Vermont-NEA hosts the only ESP Conference in Vermont.  This year’s theme "Safe Schools For All" is a response to a growing number of issues in our schools from students coming to school who have experienced several traumatic events, to staff safety issues resulting from students who have difficulty controlling themselves, to students questioning their sexual identity, and so much more.  We hope that each ESP will look at the sessions (many full day) and determine what session will provide you with information and skills that will support a safer school environment for all.

This conference is for Vermont-NEA ESP members only.

Directions for Registering: If you have come to the ESP Conference in the past two years, you already have an account on Sched.com. Your login is your email.

Responsive Relationships: Tools for Building Connections and Supporting Students with Challenging Behaviors

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

This hands on, interactive workshop is designed to build attendees’ intervention toolbox. The tools will include: an overall understanding of SEL (social emotional learning), using consistent and supportive language to strengthen relationships with students, conflict resolution skills, self-regulation strategies, and case studies to illustrate these practices in use in schools.

Be prepared to participate, engage, and build a bigger toolbox to take back to your school!
