Webinar: “Educating the Educators” (ETE) Program
The “Educating The Educators” (ETE) Program is an initiative developed by NAMI NJ and reviewed by New Jersey Psychiatric Association (NJPA) and the New Jersey Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (NJCCAP) to help K-12 educators understand children and youth with biologically-based mental illnesses. ETE, copyrighted by NAMI NJ, is the only NJ program dedicated solely to educating teachers about mental illness in the classroom.
“Educating the Educators” is presented by a medical professional, an educator, and a parent. During an ETE session, presenters provide an overview of practical tools to help motivate children and youth with social and emotional disorders, including ADD, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, Major Depression, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder and Anxiety Disorders, including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), as well as Autism. Topics will include symptoms, treatment, collaboration, resources, referrals, stigma, empathy and accommodations.
