T&L 2900: VIR: Behavior is Language: Strategies for Managing Disruptive Behavior

*This is not strictly a behavior modification course. The course blends psychodynamic theory with B-Mod to give teachers a stronger understanding of underlying social, emotional and behavioral issues not generally covered in most undergraduate programs. The course is helpful for elementary and subject specific secondary teachers who do not have a background in behavioral/psychodynamic theory and modification. Many elementary and secondary general education teachers have benefitted from this course.*

This course is designed to give the learner a new perspective on student behavior and effective tools to facilitate positive student change. Taught by Mick R. Jackson MS/ED, this course provides a developmental framework to help the learner understand what students are trying to communicate through the "language" of their behavior. Topics covered include behavioral techniques and intervention strategies that remediate disruptive behaviors, reduce power struggles while increasing classroom control, reduce educator workload, and help prevent burnout. After successfully completing this course, the educator and his/her students will be better equipped to find and implement creative, effective solutions to behavioral problems.
