De-escalation and Behavioral Strategies for the Classroom
This seminar was created for school staff and caregivers to help answer the questions of how to determine the type of behavior a child is exhibiting and where in the crisis cycle a child falls. In this seminar, we will provide strategies that teachers, administrators, social workers, psychologists and other school personnel can utilize to intervene when a child is in crisis. We will practice support techniques that individuals can use at the first sign of distress to help children manage their stress and emotions and de-escelate crisis situations. We will emphasize follow-up steps that school personnel can take to utilize a crisis as an opportunity for growth for both the child and the school system.
