Services for Teachers:

Would you like to have more energy at the end of the day?

Do you want to spend less time handling discipline and more time teaching?

If so, you are not alone. For years teachers have been looking for effective tips and techniques that allow them to have more energy, more fun, and build stronger relationships with their students...all while handling misbehavior "without breaking a sweat".

School Consulting and Counseling Support:

Let's face it: none of us have all the answers when it comes to helping kids with special emotional or behavioral needs. For many years, Steve Barcanic has provided on-site school based counseling, observation, and consultation. As a Licensed Professional Counselor with the specialty of working with children and teens, Steve supports teachers, administrators, school counselors, and parents who are eager to find solutions for complex behavioral challenges in students. He has provided these services throughout southern Arizona in the Amphitheater, Catalina Foothills, Marana, Sunnyside, Elgin, and Tucson Unified school districts. Steve has worked extensively with several charter schools, as well. He has conducted individual and group counseling on school campuses, covering a wide range of topics, with children grades K through 12. 

Professional development seminars:

Steve Barcanic is thoroughly trained and experienced in helping teachers, administrators, counselors, aides...even cafeteria staff and monitors...expand their skills and techniques for working with students. The 9 Essential Skills for the Love and Logic Classroom gives staff members simple, effective, strategies to handle the most common (and even "not so common") challenges from students. 

Educators agree that it can be exhausting dealing with kids who don't want to take personal responsibility, or who argue and talk back. Equally draining can be working with students who appear to have "Motivation Deficit Disorder", or those who can create power struggles over just about anything.

The Love and Logic techniques presented in Steve Barcanic's seminars will help you and your staff "look forward" to kids acting up, so you can try your new techniques. You will also learn the words to use in a variety of challenging situations, so you won't have to worry about being caught off-guard. These fun, energetic seminars can be designed to meet the needs of your staff, and can be tailored to fit your budget and time frame. Most importantly, Steve's seminars are not designed to replace your school's existing programs or philosophies, but to make them even more effective.​
