Actionable insights, tips and techniques
After 2 hours, you'll leave Paul Morton’s webinar with:
Staff from primary and secondary school settings.
A recent survey from the NASUWT (The Teachers’ Union) found that 89 per cent of respondents said the number of pupils exhibiting physically violent and abusive behaviours has increased in the last 12 months. In addition, 37 per cent reported experiencing violence or physical abuse from pupils in the previous 12 months. Classroom staff reported having furniture thrown at them, being bitten, spat at, headbutted, punched and kicked. And 90 per cent reported receiving verbal abuse, including being sworn at, threatened and targeted with racial or sexual insults.
In this 2-hour webinar, staff from primary and secondary school settings will discover actionable strategies and effective techniques to support staff to de-escalate situations where children and young people are showing aggression and to help them to manage the emotional fall out from experiencing such intense encounters.
