What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided. For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

  • A requirement of registration is to complete: 1. A Pre-training Reading Assignment, and 2. An initial Implementation Plan
    Both are available at: www.wishschools.org/resources/schoolsbirt.cfm
  • The school implementation plan must be submitted one week prior to training to: Tracy Herlitzke, therlitzke@cesa4.org
  • Initial Training  (Day 1) — Overview of SBIRT, introduction to the requisite skills (Motivational Interviewing), and practice on delivering protocol-guided Brief Intervention services.  Audio tape delivery of Brief Intervention.
  • Adopt SBIRT Into Practice and Continue Implementation Planning — Staff deliver SBIRT services and track initial implementation.  Staff meet with student services leadership to complete Implementation Plan.
  • Follow-up Training  (Day 2) — Staff receive individualized feedback from fidelity review of audiotape.  Continue skill building, practice delivering SBIRT, and refining Implementation Plan.
  • Implementation Coaching — Staff will participate in monthly implementation coaching calls.

Active Students Learn Better with Active Schools Core 4
According to the CDC, students who are physically active tend to have better grades, school attendance, cognitive performance (e.g., memory) and classroom behaviors (e.g., on-task behavior). CDC recommends 60 minutes of physical activity each day. However, this is not always the case in school. Too often students are sedentary the majority of their day. This workshop will provide the tools necessary for the implementation of a comprehensive physical activity program (CSPAP) that multiple national organizations, including SHAPE America and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommend developing and implementing.

Wisconsin has developed its own very successful comprehensive program called Active Schools: Core 4 This program is tailored to meet the needs of your school/district. Learn the strategies and help your students meet their need of 60 minutes of activity a day and boost their academic performance without disrupting the current school schedule.

Who should attend this training?
We recommend a team of 2 or more consisting of: Administrators, Curriculum Coordinators, School Board Members, Classroom Teachers, Physical Education Teachers, Health Educators, District Wellness Committee Members, Parents, PBIS Team Members, School Nurses, Before/After School Coordinators, Community Center Wellness Coordinators and Community Education Coordinators.

How much will it cost?  $25.00

Portage, WI  53901


The training will cover some of the new drugs threat along with other alarming activities of this new generation and what can be done.

Jason Weber, Community Liaison Officer for the Town of Menasha Police Department and nationally recognized drug prevention speaker will be presenting. Jason initiated a coalition that developed a pharmaceutical abuse prevention toolkit called “Good Drugs Gone Bad.” He presented at seminars and distributed the toolkit to over 3,000 people in health care, law enforcement, and education fields in the Midwest and New England states. This program was one of nine that was highlighted at the 2011 SAMHSA Service to Science Academy.


Deputy Pete Ehlert of the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office will focus on why our children are at risk when using social media and the Internet. Deputy Elhert will show how easy it is for a predator to target our kids and the methods they use. Sexting laws will be broken down and you will learn why our children engage in this behavior and don’t think it’s a big deal. Popular apps among youth in our community will also be covered and they will show you how kids get in trouble using these apps. Lastly, he will cover what you can do to help keep our kids safe.

Pete has been a Deputy Sheriff for 15 years with the last thirteen at the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office. He has served in many capacities while working for the Sheriff’s Office including being assigned to the corrections, patrol, GPS and Transport Division, and currently serves as the Community Programs Coordinator for the Sheriff’s Office. Pete also is the DARE Officer for Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office and teaches in 10 schools throughout the County and reaches approximately 750 students per year.

Participants will learn about the new drug and Internet trends facing our youth and communities, and best practices from other communities/schools in combating these threats.

Do you know students who have a story to tell? This is a training for adult facilitators to go back and use with individual or small groups of high school students.

Honest, Open, Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps students look at the story they have been telling themselves, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides them to draft their own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources discovered and used to live life in the way they choose.

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided.  For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

    Both are available at: www.wishschools.org/resources/schoolsbirt.cfm
  • The school implementation plan must be submitted one week prior to training to: Tracy Herlitzke, therlitzke@cesa4.org
  • Initial Training  (Day 1) — Overview of SBIRT, introduction to the requisite skills (Motivational Interviewing), and practice on delivering protocol-guided Brief Intervention services.  Audio tape delivery of Brief Intervention.

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided. For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

  • A requirement of registration is to complete: 1. A Pre-training Reading Assignment, and 2. An initial Implementation Plan
    Both are available at: www.wishschools.org/resources/schoolsbirt.cfm
  • The school implementation plan must be submitted one week prior to training to: Tracy Herlitzke, therlitzke@cesa4.org
  • Initial Training  (Day 1) — Overview of SBIRT, introduction to the requisite skills (Motivational Interviewing), and practice on delivering protocol-guided Brief Intervention services.  Audio tape delivery of Brief Intervention.

