OU hosts workshop on crisis intervention in the classroom
Oakland University’s School of Education and Human Services (SEHS) is offering “Crisis Intervention in the Classroom,” a four-week seminar scheduled for 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on July 21 and 28, August 4 and 11.
The program is designed for educators, administrators, school counselors and support staff. Participants will learn to recognize warning signs and symptoms of mental illness and behavior. Other topics to be discussed include defusing disruptive behavior, setting enforceable limits with students, effectively responding to a crisis situation and physical safety skills.
Kathleen Young, R.N., a certified non-violent crisis intervention instructor, will lead the Saturday workshop. Young is a Clinical Manager for Behavioral Health, a division of St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital of Macomb. She has served as a psychiatric nurse clinician, staff development coordinator for mental healthcare programs and direct-care provider for adults and children with mental illnesses and chemical dependency.
Cost of the workshop is $295, if enrolled for continuing education units (CEUs). There is an option to take the course for two university graduate credits. The deadline to register is Thursday, July 12.
