    Register Here! 

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

    Welcome to Advanced Classroom Management: Children as Change Agents, a course geared primarily for professionals (e.g., regular or special educators, instructional assistants, school psychologist, counselors) serving children and youths presenting behavior problems in the school or community.  This course focuses on cognitive and cognitive-behavioral interventions (often lumped together under the rubric "social skills") with an emphasis on teaching students how to change and manage their own behavior.  Since previous knowledge and understanding of traditional behavioral (operant) concepts and strategies is required, it is strongly recommended that you take an introductory behavior management course to learn the basic terms and concepts of behavior management prior to taking this “advanced” course.
     
    OBJECTIVES

    As a result of this course, participants will demonstrate their ability to:

    • Know the terminology in the areas of behavior management, self-management and cognitive-behavior modification
    • Know the relative merits and limitations of the behavioral and social-cognitive approaches to behavior management
    • Understand the rationale for teaching students how to self-manage their behavior  
    • Understand the roles that cognitions and emotions play in the development of behavior problems
    • Apply the self-management strategies covered in the course to the behavior problems of their own students 
    • Diagnose behavior problems and assess the efficacy of self-management interventions
    • Increase the probability of students using self-management strategies in and outside of the classroom setting

    LOCATION: Loyola Hall, Rm. 160

    Workshop Fee: $336

     

     

     

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

    As we see in the media and our day-to-day lives, the world is rife with examples of successful, but often uninspiring or even infamous, leaders, and entrepreneurs--but what about those extraordinary, impactful individuals who seem to transcend this paradigm--who have wildly successful careers, who are healthy and balanced, who have happy and productive relationships, and who are making a positive difference in the world?
     
    The secret to their success isn't magic--in fact,t here are specific habits and systems that exceptional people have in common--and, even better, their methodology can be learned. In this workshop, we'll discuss the science behind exceptional people with the aim of applying and sustaining habits and systems in our own lives that will help us to stand out from the crowd and accelerate our personal and professional success. Areas of focus include health and wellness, finances, ethics, relationships, career and achievement, and community impact.
     
    Learning Objectives
    • Understand the Optimize-Visualize-Strategize model & explain how it can be applied to their lives.
    • Identify one habit/system from the workshop that they have already put into practice in their daily lives.
    • Identify 3 to 5 additional habits/systems from the workshop that they plan to put into practice over the next three to six months.
    • Produce and present (optional) vision boards for their lives & identify their top three goals, including mesures for each goal.
    • Articulate a strategic plan (including timelines, measures, & tracking systems) for how to achieve at least one of their chosen goals.

Festival of Lights: Santa Clara University Choirs
  • Friday, Dec 5, 2014 at 7:30 PM

     A festival of lights can have many religious and cultural meanings for people across the world. The Jewish holiday, Hanukkah and the Hindu holiday, Diwali (Tihar), both draw on the imagery of lighting lamps or candles. Culturally, many cities celebrate the change of seasons and the lengthening of days by lighting landmarks in vast and complex displays, and here at Santa Clara University, the Festival of Lights performance has marked the beginning of the holiday season for many for over a decade. The Festival of Lights program draws on many traditions, those formed here and those celebrated across the world, as it explores the changes of the seasons, a variety of holiday traditions, and concludes with a stunning arrangement of Silent Night sung by candle light in the beautiful Santa Clara Mission Church.

SIG Aging Gracefully

    Aging Gracefully

    Let’s explore aging together. We’ll talk about common problems, read the research on aging, shatter the myths of old age (physical, mental, social, and legal), and gain new insights that will help us make aging- related decisions. We’ll share our experiences, ask questions, discuss, and learn from the members of the group.

    The goal is to create a community where we can talk openly and help each other. 
     
    Our next meeting will be on Thursday, July 31 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM in Loyola Hall 160.
