Expert-Led Courses Provide Training on How to Manage Challenging Behavior in Times of Crisis, Trauma Awareness, and More
For many students, the stress and challenges of the pandemic may have caused regression both socially and emotionally and in terms of their behavior. To support teachers and administrators this school year, Vector Solutions, the leading provider of training and software solutions to help schools make their operations and communities safer, smarter and better, has created a new set of online training courses addressing some of the most common behavioral challenges expected this school year.
The “Back to School Behavior Management Course Bundle” includes 15 evidence-based training courses in the areas of managing challenging student behaviors, key behavioral disabilities, and essential processes and procedures for handling behavior appropriately and safely.
“We’ve heard a lot about the need to tackle pandemic-related ‘learning loss’ this school year, but if we don’t support students’ behavioral, social, and emotional needs, they may not be able to focus on academics,” said Vector Solutions CEO Marc Scheipe. “Our new courses provide valuable training to help teachers and administrators safely address these behaviors and help students focus on learning.”

The Back to School Behavior Management Course Bundle, part of Vector Solutions’ Special Education course offerings, is just one example of the resources the company provides around student safety and wellness, trauma, and mental health. Last year Vector Solutions created a bundle of training courses relating to COVID-19, offered for free in Vector Solutions’ Coronavirus Resource Center. The company also offers a set of Student Safety and Wellness courses for students on topics such as bullying, suicide and digital citizenship and resources such as whitepapers and webinars to help teachers and administrators deal with issues of student mental health and trauma stemming from the pandemic.
