How Many Times Have We Heard [After a Tragedy] “We Knew Since Elementary School That He/She Had a Problem”
Description: We all understand the importance of the prevention and intervention of antisocial behaviour and other forms of verbal and physical violence. In this workshop presented by Dr. Leena K. Augimeri, participants will learn about evidence-based early intervention and early risk identification for children in the middle years. In addition, participants will acquire the skills to effectively rate level of risk/need based on the Early Assessment Risk Lists (EARLs) and the success of the comprehensive SNAP model in helping children with externalizing and/or co-morbidity issues and their families.
Spend a day with Dr. Augimeri and learn:
• What is EARL (Early Assessment Risk Lists)
• How can EARL be used to assess violence potential in Children?
• What are the risk factors that indicate future violence?
• What do we need to know about children who engage in at-risk antisocial/disruptive behaviour?
• How to successfully utilize this Assessment and Clinical Risk Management framework with Children.
• Referral mechanisms and communication protocols to connect children with appropriate community services in a timely manner.
This training is offered as a Webinar, or as an in-class workshop.
