Workshop Overview
Parents and school personnel can be strong allies in ensuring school is a safe and pleasant learning environment for everyone. Unsettling news has surfaced in recent years about the use of restraint and seclusion techniques in classrooms around the United States. These practices have resulted in trauma, injury and even death of children as young as five years old. This day-long workshop will help parents, advocates and teachers understand how to work together to prevent and eliminate the dangerous and traumatizing practices of restraint and seclusion.

Learning Objectives
– What seclusion and restraint are
– Long and short term effects of seclusion and restraint use on children, staff, and child and adult witnesses
– The prevalence and high cost of their uses
– Alternative interventions that are safe and positive, and why they work
– What is known about individual and system-wide prevention and how to implement prevention strategies
