In June 2020, the KSDE TASN School Mental Health Initiative (SMHI) is hosting a three-day "School Mental Health Implementation Workshop" in Wichita, KS. This workshop requires that a Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) and one partnering district attend together as a District-Community Leadership Team (DCLT).
On days one and two of this three-day workshop, DCLTs will be guided through a structured planning process to enhance cross-system collaboration and implementation of effective school mental health practices. On day three, Bruce D. Perry, MD, Ph.D. (author of Born for Love and The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog) will share a neurodevelopmental approach for supporting children and adolescents impacted by trauma and discuss implications for education and community mental health partnerships.
Days One and Two
- Assess cross-system school mental health processes and practices.
- Identify DCLT priorities related to school mental health processes and practices.
- Develop Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound (SMART) goal(s) to enhance cross-system school mental health processes and practices.
- Identify key principles of neurodevelopment crucial for understanding the role of experience in defining the functional and physical organization of the brain.
- Describe emerging clinical and research findings in maltreated children that suggest the negative impact of abuse, neglect, and trauma on brain development.
- Outline clinical and educational implications of a neurodevelopmental approach to child maltreatment.
- Discuss the role of public policy, preventative practices, assessment, interventions, and classroom considerations in the context of the impact of maltreatment on children's emotional, behavioral, cognitive, social, and physical health.
