    Dr. Melissa Pearrow is an Associate Professor and the Program Director of the School Psychology program at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Prior to joining UMass Boston, she worked for ten years’ as a school psychologist in an urban district, where she coordinated the program for students with emotional and behavioral disorders. She will be presenting What School Psychologists Need to Know About Students with Internalizing Disorders.

    Workshop Description:

    Children with internalizing disorders can be easily overlooked since they demonstrate few discipline problems, even though prevalence rates are estimated at 10-15% of school-aged children. Internalizing problems refer to difficulties with overcontrol of distress and can impact physiological, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional functioning. With an emphasis on strategies for early identification and intervention, this workshop will discuss symptomatology, prevalence rates, and evidence-based treatment strategies as well as recommendations for engaging families and community partners.

    Practical Tools: 

    • Guided relaxation scripts 
    • Stress management worksheets
    • Relaxation audio clips
    • Classroom mindfulness activities

William James College - November 1st

Keeping our Schools Safe: What Every Educator Should Know About Safety Assessment

Instructor: Nancy Rappaport, MD

This full-day workshop will provide schools with a roadmap to creating a safety assessment team, allowing them to understand how this team should work as part of a robust approach to school safety. Dr. Rappaport will detail her comprehensive school safety assessment approach for students whose behavior raises concern about their potential for violence. Individuals are welcome, but schools may wish to send their entire safety assessment team.

Participants will learn how to create guidelines for safety assessment and get buy-in from the school, how the safety assessment team fits with other parts of a school safety plan, how to differentiate transient versus substantive threats, which key questions to ask, and how to effectively communicate with families. They will collaborate to use role-play to practice interviewing students and reaching out to families and will work on case studies that will allow them to apply the principles they have learned and learn from each other’s rich experience.

WHEN: Friday, November 1, 2019 | 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
WHERE: William James College

CREDITS: 6
FEES: $140 for CE credits; $70 for no CE credits
