Fighting and aggression are among the most serious and challenging of all student behaviors. These include all instances in which one or more students engage in behavior whose sole purpose is to deliver physical or emotional harm to another. In milder cases, your goal is to interrupt the aggression. But in the most extreme cases, the goal is solely on enhancing the safety of all concerned to the greatest degree possible.
These videos, featuring actors in the student roles, illustrate strategies to de-escalate aggressive behavior in both classroom and non-classroom environments as well as a demonstration of a “room-clear” when aggression has escalated to a point when the student presents possible danger to himself or others.
