Suicide is one of the leading causes of death among students in North America – and the numbers are increasing, unfortunately. Surprisingly, almost half of the students who try to commit suicide will make their first attempt in elementary or middle school. Other than parents or guardians, educators provide the primary adult interaction and influence for many young people, and therefore can play a pivotal role in identifying students who may need help.

ased on the popular AccuTrain seminar Critical Mental Health Challenges, this video program will help teachers, administrators, counselors and para-professionals feel better equipped to intervene with a student who may have lost hope. It uses a dramatized interaction to demonstrate how an educator might best handle the difficult, but critical, conversation with a troubled student.

Understanding Infection control practices for schools is critical for keeping staff and students safe. In this new program, you’ll learn about how common infections are spread, including the COVID-19 virus.  You’ll also understand routes of transmission – including contact, droplet and airborne transmission. You’ll also learn proper handwashing techniques, as well as following practical infection control practices outlined by the Centers for Disease Controls.

Can responsibility be taught? How can educators move from “making” students behave to helping students learn self-management? This is a major, but necessary, paradigm shift – moving from enforcement to a focus on student growth and providing essential life skills. Many students will grasp for any available path to avoid taking responsibility.

These excuses all represent common “exits” that students take o the “Road to Responsibility.”
In this WebRemix, author Larry Thompson will discuss how traditional discipline practices actually allow students to continue using those exits to avoid responsibility.

He will also share six essential practices that will close those exits and help students learn self-management. These six essential practices include:

  • Benefits for Changing Behavior» Clear Expectations
  • Emotional Control
  • Consistency
  • Leadership in Challenging Moments
  • Response-Ability

As a former principal, special needs teacher, regular ed teacher and coach, Mr. Thompson will discuss Responsibility-Centered strategies that will help teachers and administrators keep students in class – and help students learn and grow in the process.
