GPS - Lee’s Three Habits: A Workshop for Stronger Relationships and Greater Happiness
Spaces Remaining: 300
It’s a good guess, most of us would like to be a little happier. It’s a natural human desire. Unfortunately, it’s also natural for us to do things that actually decrease our happiness. When interacting with others we tend to tell, talk and take too much. Telling, talking and taking don’t make us happier — asking, listening and giving do. Ask, listen and give. These three simple habits strengthen our relationships with others, and stronger relationships (not more fame, fortune or achievement) are the real keys to greater happiness. The Lee’s 3 Habits system helps motivated people build stronger relationships and achieve greater happiness Join Dr. Paul Corona for this practical, humorous and effective workshop which is a game plan for greater fulfillment.

GPS - Documentary Film Screening The Kids We Lose: Lives in the Balance
Spaces Remaining: 289
“The Kids We Lose” is a moving film about the human side of being a child or student with behavioral challenges, and the struggles faced by parents, educators, staff in facilities, mental health clinicians, and law enforcement professionals — trying to ensure that these kids receive the help they need. The documentary is intended to heighten awareness and galvanize people to advocate for change in our treatment institutions. The current state of hopelessness, misery, and frustration for many institutionalized children is a palpable entity, and when society turns its back on its most vulnerable members, we all lose. This film is a collaboration of Lone Wolf Productions and Lives in the Balance founded by child psychologist Dr. Ross Greene – an organization which aims to foster collaboration and empathy, transform lives, and inspire change for all children (especially the most vulnerable). Lives in the Balance strives to provide vital, accessible resources and programs to caregivers of behaviorally challenging kids; to bring the plight of these kids into the public consciousness, to address the systemic issues that cause many of these kids to slip through the cracks, and to promote parenting and disciplinary practices that foster the better side of human nature in all children. Circle your calendar for Thursday February 27 at 7:00 pm at Glenbard South High School, when Dr Greene will join us at the Glenbard Parent Series for a discussion of his books”” The Explosive Child” and “Lost at School: Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges are Falling Through the Cracks” and don’t miss the January 16 documentary film screening.

GPS - Parenting The Explosive Child: A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting
Spaces Remaining: 300
What’s an explosive child? A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration—crying, screaming, kicking, hitting, destroying property, and worse. A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help. Most of these parents have tried everything -but to no avail. They can’t figure out why their child acts the way he or she does; they wonder why the strategies that work for other kids don’t work for theirs; and they don’t know what to do instead. Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren’t attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren’t permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting. With compassion and insight, Dr. Greene will provide a practical and new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. He will explain why traditional parenting and treatment often don’t work with these children, and he describes what to do instead, Dr. Greene’s Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.

Behavior - Collaborative & Proactive Solutions: Moving From Power and Control to Collaboration and Problem Solving w/ Dr. Ross Greene: 2020 CASE DuPage Institute Day
Spaces Remaining: 1
This is the empirically supported model Dr. Ross Greene described his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings. The CPS model has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world, and has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, challenging behaviors, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints. The model represents a significant departure from discipline-as-usual: it focuses on solving problems rather than on modifying behavior, emphasizes collaborative rather than unilateral solutions, encourages proactive rather than reactive intervention, de-emphasizes diagnostic categories, and provides practical, research-based tools for assessment and intervention. Participants in this workshop will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, its refinements over the past 8-10 years, and practical assessment and intervention tools.

Autism - Introduction to the SCERTS Model: A Comprehensive, Multidisciplinary Educational curriculum for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders w/ Dr. Amy Laurent: 2020 CASE DuPage Institute Day
Spaces Remaining: 1
This 1-day course will introduce the SCERTS model, a comprehensive, multidisciplinary educational approach designed for children with Autism. This framework is not exclusionary of other treatment approaches and methodologies, but rather provides a curriculum for those who are seeking guidelines for implementing a comprehensive educational plan that is based on our knowledge of the core developmental challenges faced by autistic children, family-centered care, and our knowledge of the recommended tenets of educational programming, as indicated by the National Academy of Sciences. The SCERTS framework has been designed to target priority goals in social communication (SC) and emotional regulation (ER) by implementing transactional supports (TS) (e.g., interpersonal modifications, environmental arrangement, visual supports, etc.) throughout a child's daily activities and across social partners in order facilitate competence within these identified goal areas in natural, functional and meaningful contexts. The course will begin with a brief review of current perspectives in intervention (i.e., current efficacy research and characteristics of effective educational programs) and a review of the core developmental challenges faced by this heterogeneous population of children at various stages in development (i.e., pre-verbal stages, emerging language stages, and conversational stages). This introduction will then be followed by practical guidelines for prioritizing learning objectives and will cover a wide developmental range (applicable from early intervention through the high school years). Video case examples will be used to illustrate how educators, clinicians, and families can directly apply learning strategies in the classroom environment and across settings.

