BIST-Behavioral Intervention Support Team
There is no questions about it. Today's educational environment
looks entirely different than it did thirty, twenty, even then years
ago. All of us involved in education -- students, parents, teachers
and administrators-- are faced with new and distinct challenges
brought about by dramatic shifts in lifestyle and behavior over
the last generation.
As educators, we have been both challenged and frustrated
as we seek new ways to cope with the tremendous change taking place
around us. But amid all the change there remains one constant -
our common goal to provide every student with a safe and productive
learning environment. BIST, a unique outreach program of Ozanam,
helps you work toward that goal, creating a positive change toward
a safe and productive environment in your school. BIST staff works
with schools, teachers, and administrators to teach and train them
to deal with problem children. This enables problems to be resolved
more quickly and efficiently, and allows teachers to continue teaching
all of the students in the classroom.
BIST's programs are developed specifically for your
entire school and can be applied to individuals, teams, or the entire
faculty. Regardless of the exact nature of our work together, the
process begins with a meeting of key people from your organization
and BIST staff for an in-depth look at your situation.This is followed
by a three-hour in-service to give your entire staff a feel for
our philosophy and a look at our specific services. At this point
we provide you with a recommended plan of action.
BIST services and programs include:
- In-Service Training on topics such as:
|Class Meetings and Demonstrations
|Partnering with Parents
|Substance - Abuse prevention
||Techniques in school social work

Who are we?
BIST team members are dedicated to creating a caring
community in every learning environment. Our work with schools is
carried out by a group of professionals which typically comprises
educators, therapists, and social workers. Other specialists are
called in as needed for participating schools and districts.
Collectively, BIST staff represents more than 50
years of experience - much of it working with severely troubled
teenage boys at Ozanam.

|The Behavior Intervention Support Team (BIST)
grew out of a desire to keep at-risk students in a community
school. Our mission is to help teachers, administrators, parents
and students learn techniques to effect positive change and
create a healthy learning environment for all. We accomplish
this through G.R.A.C.E. - Giving Responsibility and Accountability
to Children in Education.
