Programming for Aggressive and Violent Students. Exceptional Children at Risk: CEC Mini-Library.
Simpson, Richard L.; And Others
This booklet provides a synthesis of the literature and practical suggestions on dealing with violence and aggression in the schools. It is designed to help educators develop the skills to become more competent in preventing and responding to aggressive and violent acts. Particular attention is given to application of a transdisciplinary model. The first two sections provide an introduction and synthesis of relevant practitioner-oriented research, including background information on aggression and violence as well as programs and procedures for responding to these problems. The third section focuses on implications for program development and program administration, specifically program ownership, transdisciplinary team member roles, flexible departmentalization, and supportive attitudes. The fourth section provides recommendations for teachers and administrators who work with students who are aggressive and violent, such as facilitating parent involvement, using the case manager system, and establishing a student advocacy program. The final section lists professional literature, advocacy organizations, professional organizations, and programs to help professionals. (90 references) (JDD)
