Regional Social, Emotional, Behavioral Consultant
The Region A Partnership for Children (RAPC) offers Social-Emotional Training and Technical Assistance that includes free, on-the-job, on-site training and technical assistance for early childcare and education professionals to promote positive social and emotional development and to prevent and intervene with challenging behaviors in the classroom.
Through training from RAPC’s Consultant, teachers discover up to date methodologies and best practices for promoting healthy, positive social and emotional development, advancing professional teaching skills for managing classroom behavior, and learning about how to promote positive classroom interactions. Training participants may earn on-the-job Contact Hour Credits (CHCs), and Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) in some authorized courses, through the Southwestern Child Development Commission. The Consultant is also available to train teachers or other staff how to formulate goals and activities for individual children who need extra help or intervention.
Through technical assistance, childcare professionals may choose among a variety of teaching activities and strategies to help children learn social and emotional skills in everyday routines, and to involve parents by finding common ground to address behavioral challenges. The Consultant coaches teachers to renew positive energy with new ideas for managing every day challenges, for teaching children to make friends and interacting effectively in social settings, for clarifying expectations and rules and routines, for teaching problem-solving, and for helping children to calm themselves when angry or upset.
The director or administrator of the childcare and education program for which services are provided is asked to complete and sign an Agreement with The Region A Partnership for Children before proceeding with these services.
