.
Beginning this week, the following trainings will be available to counselors, educators and parents. You can buy an individual course to watch on your own or buy a course to present to your faculty, counselors or parent group. My aim is to make these courses as convenient and informative as possible. My online courses are much like my in-person courses: practical tools within content that is simple to understand.
Below is a list of courses:
Based on her best-selling book, Allison explains how parents, teachers, and counselors can help children regulate emotions. Filled with techniques, real-life examples and practical suggestions for setting up spaces to support emotional regulation, Allison will help adults identify flooded children and help them reset. In this program, adults will not only learn how to help children reset their brains but also how to reset their own brains when triggered by dysregulated children.
We spend our days helping kids but how do we help ourselves? This program outlines self-care models for counseling professionals, uses humor and storytelling to normalize just how hard our jobs are, and leaves counselors feeling rejuvenated. Tips for how to structure the workday, balance home and work life and how to focus on your role will help counselors better manage their taxing jobs and give them strategies they can use for years to come!
Feel like you don’t have enough time to do counseling? Participants will learn 15 counseling techniques that can be implemented in less than 15 minutes from when a student walks into your office. The program can be suited to elementary, middle, or high school counselors (or a combination of all) and participants will not only learn the strategies but will be doing them alongside Allison as she teaches how to implement them. Get out your Play-Doh! This hands-on, experiential program will revolutionize your counseling department and help participants leave feeling empowered.
Educators work daily with students who are unable to regulate their emotions. Trauma and ACE’s are a large part of this epidemic and based on brain research, this workshop will help counselors learn how to identify triggers, teach effective coping strategies, and help students go from debilitated to empowered.
This course will help parents understand how the brain processes fear and the long-term benefits of doing hard things. Parents will learn practical strategies to help kids complete difficult tasks and how to stretch without breaking them. This program will prepare kids for the road!
