Effective Responses to Student Escalation: Adult Behaviors as Predictors for Student Success

Terry Scott

Terrance Scott, Ph.D.

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 3:30–5:00 pm Eastern Time

The cycle of escalating behaviors in students is predictable and preventable. The key is first in teaching students how to handle frustration and anger, then to encourage and facilitate success. But when these strategies are insufficient to prevent a student from escalating behavior to the point where consideration of restraint and seclusion is warranted, there are some specific steps that adults can take in response to students that maximize the probability of successful student outcomes. This webinar will explore both prevention and reaction strategies—using video vignettes to consider how adult behavior can predict positive outcomes for all.

Terrance M. Scott is a Professor and Distinguished University Scholar in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisville and is Director of the Center for Instructional and Behavioral Research in Schools (CIBRS). He has over 120 articles, chapters, and media publications, including four books on a variety of issues in the areas of behavioral disorders and behavioral support systems and has successfully competed for more than $14 million in external grant funding. As a former counselor and teacher of students with seriously challenging behaviors, his research interests focus on school-wide prevention systems, the role of instructional variables in managing student behavior, functional behavior assessment/intervention, and scienfic research in education.
