1 How to Align SEL, PBIS, and RJ to Provide a Coherent Network of Support for Our Students David Osher, Ph. D.
2 Some Overarching Thoughts Build asset and protective factorsReduce or eliminate risk factorsThe importance of:Youth- and family-driven approachesBeing culturally and linguistically competentAddressing and eliminating disparitiesCreating conditions where students are on track to thrive – not just on trackBuild Staff, school, and system proficiency and capacity

13 Distinguishing the differences between SEL, PBIS, RJ.
14 PBIS A multi-tiered framework, not a specific curriculum Behavior and Discipline Referrals are the main metricsBehavioral interventions that include positive interventions are in the DNA
15 PBIS Implementation Practices Positive Behavior Support In Schools4/14/2017PBIS Implementation PracticesTrain and support a representative teamSet time to plan and continuously improveSet school wide expectationsSet a plan to teach expected behaviorSet a plan to recognize expected behavior and actively superviseProvide firm but fair behavioral correctionsUse data (student and staff behavior) to make decisions and give/seek feedback to/from staffJeffrey Sprague, Ph.D.

17 Six Basic Recommendations for Implementing PBIS Never stop doing what already worksAlways look for the smallest change that will produce the largest effectAvoid defining a large number of goalsDo a small number of things wellDefine what you will do with operational precisionDo not add something new without also defining what you will stop doing to make the addition possible.Horner

19 Emotional Intelligence Framework Self AwarenessSocial AwarenessSelf ManagementRelationship ManagementPositive Impact on OthersEmotional Intelligence – Goleman Model. Most elements of every emotional intelligence model fit within these four generic domains: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management.Citation: Goleman, Daniel (2011). The Brain and Emotional Intelligence: New Insights (Kindle Locations 51-54). More Than Sound LLC. Kindle Edition.Based on Daniel Goleman and Linda Lantieri
20 Responsible decision-making Core CompetenciesSelf-awarenessSelf-managementSocialEmotionalLearningResponsible decision-makingSocial and emotional learning is the process for acquiring skills, knowledge and attitudes to recognize and manage emotions, demonstrate care and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions and handle challenging situations effectively. Research now clearly shows that SEL provides the foundation for improved social, health, behavioral and academic outcomes (more about that in a moment). Developing these skills is a lifelong process and therefore relevant to Pre-K – 12 and beyond. SEL helps children and adults develop the fundamental social and emotional skills needed for life effectiveness -- the skills we all need to handle ourselves, our relationships and our tasks effectively and ethically.SEL is an approach to education that promotes these competencies through two primary approaches or focuses:explicit classroom-based instruction of these skills, andthe creation of safe, caring, well-managed learning environments where students feel safe, cared for and are engaged in learning. These same environments provide opportunities where these skills can be learned, practiced and reinforced throughout the day.Research indicates that these skills can be taught, and taught by in schools of every type for students of every background.The dotted lines on this model are used to group self-management and self-awareness together and to group social awareness and relationship skills together. This makes for three, rather than five, competencies: 1) self-awareness and self-management; 2) social awareness and relationships; and 3) responsible decision making.Citation: (2008) CASEL Tool 2 - SEL PowerPoint Presentation11.ppt slide #4(PowerPoint Presentation entitled “Social and Emotional Learning for School and Life Success”)Social awarenessRelationship skillsCitation: (2008) CASEL Tool 2 - SEL PowerPoint Presentation11.ppt slide #4(PowerPoint Presentation entitled “Social and Emotional Learning for School and Life Success”)20
21 SEL Approaches Explicit skills instruction Direct Constructivist Curriculum integrationTeacher instructional practicesProgramming beyond the classroom
22 Developing Social and Emotional Skills Sequenced, Active, Focused, Explicit (SAFE)Adults and students model SEL skills and discuss relevant situationsDevelopmentally/culturally competent instruction and community-building activitiesOpportunities for students to contribute to their class, school, and community
23 SEL the Environment: Safe and supportive schools provide students with: Physical & psychological safetyA sense of belonging & connection to othersA sense of being a capable, worthy person
24 Core principles of Community building from an SEL Program (CSC) • Actively cultivate respectful, supportive relationships among and between students, parents, and school staff • Provide regular opportunities for collaboration and service to others • Provide regular opportunities for influence and self-direction • Emphasize common values, goals, and norms
25 Restorative Practices Focus on Relationships First, and Rules Second,Staff and pupils act towards each other in a helpful and nonjudgmental way;Adults and students work to understand the impact of their actions on othersCollaborative problem solvingEnhanced sense of personal responsibilityThere are fair processes that allow everyone to learn from any harm that may have been doneAll stakeholders have a voiceResponses to difficult behavior have positive outcomes for everyoneStrategic plans for restoration/reparation
26 Characteristics of Restorative Schools Educators are models of restorative practicePhysical environment promotes an ethos of careEmotional environment promotes an ethos of careSchool policies and practices focus on restorationConflict resolutionFlexible policiesDifferentiated disciplineJeff Sprague
27 Approaches to Discipline Internal or ExternalRelationship based or exclusionaryPunitive or restorative and educationalReactive or Proactive
28 Some Simple Minded Distinctions PBIS is about preventing adults from doing stupid thingsSEL is abut giving students portable assets when they are confronted by adults and students doing stupid thingsRestorative Justice helps adults and students build maintain and build an including community after stupid things are done
29 Why all three approaches may be needed Behavioral interventions don’t generalizeSome contexts are so out of control that behavioral interventions and mental health interventions are necessary to gain controle.g. The Good Behavior Gamee.g., TurnaroundRestorative justice will work best in a setting the prevents problems and promotes problem soling skills

45 What are districts doing to reduce the fragmentation of these strategies?
46 Work at Three LevelsIntervene Early & Provide Focused Youth Development ActivitiesImplement strategies and provide supports that address risk factors and build protective factors for students at risk for severe academic or behavioral difficulties.Provide Individualized Intensive SupportsProvide coordinated, intensive, sustained, culturally competent, individualized, child- and family- driven and focused services and supports that address needs while building assets.Build a School-wide & Community FoundationSocial Emotional Learning, youth development, caring school climate, positive and proactive approach to discipline, personalized instruction, cultural competence, and strong family engagement.
