Children often exhibit challenging behavior when they don’t have more appropriate behaviors or skills to accomplish their goals or to get their needs met. Therefore, it’s important to spend time each day teaching specific social emotional skills that will set children up for success. The Pyramid Model, a public health framework for implementation of practices needed to promote young children’s social and emotional competence, can help you do this. Join us for this Video conference where panelists will explain the importance of teaching children specific social emotional skills and how doing so can help set children up for a successful school experience. Guests will introduce you to the Pyramid Model and demonstrate how it can be used to help address challenging behaviors of children—including the importance of nurturing and responsive relationships, high quality environments, and targeted social emotional strategies to prevent problems.

* This Video conference is the first of two that discusses the Pyramid Model. Both trainings will cover some common information but individually will not cover all content about the Pyramid Model. You do not have to take one Video conference in order to take the other. Taking them both will give you a more complete picture of the Pyramid Model and how it can be used in your program.
