Healing Children

Behavior Management Specialists

At Healing Children, LLC, our mission is for all children to be emotionally healthy, happy, mature, and responsible. We believe this is achievable for any child, even if they suffer from mental health, emotional, or behavioral disorders. 

Extensive Behavior management Experience

We hope to accomplish this mission by providing valuable and timely information, training, consultation, and counseling services to parents, educators, administrators, and mental health providers. We have worked as both educators and mental health professionals for decades. 

We have trained academically and clinically, but we have also used our techniques, strategies, and processes actively in the field with measured success. Our experience gives us a unique perspective on what it is like to work closely with children of all ages, especially when a child is demonstrating challenging or extreme behavior in the classroom or other school settings. Our techniques have been applied to students from toddler age to the end of high school.

Improving Behavior in Schools

We have seen how improper behavior management can affect learning environments; it can increase the working stress of teachers and staff, lower retention rates of teachers, and can create new behavior challenges in students who were previously never a concern. Improper behavior management can strain the relationships between teachers, administrators, and parents and disrupt the essential functions of a school environment, namely, student learning. 

Improving learning in schools starts with creating a conducive environment for learning. Through proper classroom behavior management, positive parenting solutions, robust behavior policies, and a measured team approach, we believe a happy, healthy, mature, and responsible walk through life is achievable for any child.

Behavior Management Services

Managing behavior in the classroom is a challenge. If we add the rigorous demands of the teaching job, the guilt of taking time away from other students, the stress of meeting every government-mandated benchmark, and the complexities of navigating parent involvement, the job of a teacher or administrator is incredibly taxing. It can weigh on our personal relationships, delay and strain self-care and mental health, and impede our ultimate goal, which is to provide the best learning opportunities for our students. It is no surprise that recent studies have shown that people working in education feel overwhelmed.

We aim to empower teachers, administrators, and parents with the information, confidence, and experience to encourage students to grow into happy, healthy, responsible adults through positive behavior management. We hope to improve behavior management through the following services:

Our growing library of online courses breaks student behavior into manageable pieces. This allows a teacher, parents, or administrative team to follow along at a pace that fits a demanding schedule. With a demanding school year and schedule, it’s difficult to budget time for making lesson plans, focus on grading papers, or even sneak away for a lunch break. While we know this isn’t easy, the online learning platform allows teachers to regain control of their professional development progress and build a better classroom environment.

We have trained individual schools, school behavior management teams, and entire school districts. Our experience ranges from managing behaviors exhibited by children with diagnosed emotional and behavioral disorders and employing specific behavior management techniques for extreme or unique cases to developing policy and behavior intervention plans for challenging students and unique behavioral problems. We structure our trainings to be unique to the school, team, or district and the unique challenges faced by that team at that particular time. This way, your behavior management teams can walk away with actionable steps to facilitate better behavior.

We have found this to be very effective for training new teachers and developing a culture of good classroom management. All of our courses qualify for teacher professional development college credit in dozens of states across the United States.

Traci Glover and Leena Weaver lead public behavior management trainings for professionals working in education. These seminars provide foundational information for understanding the complexities of behavioral issues. Topics can range from the sources of behavior concern exhibited in students, the components of building a prosocial learning environment for students, to very specific actionable research-based behavior management techniques and strategies for classroom settings.

These trainings often involve group work between professionals, sharing information between peers, and mutual growth and development in the pursuit of an enriched classroom experience.

The teacher-student relationship is one of the bedrock relationships in child learning. Sometimes there are unique situations where a plan is needed for the behavior exhibited in just one student, for example. Or the consequences stemming from a particular student-to-student interaction has presented a challenge for the whole class. Whatever the specific challenge may be, stay calm; we’ve got your back. Our behavior experts can develop a plan to meet your unique needs, whether it’s for just one class, an entire classroom, or a district.

We cannot begin discussing behavior management strategies without talking about parenting. Even more foundational than student-teacher relationship is the parent-child relationship. And while educators cannot be fully responsible for what happens to the child at home, involving parents wherever necessary is a critical part of developing proper adult-child relationships with proper boundaries that encourages students to grow, own behavior through accountability, follow class rules and mature into age-appropriate development.

In unique circumstances, we will offer counseling services for families that wish to find resolutions for problems stemming from the home environment. Often, examining the home environment can help improve poor behavior at school. Several things could be happening that would require a much deeper look at the relationships in the home environment. We handle these situations with discretion and a very high standard of care. Every family is unique, and the problems facing each family are also unique.

Where do I start?

What is effective behavior management?

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all strategy for reducing disruptive behavior or promoting positive behavior in students. Research shows that good behavior starts with relationships. Relationships are the foundation for helping students learn how to grow, mature, and develop social skills in a positive way. This includes relationships between individual students, relationships between students and teachers, relationships between teachers and administrative teams, relationships between students and parents, and the relationship each person in the equation has with him or herself. Understanding the driving factors and emotional components involved in each relationship as well as the interactions between people, lays the foundation for productive learning time, the promotion of prosocial behavior, and a more deeply connected cooperative classroom community. This community is what we call the Healing Environment.

While relationships are the foundation, many other factors are involved in creating a healing environment that facilitates positive behavior management. Once a healing environment is established, effective behavior management strategies and techniques can be employed to teach students classroom rules, allow students to learn accountability, promote positive relationships, help students find self-worth and a place among their peers, and ultimately allow teachers to continue teaching.

If you don’t know where to start, we encourage you to read our blog posts, sign up for our newsletter, and listen to our podcast. Should you find those resources to be helpful, consider taking one of our online classes to increase your depth of behavioral knowledge.
