National Train-the-Trainer Program

Certification Training:

 Assessment of the Potentially Dangerous Student (PDS)

Sponsored by:

 

LOCATION:   Booker T. Washington High School           MAP

 

Two Day - Train-the-Trainer

 

Keys announces the most anticipated, relevant and requested National Pilot Training Program as outlined in the Columbine Report, namely the

Train-the-Trainers: Certification Training - Assessing the Potentially Dangerous Student (PDS).

 

Currently Keys has required their Mental Health Violence Prevention Experts to conduct this one-of-a-kind training.  Due to the increasing demand on Keys staff to train individuals in the Assessing of the PDS, Keys is offering this two day Train-the-trainer event to selected, qualified individuals.

 

Click here to Register for training.

 

This is the most essential training available to schools and youth workers today. With the ever increasing frequency of school shootings, it is time that we do something about it. Building upon National Level research by the Department of Education, Office of Juvenile Justice, the FBI, the Secret Service and others, Keys' has developed a most unique approach to the detection and prevention of School Violence. It looks at "Why" we miss these students, "What" to do to identify them, and "How" to provide help for them.  There is an emphasis on identification, assessment and training of early and imminent warning signs of the PDS. This training provides schools a component of the Risk Assessment Team Model that meets the guidelines of the Commission Report on Columbine for effectively identifying students who may need immediate help. Unlike training seminars that merely provide theory and information, this training will produce Certification and a Train-the-Trainer Model for instituting/using the Keys To Safe Schools.com Assessment Tool, a unique device that identifies students in need of help. But schools should not stop with training Assessment Teams but should take the next step and provide an in-service for ALL staff in identification of the Potentially Dangerous Students.

Bullying - BULLYING STOPS when RESPECT BEGINS (c) 

Two day Train-the-Trainer

 

LOCATION:  711 Muscatel Dr. Carlsbad, NM 88220   MAP

School students have reported an increase in bullying with severe consequences to themselves and their schools. As if this were not enough, bullying has been identified in a national study as a factor in the recent school shootings. At Columbine a group of school athletes bullied the two boys who later became shooters. Almost any group in anyone's school could be the "bullies" and and it would be accurate at some point in time. Bullying can be physical, emotional or social. Keys' Bullying Program offers four modules to fully address the different aspects of this complex issue.  These are:
 

  1. The Victim: How to handle being bullied by a peer.

  2. The Bully: How to identify the need for bullying and better ways to meet that need.

  3. The School: How to deal with both sides of bullying in a productive manner.

  4. The Parent: How to recognize signs that your child is being bullied, how to help your child cope with bullies and how to interact with the school about a bullying situation.

CRISIS ACTION TRAINING & WORKSHOP
Do you have a crisis plan or have you exercised your crisis plan lately?
This training draws on a wealth of national research and years of professional experience to develop a "Template" for schools to follow in developing a Crisis Response/Action Plan tailored to their specific needs and situation. The Template and the Crisis Plans produced by it have been reviewed by state officials and meet the requirements established by regulation. The most effective way to using this Template is as part of a Crisis Action Training and Workshop that involves the staff at Keys facilitating a meeting of community stakeholders on the first day to determine the needs of the First Responders. The Template is used by the Keys staff to guide the community leaders (the first day), and the schools Crisis Team (the second day), through the steps of developing and publishing a fully functional Plan.

One day Facilitator Training

Learn to spot anger before it boils over into an uncontrolled outburst.  Learn to align energy and redirect rather than oppose.  This training is based on National Research and a must training for those that work with children, adolescents and young adults. It is a "practical" training that teaches how to recognize anger, manage anger and de-escalate volatile situations in the classroom. It trains the Facilitator three levels of controlling anger and that is to first control themselves, then control the situation, and finally to control the student. This training introduces Huan Ju, The Art of Redirection. It provides physical and non-physical means to stop or break up a fight with minimal risk to all involved. The techniques taught protect the dignity of the combatants, which minimizes the probability of retaliation or recurrence.  The unique character of this system is that it is NOT pain inducing, it maintains dignity, it is geared toward students in school rather than adults in residential settings a - unlike other trainings methods.

 

Take a break from the dreary February and join us in Sunny Ft. Myers, Florida for this excellent training.
