About the Event
Educators frequently struggle with how to effectively improve the behavior of students, especially concerning undesirable behaviors.
This workshop will focus on understanding the purposes of discipline and behavior management, how both prevention and remediation need to be part of such systems, and specific strategies for effective developmental discipline.
Developmental discipline starts with the perspective that the goal of disciplinary encounters is the long-‐‑ term positive development of the student, both so the undesirable behavior is reduced and so the student develops character. In other words, the behavior changes, but so does the student, so s/he becomes less likely to engage in such behavior (and related behaviors) in the long run.
