ASPEN
7 Modules in Total

This program trains entire school teams in a safe, positive, and meaningful method of preventing and responding aggressive and dangerous student behavior. ASPEN is superior to every other training program out there because it is the ONLY program that infuses components of positive psychology into systems of tiered support and behavioral analysis.

Training Intro

“Happy Kids Don’t Punch You in the Face,” takes the center stage in the ASPEN training modules. Sure we cover the roots of aggression, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, and principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis–but so do a lot of programs. In ASPEN, you are going to connect the dots to meaningful behavioral change for students by introducing components of positive psychology to the behavior plan.

Module 1: The Roots of Aggression

In this module we review the work and the wonders of Gerald Patterson’s Coercion Theory. Patterson’s research on aggression in children (and everybody else for that matter) needs to be understood by the masses. This module is your full-course meal on how aggression develops and persists in school-age children.

Module 2: Stuff That Does Not Work

If you’ve worked in the school setting, you understand the beauty and the banality of the school calendar. It is beautiful because of all the breaks–it is banal because of all the breaks. We simply do not have any time in the school year to waste on practices that don’t work.

Ben Springer

Instructor

Ben Springer created ASPEN out of pure necessity. Every other training program out there was either too expensive, out of touch, or both. Schools are unique settings that require unique methods. ASPEN contains the unique methodology necessary for the modern school setting.

Ben Belnap

Instructor

Ben Belnap brings his years of work in residential treatment and mental health settings to make sure the content of ASPEN hits every mark for every kid struggling with aggressive or dangerous behaviors.

Brian King, Jordan School District

ASPEN has been the game-changer we have been looking for in our district. We are building a culture of safety and optimism with ASPEN at the root of it all.

Deb Fenton, Oakcrest Elementary School

Too often behavior plans fail to include plans for when things cool down. Our students need ongoing instruction in coping skills and Chillax is the only program that delivers.

Janet Hansen, The Ranches Academy

Our Tier 1 classroom management has never looked so good. Everything you hear is true: Happy teachers = Happy Class. Everyone needs this training.

Cade Charlton, Brigham Young University

We train future special educators and we train them in IEP Zen.
