Title:Recognizing and reporting behaviors that may be aggressive, disruptive, or dangerous in our classrooms and student interactions, and the risks associated with such behaviors.
Seminar:Teaching Seminar
Speaker:Rebecca B. Bywater, Penn State Behavior Threat Management Team
Abstract:
“Recognizing and reporting risky and threatening behaviors in our classrooms, office spaces, and learning communities – what are our responsibilities to our students, our colleagues, and to the broader Penn State community” We have all observed students at one time or another who have displayed symptoms of depression, anger, impulsive and erratic behavior, poor coping skills, low frustration tolerance, and periods of withdrawal and isolation. Many of us have received emails containing language suggestive of deeper, and often more potentially threatening behaviors. How do we identify the warning signs and intervene before someone engages in behavior that poses a threat to themselves or others? As educators, what are our responsibilities to our students, our colleagues, and to the broader Penn State community?
