Model Student Assistance Program (MSAP) – Dec. 5-7, 2022

Over the last decade a new concept has emerged, the Student Assistance Program (SAP).  “SAP” provides a proactive response to the concerns resulting from children with high-risk behaviors.  “SAP” has been modeled after the “Employee Assistance Program” which has become widely recognized for its positive contributions in reducing work related high-risk problems.

The Newman & Stecher Group provides a three-day workshop designed to prepare school “core teams” to work more effectively with today’s at‑risk student.

The workshop emphasizes experiential training and provides hands‑on solutions that can be used every day in the classroom.  After each concept is presented, the participants role-play, participate in activities, and work together to create a deeper understanding.  At the end of the workshop, each core team uses the Masonic Model Student Assistance Program (MSAP) process to design an intervention for an at-risk child already known to them from their school.  They gather the data, complete the necessary paperwork, and develop a school-based action plan for the child.

Very often educators already know how to identify children in pain, but they are not sure where to start, or how to address the issue.  MSAP training emphasizes that intervention is a process, not an event.  It provides the skills to design and implement an appropriate intervention, while reminding participants that it took years for the child’s pain to develop, and it may take a few years before a sense of success can be achieved.
