Description: Target Audience: School Staff, Teachers, Classroom Support Staff
Addressing challenging student behavior is a critical part of creating a safe and welcoming learning environment. This workshop will explore strategies and practices to redirect and de-escalate negative student behavior. Teachers, behavior and restorative justice staff, social workers, instructional coaches, and deans will identify their previous practices and work through unpacking what works and unlearning the practices that heighten negative student behavior. De-escalation utilizes connection and other techniques to reduce the level of conflict and harm. In this session, participants will focus on building their restorative communication skills and preparing to engage with students when negative behavior occurs.
