EDCO 725-U27 School Violence Prevention
Candidates will explore the issues of student behavior that results in violent and aggressive actions. The development of violent tendencies is examined, including the medical/biological, psychological and social theories of aggression and violence. Particular focus is placed on understanding the risk factors of aggression and violence within regular, special education and inclusion classrooms. Candidates explore the current approaches to intervention with at-risk students, and discuss prevention strategies that can be implemented in regular, special education and inclusion classes in order to minimize the risk of violence. The legal issues involved are presented to help candidates understand the role of school personnel in minimizing risk to students and staff, and also intervening with those students in regular, special education and inclusion classes who are at-risk for violent and aggressive behavior. As part of the curriculum, each participant will develop a Crisis Intervention and Prevention Plan as a potential model that can be implemented within a school district/building. Dr. Carol Dahir
