This is the second and third of four workshop days based on the Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Confidence. The Pyramid Model has been embedded in programs throughout the world as a comprehensive, multi-tiered, team-based approach to understanding children’s behavior, which includes prevention, promotion, and intervention practices

 

During workshop day 2 participants will discuss why it is important to be more intentional about teaching social emotional skills at the preschool level and be able to identify strategies for supporting the development of friendship skills. Workshop content will include the importance of emotional literacy and identify strategies that build “feeling vocabularies”, while deepening participants’ understanding about the importance of providing opportunities for children to begin to understand their own as well as others’ emotions.

 

During workshop, day 3 participants will recognize and discuss why children need to learn to control anger and handle disappointment and be able to identify strategies to teach anger management skills. Participants will understand the importance of teaching problem solving; be able to identify problem-solving steps; recognize the importance of and identify strategies for individualizing instruction; and discuss strategies for partnering with families.  

 

To fully understand and embed the Pyramid Model within your program, participants are encouraged to attend all four workshop days in this series as a team from your program.
