    A FREE Behavioral Training for Educators, Youth Therapists and Social Workers.

    Research has demonstrated that children exposed to traumatic environments are increasingly more likely to engage in deviant behavior and suffer from adverse health consequences.  However, through the application of behavioral supports and the development of environmentally enriching community interventions negative outcomes that come of trauma can be diminished or event completely negated.  
    These simple, cheap, and easy interventions, known as behavioral kernels, have been demonstrated to reduce ADHD, increase socialization, decrease drug use, increase community identity, decrease violence, reduce depression, and promote positive pro-social home environments.  

    The goal of this workshop is to teach you these kernels including the means by which they work, how to apply change for individuals, entire families, and to integrate these simple programs into your daily interactions with those you serve.
