Level 4: Train the Trainer

Overview

The LSCI Online Refresher Course: Level 4 provides an opportunity for professionals interested in becoming certified as a Senior Trainer for the LSCI Institute to demonstrate their understanding of advanced LSCI concepts as well as their ability to teach these concepts to others. In this level, participants submit (via digital upload) video footage of their teaching the LSCI Conflict cycle and a second concept, as assigned via the course. Participants will also upload a written synthesis of their use of an LSCI intervention with a child or youth.


For Senior Trainer and Candidates Only

Welcome to the final level of LSCI Certification, prior to attending a Senior Trainer Certification course. Here, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of advanced LSCI concepts by uploading two teaching videos and one written summary of your use of an LSCI reclaiming intervention with a young person.


Course Instructions

Level 4 is part of the Train-the-Trainer process to become certified as a Senior Trainer for the LSCI Institute. Level 4 is completed in 3 parts:

Part 1: Upload a video in which you teach the LSCI Conflict Cycle. Trainer materials will be provided to you by your LSCI Mentor Trainer. The video should be approximately 8-10 minutes in length. PowerPoint slides should be used and included in your video presentation. Please include an original example of an adult and student involved in a Conflict Cycle.

Part 2: Upload a video in which you teach a foundational concept from Day 1 of LSCI training. Your LSCI Mentor Trainer should assist you in selecting an appropriate concept for your second video. The video should be approximately 6-10 minutes in length. PowerPoint slides should be used and included in your video presentation. Please include an original example of an adult or student encounter that illustrates the foundational concept you select.

Part 3: Submit a written synthesis, approximately 6-8 pp in length, that details an LSCI intervention you have carried out with a young person. The articles in your LSCI Participant manual provide an excellent model for what the written paper should look like.


Level 4 Certification & Feedback:

Your videos and written synthesis will be reviewed by an LSCI Master Trainer and feedback will be provided to you. You will be contacted by the Master Trainer who is evaluating your responses within the next 2 weeks. Your submissions will NOT be published on the internet or made available for public viewing outside of this internal review process.