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying

PRESENTERS:

  • Christine Kleiman  Program Director, Safe and Healthy Schools Department at CESA #7, Regional Coordinator for Wisconsin Safe and Healthy Schools Center, PBIS Coach and Trainer, and Restorative Practice Trainer.
  • Patricia Kexel  Retired Language Arts teacher and Middle School Guidance Counselor, presently Restorative Practices Trainer and co-founder of Creating Connections. Herb Kohl Fellowship Recipient in 2006

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided.  For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

  • A requirement of registration is to complete: 1. A Pre-training Reading Assignment, and 2. An initial Implementation Plan
    Both are available at: www.wishschools.org/resources/schoolsbirt.cfm

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying

PRESENTERS:

  • Christine Kleiman  Program Director, Safe and Healthy Schools Department at CESA #7, Regional Coordinator for Wisconsin Safe and Healthy Schools Center, PBIS Coach and Trainer, and Restorative Practice Trainer.
  • Patricia Kexel  Retired Language Arts teacher and Middle School Guidance Counselor, presently Restorative Practices Trainer and co-founder of Creating Connections. Herb Kohl Fellowship Recipient in 2006

Traumatized youth often react to frustrations with negative or explosive behaviors that are difficult to anticipate and manage in the classroom. If you’ve found yourself saying, “I didn’t see that coming,” or “They just blew up on me for no reason,” then this workshop will help. Through lecture, video and small group discussion, our full-day workshop will teach psychoeducation, behavioral prevention and early intervention skills for educators in the classroom. You will practice prevention and de-escalation strategies focused on language, body posture, tone of voice and negotiation to help you and your students feel emotionally safer so they can learn.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understand how the “brain’s danger alarm” works and how to identify trauma triggers and re-enactment cycles in the classroom. (Tier 1)
  2. Learn how to use psychoeducation materials classroom-wide to provide language and strategies to manage emotional distress. (Tier 1)
  3. Learn and practice “just-in-time” skills and strategies to reduce the escalation of student negative emotional behaviors. (Tier 2/3)
  4. Create an intervention plan specific to a trauma (Tier 3)
  5. Integrate trauma-model interventions with the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. (Tier 1)
  6. Learn how to practice and implement mindfulness activities to improve student focus and decrease reactive emotions (Tier 1)

TARGET AUDIENCE: Teachers, administrators, support staff, and pupil services.

Do you know students who have a story to tell? This is a training for adult facilitators to go back and use with individual or small groups of high school students.

Honest, Open, Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps students look at the story they have been telling themselves, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides them to draft their own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources discovered and used to live life in the way they choose.

This workshop is not intended to train all school staff, but prepares teams of pupil services staff, health educators, and administrators to plan,prevent, and intervene at their schools. Action planning is integrated into all phases of the training program. A model workshop for all school staff is provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring their suicide crisis response plans for discussion and revision.

Participants will:

  • Understand the prevalence of youth suicide
  • Discuss legal requirements
  • Gain knowledge and skills to improve classroom instruction at the middle and high school level
  • Create a local action plan based on a 3-tiered prevention and intervention model to reduce suicide among youth

What is SBIRT?
SBIRT offers an efficient, evidence-based, and comprehensive service to address selected behavioral health concerns among adolescents. The service begins with administering a standardized Screening instrument.  For students who show moderate or high risk results, a Brief Intervention (BI) is conducted. The BI is delivered with motivational interviewing and is protocol-guided.  For those students who show high risk concerns and who do not respond to the BI, a Referral to Treatment may be initiated.

Why SBIRT in Schools?

  • Evidence-based for addressing student alcohol/drug involvement and evidence-informed for addressing a range of other behavioral concerns, including attendance, classroom behavior, and mental health
  • Student-centered and strength-based
  • Teens rate the service with high levels of satisfaction
  • Provides a Tier II and Tier III practice with PBIS
  • Response-to-Intervention can be ascertained by using baseline and follow-up screening results

Training Description

  • A requirement of registration is to complete: 1. A Pre-training Reading Assignment, and 2. An initial Implementation Plan
    Both are available at: www.wishschools.org/resources/schoolsbirt.cfm

Do you know students who have a story to tell? This is a training for adult facilitators to go back and use with individual or small groups of high school students.

Honest, Open, Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps students look at the story they have been telling themselves, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides them to draft their own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources discovered and used to live life in the way they choose.

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying

PRESENTERS:

  • Christine Kleiman  Program Director, Safe and Healthy Schools Department at CESA #7, Regional Coordinator for Wisconsin Safe and Healthy Schools Center, PBIS Coach and Trainer, and Restorative Practice Trainer.
