Course Description

Anger management strategies have become an important topic in schools, businesses, homes and communities. Our society is inundated with classes, books and counseling programs that explain various ways to ?manage anger.? Despite our best attempts, aggression and violence are still on the rise. We regularly hear and read from various media sources how dangerous our society has become, especially our youth population. This class will focus on developing new ways of handling violence without getting involved in the typical power struggles. During this course, each person will learn specific strategies and practical ideas to aid in the reduction of school violence. Key intervention ideas for developing a civil climate within each school will be presented, and identification and recognition of potential violence will be discussed. Included in this approach will be an emphasis on safety for students and educators. This course is not attempting to be a ?cure all? or ?fix it? approach, but will aid educators in their ability to develop a safer environment in a school and community. In addition, it will help each person feel more qualified and capable of handling emerging violent behaviors within a school, home or community setting. The course is divided into four chapters. The intent of this course is to help each student ?walk? through the process of assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation in the arena of violence. There are numerous worksheets that all students will be asked to complete for their own knowledge base. Throughout the course, role-play situations will be presented to help each person recognize violent tendencies prior to their development into violent behaviors. The chapters are sequential and should be completed in the order in which they are presented. At the conclusion of each chapter, the student will be asked to complete an examination covering the material. This type of approach will help all students gain a better understanding of what they have learned as they proceed through the course.
