What is the Masonic Model Student Assistance Program?
A highly professional and intensive three-day training workshop for Arizona educators to learn to or improve their ability to:
Identify, intervene with, and create appropriate intervention plans for students that may be at risk.
This workshop trains a core team of four to eight educators from a school in how to intervene early and effectively with students that display patterns of behaviors that threaten their success at school and in life.
MSAP involves practical practice sessions designed to simulate real events along with presentations on such Subjects as:
- Chemical Dependency
- Depression and Suicide
- Anger and Violence
- Communication Skills and Intervention
- Family Dynamics
- Life Skills Development
- Treatment and Aftercare
- Group Process
Participants leave the training with a specific plan for behavioral interventions, a system for implementing MSAP in their schools, and can then incorporate worthwhile MSAP concepts and practices into their current program.
