School-Based Play Therapy: Responding to Children's Disruptive Behaviors
Disruptive classroom behaviors are the number one reason students are referred for services or receive disciplinary action. Oftentimes, behaviors are a symptom of underlying concerns and not the problem in and of themselves. In this workshop, we’ll discuss children’s goals of misbehavior, how to identify them, and how to respond to them using play therapy techniques and strategies.
Learning Objectives: After successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
1. identify the 4 goals of misbehavior
2. apply 2 play therapy techniques for responding to children’s disruptive behaviors
3. describe strategies teachers can use for responding to children’s disruptive behaviors.
