Student behavioral crisis can take the form of physical aggression, self-injury, property destruction, tantrums, melt-downs flight from a room or building or other undesirable acts. Most educators would probably agree that they would prefer these behaviors not occur.
One of the most effective ways to deal with crisis and the behaviors that can follow is to try and prevent the crisis from happening in the first place (or catch it in early stages). For some, this may require a shift in current mindset and strategies.
In the Crisis Prevention for The Classroom course participants will be introduced to simple prevention methods, early response techniques, personal safety measures, and crisis follow-up strategies.
