Linking Classroom Behavior and Domestic Violence

This one-credit, weekend course will explore the skills that children are forced to adopt to survive in a household of violence and/or chaos and the accompanying behaviors that are displayed in the classroom. We will identify behaviors, discuss cause and effect, and emphasize interventions. A panel of parents will share their experiences with the class. A guest presenter will address the issue of Attachment Disorder, its cause, effects, and interventions. Participants will leave with knowledge of how to help these children experience success in the classroom. This course has evolved during the past seven years to address the needs of children, teachers, parents, and the community.
