Turning Down the Heat: Preventing Conflict & Counter- Aggression



More than 80% of classroom problems are caused by 10% of students who challenge and undermine teacher authority. These students are skilled in frustrating adults and pushing the emotional buttons of even the most competent teachers. Most teachers are irritated by the behavior of select, challenging students. This is to be expected. Few teachers are trained to understand and acknowledge these normal counter-aggressive feelings. Problems develop when competent teachers stay angry at a student. When a conflict develops, teachers are less likely to perceive accurately, think clearly and reason coherently. Though competent teachers rarely initiate conflicts with students, they often keep them alive through their unintended, counter-productive reactions. Turning Down the Heat documents four of the most common reasons that teachers become counter-aggressive with select students and offers specific skills to manage conflict in the classroom. This unique training is about you and not your students; it leads to powerful insights which will change the way you think and behave when you are angry.

Turning Down the Heat: Preventing Conflict & Counter Aggression

More than 80% of classroom problems are caused by 10% of students who challenge and undermine teacher authority. These students are skilled in frustrating adults and pushing the emotional buttons of even the most competent teachers.

Most teachers are irritated by the behavior of select, challenging students. This is to be expected. Few teachers are trained to understand and acknowledge these normal counter-aggressive feelings. Problems develop when competent teachers stay angry at a student. When a conflict develops, teachers are less likely to perceive accurately, think clearly, and reason coherently. Though competent teachers rarely initiate conflicts with students, they often keep them alive though their unintended, counter-productive reactions.

Turning Down the Heat uses the ideas of Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI) to document four of the most common reasons that teachers become counter-aggressive with select students and offers specific skills to manage conflict in the classroom. This unique training is about you and not your students; it leads to powerful insights which will change the way you think and behave when you are angry.
