[FosterEd] Managing Behavioral Challenges with Interventions

April 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In this workshop we will explore the current issues related to behavioral challenges of school age children. Participants will explore the nature of challenging behaviors and effective interventions while inspiring change in those behaviors. The catalyst of this workshop will be an emphasis on nurturing and encouragement as a means to motivate change.

Jimmie has over 20 years of experience in the field of counseling and education. He holds 3 licenses in school, clinical and alcohol and drug counseling. He has a certificate in Trauma Informed Practice from the University of Minnesota and a Co-Occurring Disorders certificate from Adler Graduate School. Additionally, Jimmie is an LPC & LPCC board approved clinical supervisor by the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy.

Jimmie is a trainer and consultant in Restorative Practices, Crisis Prevention and Intervention (CPI) as well as other Social Emotional Learning (SEL) approaches such as the Nurtured Heart Approach. Prior to his work as an associate therapist, he served as an Adjunct Instructor for Adler Graduate. When applicable, Jimmie incorporates elements of Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model. He also incorporates the generational trauma work of Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother’s Hands, to better inform his service.

Jimmie’s clinical work has been with mostly black indigenous people of color (BIPOC). He approaches his work with genuine curiosity, and feels honored to be trusted with client’s sacred thoughts, feelings and experiences. Jimmie believes in the Adlerian principle that a primary source of struggles in life is caused by taking too many precautions. This is why he enjoys helping clients find the power to face their fears by embracing the courage to be imperfect.
