Hi folks: I have arranged for SIVA to offer our team the SIVA training, specifically designed for online teaching and learning context.
The training is offered by the SIVA team from https://www.sivatraining.ca/our-programs/the-siva-program/
Friday January 19 9am - 3:30 pm - online in Zoom
Friday February 9 9am - 3:30 pm - online in Zoom
Description of the program:
SIVA (Supporting Individuals through Valued Attachments) is a holistic, relationship-based model that effectively utilizes collaboration, goal-direction, self-management and healthy empowerment to strengthen relationships and create safety with individuals with challenging behaviours and complex needs. The SIVA philosophy and guiding principles therein inspire problem solving, decision-making and systemic change in how programs and families establish and maintain safety. The SIVA model is further represented by clear and concise relationship-based strategies of support that participants are able to apply immediately upon completion of the training. Educators, mental professionals, direct support staff and families have embraced the SIVA model as a refreshing alternative to crisis-focused programs and a reminder of the power of healthy relationships.
If there are any schools, teams, teachers who wish to receive this certification please reach out to Alison.Hancox@IgniteCentre.ca so that we can coordinate your attendance. There is a charge and depending on numbers I can advise the cost will be somewhere between $100 - $300. We have 11 registered already. We can accommodate 9 more.
