Through our Learning Institute, parents, teachers, social workers, clinicians, behavioral health professionals can access the knowledge and practices that UMFS and Charterhouse School have implemented in our programs. Our successful practices range from relationship building to crisis management, from building positive cultures to effective supervisory practices, from building youth-adult partnerships to independent living skills, and from data-based decision-making to neuroscience. Our facilitators have inspired and energized other practitioners across the U.S., Canada, and several European countries.
Some of the trainings available are:
We serve as a national training site for Life Space Crisis Intervention www.lsci.org LSCI is a therapeutic skill to help children and youth gain insight into their self-defeating patterns of behavior.
LSCI is an advanced, interactive therapeutic strategy for turning crisis situations into learning opportunities for children and youth with chronic patterns of self-defeating behaviors.
LSCI views problems or stressful incidents as opportunities for learning, growth, insight, and change. This non-physical intervention program uses a cognitive-behavioral approach to behavior management and problem solving.
LSCI provides staff a roadmap through conflict to desired outcomes using crisis as an opportunity to teach and create positive relationships with youth.
Response Ability Pathways TM
Response Ability Pathways TM(RAP) provides essential strengths-based strategies for all who deal with youth in family, school, or community. Children and youth need supportive persons who respond to their NEEDS rather than react to their problems. RAP provides these response abilities which enable one to guide young person’s on pathways to responsibility.
The curriculum of RAP develops the innate strength and resilience of young people. The course focuses on three interventions: Connect, Clarify, and Restore. These are the normal "abilities" of the resilient human brain; we are endowed with the ability to connect to others for support, clarify challenging problems, and restore harmony. RAP content is intuitive, jargon free, and understandable. Strategies are safe, practical, and easily implemented. Goals target universal growth needs of children and youth. Values are universal across diverse cultures and societies.
Deep Brain Learning®
Deep Brain Learning teaches participants the latest in brain science research as it related to the development of children and adolescents. This one day course is designed for people who work with youth to better understand troubled youth and how to optimize their performance in an educational and treatment environment. Read more.
This 1-day training is based on the book Deep Brain Learning ®: Pathways to Potential with Challenging Youth by Drs. Larry Brendtro, Martin Mitchell, and Herman McCall.
Developmental Audit TM offers a fresh alternative to traditional deficit-based assessment using youth as a primary data source and full participant in this reflective and restorative process. The Audit teaches how to involve youth who are in conflict to join in the process of solving problems and finding solutions, and is particularly relevant where youth are at risk for removal from school or placement in restrictive settings.
Traditional assessments diagnose pathology and assign labels for disorders, But deficit-based approaches offer scant information about the function of behavior or the interventions that might produce growth and change. To understand behavior, we must focus on what Alfred Adler called the private logic and goals of a youth in conflict.
The PersonBrain™ Model
The PersonBrain™ Model is a neurorealtional training program that empowers helping adults with critical therapeutic skills needed to transform troubled children and youth. Based on neuroscience and the best of positive, ecological and relational psychology, this innovative program teaches the essentials of how the brain, body, culture and relational ecology function together to impact one’s overall life experience. In fact, in the PersonBrain™ Model, we say "We are our experiences!" To change a person’s life, we must change their experiences and people are the critical orchestrators of that process!
Therapeutic supports to youth need not be complex or time-consuming. Critical moments for change are abundant in the natural environment - where the brain is most comfortable. Person Brain™ Practitioners (PBP) are equipped with practical knowledge and are empowered to handle even the toughest behavioral situations. Challenging situations are seen as open opportunities to tap into the brain’s capacity to change for the better!
What May I Expect?
This intensive two-day training model provides direct training in relational areas such as attachment, trauma, attention, depression, anxiety, and oppositional-defiance, and explores how these challenges are directly impacted by experience and brain design