GPS - Growing Up Mindful, Capable and Resilient
Spaces Remaining: 300
Introducing mindfulness into the lives of our children and teenagers is perhaps the greatest gift we can offer. Mindfulness builds emotional intelligence, boosts happiness, increases curiosity and engagement, reduces anxiety and depression, soothes the pain of trauma, and helps kids (and adults) focus, learn, and make better choices. If that weren’t enough, research in neuroscience now shows that mindfulness significantly enhances what psychologists call “flourishing”—the opposite of depression and avoidance. Clinical psychologist Dr. Christopher Willard is here to share the practical skills of mindfulness . In this inspiring presentation participants will gain real-world insights and tools to help all parents and family members evolve and grow into our best selves. Topics to be covered: Less is More Parenting — how letting go of what’s no longer necessary creates space, freedom, and the possibility for something new Building Wisdom and a Wiser Brain ? how to steer kids’ “under-construction” minds toward wise action Releasing anxiety about over or under parenting and the desire for the “perfect” family Growing Up with a Grit and Growth Mindset ? the best ways to encourage resilience and determination through reinforcing and rewarding the “growth mindset” Finding Balance in a Broken World and Staying Steady through the Stress ? how to abide life’s inevitable ups and downs through the attitude of equanimity The mindful use of technology and social media

Mindfulness builds emotional intelligence, boosts happiness, increases curiosity and engagement, reduces anxiety and depression, soothes the pain of trauma, and helps kids (and adults) focus, learn, and make better choices. If that weren’t enough, research in neuroscience now shows that mindfulness significantly enhances what psychologists call “flourishing”—the opposite of depression and avoidance. Clinical psychologist Dr. Christopher Willard is here to share the practical skills of mindfulness . In this inspiring presentation participants will gain real-world insights and tools to help all parents and family members evolve and grow into our best selves. Topics to be covered: Less is More Parenting — how letting go of what’s no longer necessary creates space, freedom, and the possibility for something new Building Wisdom and a Wiser Brain ? how to steer kids’ “under-construction” minds toward wise action Releasing anxiety about over or under parenting and the desire for the “perfect” family Growing Up with a Grit and Growth Mindset ? the best ways to encourage resilience and determination through reinforcing and rewarding the “growth mindset” Finding Balance in a Broken World and Staying Steady through the Stress ? how to abide life’s inevitable ups and downs through the attitude of equanimity The mindful use of technology and social media

Administrator - AA: Evaluating Special Education Personnel
Spaces Remaining: 70
The focus of this course is on improving the participants' conferencing conversation skills and strategies with teachers. The goal of the conversations is to improve classroom teachers' abilities to reflect, learn and apply insights to their own teaching lessons and instructional deliveries, all aimed at improvement of the teaching and learning in their classrooms. Participants will be able to identify the value of meaningful professional conversations about teaching and learning by helping teachers reflect on their teaching; expand their repertoire of questioning skills under the four phases of teacher's planning, teaching, reflecting and analyzing of lessons resulting in reflective, self-directed learning; expand their repertoire of responding and empowering communication skills and strategies that promote reflective, self-directed learning as well as teacher choice; and learn how to create 'conference lesson plans'- intent of content of messages, content of the messages and speaking language to achieve the intended messages.

GPS - Rebel Talent: Why it Pays to Break the Rules at Work and in Life
Spaces Remaining: 300
Rebels, often seen as “troublemakers,’ are those colleagues, friends, and family members who complicate seemingly straightforward decisions and create generalized chaos when everyone else is in agreement. But in truth, rebels can also be the individuals who change the world for the better with their unconventional outlooks. Instead of clinging to what is safe and familiar, and falling back on routines and tradition, rebels defy the status quo. They are masters of innovation and reinvention, and they have a lot to teach us. Harvard Business School Professor Francesca Gino is an award-winning researcher who focuses on why people make the decisions they do, and how to make those decisions stick – allowing each of us to reach our intended goals and achieve more productive lives. Professor Gino argues that the future belongs to the rebel — and that there’s a rebel in each of us. We live in turbulent times, when competition is fierce, reputations are easily tarnished on social media, and the world is more divided than ever before. In this cutthroat environment, cultivating rebel talent leads to a more vital, engaged, and fulfilling life.
