Teacher Training Series
Below is a list of topics that have been presented in schools, conferences, and workshops that are geared toward groups consisting mainly of teachers, paraprofessionals, school counselors, and school administrators. These lectures have been done individually or as part of a series. Each topic has been presented numerous times and outcome measures have been used over the past decade to maximize audience participation, understanding, and enjoyment.
When choosing to do a series, some schools have found it easier to have one topic a month such as part of staff meetings while other schools have chosen to do training quarterly. By being CONNECTED, we can help you design your marketing materials and strategies to increase attendance and motivate teachers to get involved.

What Is STET®?
The Systematic Training for Effective Teaching (STET) ® program has been around since 1980. It is based on the principles of psychology that were introduced by Dr. Alfred Adler in the early 1900’s. Dr. Adler’s approach to psychology was one of teaching, training, and helping people understand by making things clear, concise, and user-friendly. When STET® was first published, the basic idea was the same … teaching teachers how to be more effective in the classroom by helping them understand the basic concepts of child psychology.
Who Is The Presenter?
For over 20 years, Dr. Snow has been one of the leaders in the field of teacher education by conducting research on the effectiveness of STET® and also on how to be effective in teaching the material to teachers in various school settings. He has implemented these materials in adolescent day treatment centers, long-term residential facilities, as well as school settings. Dr. Snow has a proven track record of being successful in incorporating these materials with children and adolescents. Even in settings such as long-term residential facility where previous critics of Adlerian psychology said these materials would not be effective, Dr. Snow has demonstrated that the concepts are just as powerful and effective as in a “regular” school setting. He has been asked to present his research and experience both nationally and internationally and has published numerous research articles in peer-reviewed journals over the past two decades.
CONNECTED is proud to offer STET® to schools and other organizations. Our STET® Classes are unique because of the numerous modifications that Dr. Snow has made to the program.
The course can be designed in several formats, however, the two most popular have been:
(1) school-based and
Three (3) days (whether consecutive is up to the school) in which the entire school is trained (teachers, para-professionals, school counselors, and administration). This is the most popular because it facilitates a change in the culture of the targeted school and supports all school personnel to make the paradigm shift. Total program length is between 18- 20 Contact Hours.
Classes can be set up to take place weekly (or every other week) after school over a period of several weeks (the length of each class will determine the number of classes). This format is typically chosen by schools that do not have training days left in the school year to facilitate the School-based training format. Total program length is between 18 – 20 Contact Hours.
How We Are Different

Your school personnel will become more connected to each other through an interactive, supportive, and fun learning process that will foster a more encouraging work environment.
Your school will become more connected to the students because teachers will learn about the purposefulness of behavior, the impact of birth order, brain development within children and adolescents, the impact of ADHD on learning, effective communication strategies, and so much more.
Your school will become more connected to the students’ parents by learning how to deal with difficult parents and become more effective in communicating with all students’ parents throughout the school year.
