Crisis Response In and Outside the Classroom


In this seminar, college faculty gains insight into how to respond to disruptive behavior in and outside the classroom and how to deal with students in crisis. Participants learn a behavioral-intervention protocol for students with erratic, suicidal or bizarre symptoms that indicate possible injury to themselves or to others.

 This seminar answers the following questions:

  • What is the proper response to a student’s disruptive behavior in my class?
  • What is my role in dealing with a student in crisis in and outside the classroom?
  • What activities or symptoms should I address or report?
  • To whom should I report these activities?
