Shaping a Montessori Community

This is a 2-day follow-up session designed to enable staff to facilitate the creation of resident-driven communities. The program is based on the demonstration project, “Helen’s Place,” which is currently being replicated in Australia and Europe.


Cost: $500

Spaced Retrieval

Spaced Retrieval (SR) is an evidence-based memory intervention that gives individuals practice at successfully recalling information over progressively longer intervals of time. SR utilizes remaining strengths and abilities to enable persons with dementia to learn new procedures to overcome daily challenges, thereby alleviating the symptoms of dementia and reducing caregiver burden. Pioneering research by Dr. Camp and his colleagues forms the basis for two days of intensive training with a major emphasis on visual demonstrations and hands-on exercises to address a wide range of specific challenges.


Resident Volunteers

Within every residential community is a potential corps of volunteers. Based on research that focused on training persons with early stage dementia to serve as activity leaders, this half-day presentation provides practical information and ideas for establishing residential communities in which each individual is provided with opportunities to interact socially, pursue personal interests, and use skills and talents.


Hiding the Stranger in the Mirror

This entertaining presentation by Dr. Camp is based on his book by the same title. The presentation features a series of case studies compiled by Dr. Camp through decades of applied research and problem-solving “in the trenches.” Professionals and family caregivers will find this presentation useful and empowering.

THE TRUSTED SCHOOL LEADER: Gaining Better Results, Deeper Stakeholder Relationships, and Greater Stability




Description: Trust is the single greatest indicator of successful leadership in any organization. That is the definitive and shared conclusion from decades of research conducted throughout many industry sectors (e.g. manufacturing, retail, technology, government, NGOs, etc.). Research also demonstrates that when schools and school leaders are marked by high levels of trust, they possess a significant advantage over other schools (e.g. higher levels of student achievement, increased teacher retention rates, decreased student behavioral issues, etc.). Through this workshop, experienced international school leader, trainer, and consultant, Toby A. Travis provides participants with practical, research-based, and intentional steps toward developing, maintaining, and repairing if necessary, the most critical characteristic for successful and effective school leadership… TRUST.
