EDUC-5405 Reclaiming Troubled Children and Youth

Add to My Courses

This course is designed to prepare educators to meet the needs of emotionally fragile and behaviourally disruptive children and youth. Emphasis is on Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI), an advanced, interactive, therapeutic set of strategies that help teachers and other caregivers understand the cycle of conflict and its long-term effects. Students learn to reframe problems from crisis management to crisis teaching, treat disrespectful students respectfully, de-escalate aggression and counter-aggression, recover after a crisis, and turn crisis situations into learning opportunities.
