As the president and former conference chair of our professional school psychology association I have organized and attended numerous conferences. Our recent conference featured Dr. Laura Riffel and was, by far, one of best received conferences to date. Our attendees were impressed with her depth of knowledge and experience. However, what set this training apart from others was the hands-on skills and tips that audience members leave with. Participants leave the training with new tools in their tool belt that they can use tomorrow in their schools.

Nobody wants to give up a Saturday near the end of a hectic school year to attend another training on how to deal with disruptions in the classroom, however I cannot stress enough how beneficial Dr. Riffel’s training was for me professionally. Her upbeat seminar was both honest and engaging, you could feel the love and picture yourself in many of her scenarios. Having a speaker that has lived through some of the nightmares we deal with on a daily basis was energizing, and the tools she delivered were things we all can do to make our classroom an energizing learning zone. This is a must for any teacher that has a student who needs that extra bit of encouragement to become the best person they can be, and any teacher that needs some new tricks for their bag.

The Behavior Doctor seminars were a great asset to our district. Our students responded to the interventions and we saw a significant reduction in negative behaviors and an increase in pro-social behaviors. Her seminars are engaging and full of easy to implement interventions. Her behavioral strategies can be used with individual students or universally with the whole classroom or school! She helped staff really understand why using positive behavior supports were important and effective! Our parents raved about the parent training she put on and said it was one of the best things the school had ever hosted!
