Model Student Assistance Program - Tier II That Works

Washington Masonic Charities is pleased to provide schools and school districts in Washington with the Model Student Assistance Program.

This program of the National Masonic Foundation for Children is an intensive training workshop for educators to learn how to identify, intervene with, and create appropriate referrals for students that may be at risk for substance abuse, depression, suicide or violence. Model Student Assistance training is conducted by Newman/Stecher International, the sole providers of Model Student Assistance Program training. This workshop trains a Core Team of five to eight educators from a school building in how to intervene early and effectively with students that display patterns of behaviors that threaten their success at school.

This program involves practice sessions designed to simulate real events along with presentations on such subjects as: Chemical Dependency; Depression and Suicide;, Conflict, Anger and Violence; Communication Skills and Intervention; Family Dynamics; Enabling; Life Skills Development; Treatment and Aftercare; and Group Process. Participants leave the training with a specific plan for behavioral interventions, and a system for implementing the program in their schools.

This student assistance program has proven to be an effective tool for educators as they seek increasingly to make the most out of every minute of teaching time. This program is offered for educators K-12. Costs for this training, including room and board during the three days are covered by Washington Masonic Charities
