The Program – For Teachers

The Program – For Teachers

The Insights Intervention workshop for teachers and mental health personnel is a two day program that includes group activities, role playing, and assignments. The teacher version emphasizes classroom management while the clinician version focuses on how concepts and strategies from INSIGHTS can be used with child and parent referrals. A generic outline of the content of the workshop is listed below. We recommend that the second session is held two or three weeks after the first.
