Incredible Years - Teacher Classsroom Management
  • The Teacher Classroom Management program is a prevention program to strengthen teacher classroom management strategies and promote children's prosocial behavior and school readiness (reading skills).
  • It is divided into 5, full day workshops, spread out with time in between each workshop so that teachers have time to practice the new skills they are learning. The program has been shown in control group studies to reduce classroom aggression and noncooperation, and promote peer interaction, school readiness, and enjoyment with school activities. It focuses on ways teachers can effectively collaborate with and support parents' school involvement, and promote home-to-school consistency. 
  • The Teacher Classroom Management Program is useful for teachers, teacher aides, school psychologists, and school counselors.

• 2 Credits Available through VCSU (optional) **Must attend all 5 days to get credit**
