Anti-Bias & Inclusion Training

The Council of Community Education Committees of Northern Lakes College is pleased to sponsor an online workshop.

February 3, 2023 - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

In our increasingly diverse world, we must educate ourselves about unconscious bias and discrimination and how this may present in systems, policies, and daily interactions so that we can reduce its effects. This workshop will define some key terms, and viewers will learn strategies to identify bias in themselves, reduce the influence of bias in their contexts, and create inclusive environments. Participants will also learn to talk to others about race and diversity, including children.

Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

The session is live-online and will not be recorded.

Participants need access to the internet, headphones, and a mic. Attending from a campus is an option.

Anxiety in Children and Youth - Practical Intervention Strategies

This session is now full. Add your name below to be on the waitlist.

The CCEC is sponsoring this full-day training free of charge to all participants.

March 3, 2023 - 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Workshop Description:
Childhood and adolescence are critical times for emotional and psychological development. During these stages, anxiety patterns can begin that continue into adulthood. Anxiety represents our body’s natural alarm system, signaling the possibility of danger. When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn’t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress. Having caregivers who are equipped to support and teach children and youth skills for managing and interrupting their anxiety patterns is crucial for early intervention. This workshop will provide a structure for understanding how anxiety works in the nervous system. Participants will also learn a diverse range of skills that can be taught and practiced with children and youth. These skills are designed to decrease anxiety and expand the capacity for managing emotions and anxious thought patterns.

Topics Include:
• Anxiety and its Natural Purpose
• The Link to Caregiver Response
• The Nature of Stress, Fear, and Anxiety
• Understanding the Stress Response System
• Statistics: Prevalence and Trends
• Overview of Working with Anxiety
• Body-Oriented Anxiety Reduction Strategies
• Mind-Body Anxiety Reduction Strategies
• Cognitive-Behavioural Anxiety Reduction Strategies
• Building a New Pattern: Steps Toward Change

Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

The session is live-online and will not be recorded. Participants need access to the internet, headphones, and a mic. Attending from a campus is an option.
