2019 Northwest Dental Hygiene Educators' Association Annual Conference

March 2, 2019


NWDHE invites you to our 2019 Northwest Dental Hygine Educator's Annual Conference. This year's conference is hoted by PIMA Institute.


Toxic Attitudes, Drama & Conflict: Solving the Problem of Difficult and Diverse Personalities


Course Description:

What is one of the toughest jobs educators face?

Managing abrasive student behavior is no easy task, and doing it poorly, or failing to do it all together, can have disastrous consequences for your institution, your department, and you. You know you should do something, but what? And how? What does it take to grow a backbone and manage difficult and diverse personalities calmly, confidently, and expertly? During this program, participants will gain the insight and tools to manage conflict vs. just minimize or dismiss it. The seminar includes interaction and participant exercises to master the material.


Our speaker is:  Kristine Berry, RDH, MSEC
