Course Description

This course is ideal for administrators, teachers, and support staff involved with programs for supporting students with Emotional and Behavior Disorders (EBD). It provides a unique combination of material on understanding and supporting students with emotional and behavioral problems and practical methods for dealing effectively with these students in a variety of settings-from the general education classroom to specialized intervention programs. The combination of content presented in this course helps educators understand the key issues associated with providing support for students experiencing EBD and includes highly practical methods for working effectively with these students. The course carefully examines key assumptions to take into account when working with this student population, major psychological issues facing students experiencing EBD, and key methods for providing teacher-students and peer relationships the support psychological health and academic engagement for these students. It also includes methods for developing specialized interventions to support students with EBD in developing skills that will enable them to be successful independent learners. A wide range of forms and case studies enable educators to successfully implement the concepts and methods presented, and helpful reflection activities ensure comprehension of the material. This course is designed to support students with EBD in learning the most fundamental and critical steps necessary to learn to assume responsibility for their social and academic success.
