On Saturday, January 26, from 9:30-Noon, Mitch Beck Professor & Chair of the Dept. of Special Education will offer a training for all of our volunteers.
The training will deal with how to address kids’ behavioral issues. The major focus will be on understanding power struggles and how we get caught in them. We will also discuss how to change these conflict cycles into coping cycles.
The training will be held at the Purple House, 26 Clark St.
