Teachers often ask what to do about students who play violent video games or watch violent movies. This is a research based intervention that helps students process what they have seen by developing empathy, separating reality from fantasy, and teaching cause and effect.

Children have different executive functioning skills than adults. People with ADHD, traumatic brain injury, or other executive functioning difficulties may not be able to meet the "norms". On demand platforms are also changing how students are able to anticipate the future. Want to know how to increase executive functioning skills in all students? Ask your ESU16 Behavior Mental Health Team. We can provide teachers with research based interventions through consultation or Staff Development Training.

Despite some promising signs that traditional tobacco cigarette use is decreasing among teenagers, unacceptably high numbers of youth are vaping nicotine. NIDA’s 2019 Monitoring the Future Survey of eighth, 10th, and 12th graders show alarmingly high rates of e-cigarette use compared to just a year ago. It is important for teens to know that most health concerns related to traditional tobacco cigarettes—addiction, lung disease, and effects on prenatal development—apply to vaping as well.
