Defiant, Manipulative & Attention Seeking Students: How to Unlock Their Potential and Survive the Process
With today’s increased focus on academic success and measureable outcomes, how educators handle defiant, manipulative, apathetic or attention-seeking students can often be the difference between success and failure in a given classroom – or an entire school. The disruption to the classroom and the energy that the educator must expend to address behavioral issues can create serious roadblocks to learning. Situations with difficult students have a way of intensifying quickly.
This seminar will provide attendees with up-to-date insights and strategies for reaching and helping students who can evoke strong feelings of frustration and discouragement. Educators will learn a five-step responsibility-centered approach that has been proven effective in helping educators become masters of challenging moments with students.
- Identify the underlying causes of difficult behaviors in students
- Integrate key strategies for migrating from an obedience-focused approach to a responsibility-centered approach
- Apply strategies for preventing the escalation of difficult behaviors
