Dealing With Angry Students and Tantrums Effectively

ID: 5061

It seems each year we are faced in dealing with more and more students who are getting angrier and angrier. Why are our students angry? How do we deal with students when they are annoyed, frustrated or otherwise irritated? What works and what does not? In this informative workshop we will attempt to briefly look at the context that seems to foster these students. Then, and most importantly, we will look at practical and simple tools that can be used immediately to decrease the incidents of tantrums and angry behaviors within the school, mental health and home setting. The goal of this workshop will be to supplement your existing tools with others you can quickly implement when working with these students during their most challenging states.
