About Berry Street School
Berry Street School is located in Australia and is probably best known for their BSEM (Berry Street Education Model) program. The school works with emotionally injured children, who come from broken homes. Many of their students are in care.
Teachers and educators experience this on a daily basis in their learning environment; young people who experience that stress, emotional confusion such as anxiety and depression, lack of family support or a specific traumatic event make their everyday life difficult and sometimes unaffordable.
Understanding the meaning of trauma and emotional well-being and the needs for healing and emotional growth for achievement requires specialized strategies and training. The Berry Street Education Model is a research-based model that provides educators and schools with practical educational strategies to engage students who have proven particularly well-suited to young people with learning disabilities. The model has proved particularly suitable for resource-poor and non-learning-ready students.
This model is composed of evidence-based positive education (Positive Education & Training), best practice from trauma awareness and mental health. The model supports educational staff and leadership in developing practices and strategies that reinforce cognitive and behavioral change. This change ensures that young people are able to maintain commitment to their learning and relationships, leading to classrooms that are calmer and happier, which in turn leads to improved academic performance.
Over 27,000 educators in more than 3,000 schools have participated in the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM). The course is an engaging and interactive experience provided by well-qualified facilitators.
A research project at the University of Melbourne documented that the BSEM strategies and practices contribute to more than two years of academic growth in one year (* Stokes, H., & Turnbull, M., 2016).
The practice that Berry Street educates you on gives you skills to increase student self-regulation, resilience and academic performance and:
Practical strategies for dealing with circumstances that are disruptive to individual and entire class learning.
Educational strategies to better engage and empower students in learning situations.
Further developing strategies that reinforce the cognitive and behavioral change that can be used in classroom practices and lessons.
Strategies to raise teachers' awareness of self-care and mental health.
The Berry Street model is beneficial for students of all ages. In the above research project, a 12-year-old informant said, "I can see that it helps a lot in my class. I see that everyone is calmer and focuses better."
