De-escalating Challenging Behaviors

With Courtney Angelosante

This module is designed to provide professional learning in the cycle of escalating behavior. Participants will learn the 7 phases of escalation and the adult strategies that promote de-escalation for the student, as well as strategies adults can use to help increase the odds of staying calm. Participants will be guided through how to develop an individualized de-escalation or safety plan to promote the implementation of evidence-based strategies and positive behavior supports. This module is based on the research of Geoff Colvin and Terry Scott who wrote, Managing the Cycle of Acting-Out Behavior in the Classroom, Second Edition.

Over five parts or modules, University of Maine PBIS Initiative Coordinator Courtney Angelosante will guide you through these topics and more. Upon completion of this training, you will be eligible to receive 3 contact hours.
