PEP Assist Training Institute Returns Feb. 13 – 14

After a several year hiatus resulting from the pandemic, the in-person PEP Assist Training Institute returns this Feb. 13 – 14. The topic is “Trauma-Informed Care and Crisis Interventions Made Simple.”

This two-day training will provide participants with strategies and resources to implement in their classrooms as soon as they return. The topics for each day are highlighted below.

Trauma Informed Care. Don’t Know What to Do Next?

Day one focuses on reviewing the brain, how trauma impacts its development and how to understand student behavior within that context. Content will include how to engage with young people in an appropriate sequence to promote regulation and help students reflect, learn, remember and become more self-assured. In this session, participants will develop specific strategies for their classrooms in coordination with the PEP Assist team.

Life Space Crisis Intervention: A Roadmap for Prevention and Intervention

Day two will focus on Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI), an advanced, therapeutic strategy for anyone who works with young people who have mental health challenges. LSCI is a reality-based, clinically powerful approach that integrates research-validated, psycho-educational management techniques. Participants will gain take-away skills that enable them to be more active and professional as contributors to the crisis prevention and crisis intervention process.
