Project Highlights

  • SEDNET Region 13 in collaboration with Hernando County’s Exceptional Student Education Department will be hosting a free one day workshop featuring Dr. Ross Greene, the author of The Explosive Child and Lost at School. Dr. Greene will be sharing his empirically supported model, Collaborative & Proactive Solutions – Understanding and Helping Students with Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Challenges. The CPS model has transformed thinking and approaches in schools, inpatient psychiatric units, residential facilities, and juvenile detention centers. In addition, this model has been associated with dramatic reductions in discipline referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and restraints. This workshop will take place on September 25, 2015 at The Grace World Outreach Church (20366 Cortez Blvd) in Brooksville, Florida from 8:00-4:00.

  • SEDNET Region 10 is really excited about the Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) initiative and implementation throughout Broward. Over the past few months, youth advocates, foster care parents and prevention staff within the community, have participated in YMHFA training. This past spring, paraprofessionals at one of the EBD Center Schools completed YMHFA training. The buzz about the impact of YMHFA has been so high that SEDNET has been asked to come back and train the rest of the paraprofessionals at the school. Principals and community members are excited about this training because of the impact it has had and will continue to have on youth and families excelling in home, community and school. This is such an amazing time to be a part of Mental Health and Schools.
