Coaching Conversations: Motivational Interviewing as a Strategy to Prompt Reflection and Practice Change11/01/2023Unpacking CoachingView

As a coach do you ever feel stuck? Do you ever wonder how your conversations might help facilitate increased practice change? Do you ever consider how you might be able to get more buy-in from practitioners for Pyramid implementation? Changing practice can be hard. Practitioners are mostly likely to change their practice when changes align with their own values and goals. Motivational interviewing can support practitioners to reflect on their own values and goals. These strategies can also support practitioners to reflect on their ambivalence about practice change. This webinar explores strategies such as asking open ended questions, validating, offering affirmations, reflective listening, and evoking practitioners’ ideas about change.

A Conversation About Integrating Trauma Informed Care in the Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavior Support Plan Process03/17/2023Within the FrameworkView

Description

Young children are particularly vulnerable to the impact of traumatic experiences. In fact, traumatic experience can alter young childrens’ brain development. Young children who have experienced trauma may demonstrate a variety of emotional, behavioral and/or physical responses. Their responses to their experience depends on a variety of factors including: the nature, frequency, and intensity of the traumatic event(s); the child’s temperament, age, and development; the child’s previous experiences and the support the child and family receive. Trauma is a factor that must be considered as we develop behavior interventions and supports for young children. Join this webinar for a discussion on how trauma might be conceptualized, considered, and integrated into the functional behavioral assessment and individualized behavior support process.

Help and Hope:  Combining PBS and Optimism Training for Parents of Young Children with Challenging Behavior10/05/2022Within the FrameworkView

Description

Have you encountered families who feel that there is no hope to change their child’s behavior?

The reduction in negative thinking and interpretation of events by parents has been documented as influencing parent behavior change, including enhanced implementation fidelity of behavior support strategies, resulting in improved child and family outcomes.   Learn about the Positive Family Intervention research project and the cognitive behavior skill training procedures, also known as optimism training, that were utilized to teach parents how to identify situations prompting negative self-talk, specific beliefs that create barriers to intervention, the consequences of these beliefs, and the practice of using disputation and substitution. An application of optimism training will be shared that demonstrates how the reduction of parent pessimism helped to promote parent confidence, improved parent and child efficacy, and influenced the successful delivery and fidelity of PBS interventions for their child at home.   Future considerations of adapting optimism training for use within collaborative teams to foster increased teacher confidence, persistence, and implementation fidelity of behavior supports for young children in school settings will also be proposed for discussion.

Join this webinar to hear more about trauma informed care, the Pyramid Model, and how these approaches support resilience for all children in early intervention, including those who have experienced trauma. This webinar will highlight the experiences of two Early Intervention programs, and will share resources you can use in your own programs.

Coaching With Intention: Making the Most of the PBC Cycle09/16/2020Unpacking CoachingView

When using PBC, coaches use strategies to build collaborative partnerships with coachees, conduct focused observations, guide reflection and provide feedback to guide coachees in meeting their professional goals. For coaching to work, there are specific evidence-based practices coaches use. In addition, coaches must learn to provide different levels of support based on individual coachees’ needs. Fidelity, or the ability to use these evidence-based coaching practices the way they are meant to be used, is essential to delivering coaching effectively. For coaching to be effective, it must be delivered with fidelity. In this webinar, panelists will discuss the tools you can use to ensure you are using PBC with fidelity.

All Hands on Deck: Defining the Role of Mental Health Consultation and Supports Within the Coaching Context
All Hands on Deck: Defining the Role of Mental Health Consultation and Supports Within the Coaching Context04/01/2020Unpacking CoachingView

Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC) is emerging as an evidence-based intervention for supporting young children’s social and emotional development and addressing challenging behaviors. IECMHC aims to improve the ability of staff, families, programs, and systems to prevent, identify, treat and reduce the impact of mental health problems among children from birth to age 6 and their families. IECMHC occurs within the context of a collaborative relationship between a consultant with mental health expertise and early care and education provider, and/or a family member (Cohen & Kaufmann, 2000). In this webinar, we explain the relationship and role between IECMH consultants and Pyramid Model coaches. We also discuss how coaches can identify when they might need the support of a mental health consultant, and how to locate resources when the staff, families, or children they are working with require access to mental health supports.

Often times coaches are faced with issues of gaining trust and buy-in from practitioners who feel overwhelmed with implementing new skills due to behaviors in the classroom they find challenging. The Behavior Incident Report System (BIRS) was developed by the National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations, and can be used as a coaching tool at the classroom level to support practitioners in understanding the behavior that is occurring in their classroom (e.g frequency, behavior type, motivation and responses to the behavior). This webinar reviews the BIRS, and how it can be used as an effective coaching tool to support practitioners in individual classrooms. Discussions address supports that might be helpful for coaches to use when helping practitioners reflect on the types of supports already present in the classroom, and what may need to be implemented.

The National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations has developed a framework, practices and tools to support implementation of the Pyramid Model by Part C, Early Intervention programs. This webinar describes the framework, critical elements, practices, and fidelity tools that can be used to support program-wide implementation and early interventionists’ practices. The program-wide implementation framework and critical elements were designed to be implemented within the multiple types of service delivery models used across Early Intervention Programs and states. The early interventionists’ practices are focused on building families’ confidence and competence in supporting their child’s social emotional development. This webinar may be helpful for Part C state leaders, program leaders, and early interventionists to identify which program wide elements are already in place, which Pyramid Model practices their staff are already using well, and next steps for their programs or individual goals.
