Classroom Management: Preventing and Responding to Disruptive Students In and Out of the Classroom

Faculty and staff members are crucial in supporting students throughout their college journey. However, this responsibility can sometimes be overwhelming and complex. In classrooms, we often come face-to-face with students who exhibit emotional and behavioral difficulties, leading to disruptive or even dangerous situations.

Join us for a workshop designed to help you navigate these challenging scenarios, in and out of the classroom. Learn to distinguish between disruptive and dangerous behaviors and gain valuable strategies and resources to respond effectively. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and skills necessary to create a safe and productive learning environment for everyone involved, to feel like you have control over your space (classroom, office, etc.), know what to do when things go off the rails, and how to regain control in a situation where you may be at risk of losing it.

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will distinguish disruptive behavior from dangerous behavior.
  • Participants will distinguish being threatened from feeling threatened.
  • Participants will identify strategies for preventing escalation and de-escalating disruptive behaviors.
  • Participants will identify strategies for safely responding to dangerous behaviors.
  • Participants will understand how to make appropriate referrals corresponding to the behavior.
