PASS Training: Non-compliance: Handling Defiance: No Charge for CKEC Member Districts; $35 for Non-Member Districts
- Presenter: Karen King
- Target Audience: Guidance counselors, administrators, behavior coaches, school psychologists and all teachers
- Description: Defiance. It’s guaranteed to push a teacher’s buttons. After all, we’re supposed to be in charge, right? Defiance rubs our nose in the fact that we can’t really control another person, whether he’s three or thirteen, unless we use force. When we overreact to defiance we escalate the battle. Unfortunately, since force creates resistance, either openly or in a passive-aggressive form, it’s ultimately a losing strategy. You might win the battle, but you’ll lose the war. So what can a teacher do about defiance? Cure it at the source! Kids are defiant for a reason.
