Learning Objectives

These are the exact points that Jeff will cover with your audience.


Identifying Types of Aggression

What happened? Participants will learn the four types of aggression along with level 1 and level 2 interventions that are easy to remember.

This helps grownups replace the abstract, unhelpful, overused and emotionally-charged word “bullying” with clear language that gets to the root of the problem.

Managing Emotions

How do you feel? Learn how to help students de-escalate and manage their emotions, after experiencing aggression.

With three questions, you can help a child move from “mad” to “glad”, give up irrational demands, and find an upside to let downs. This fosters coping skills and a resilient (growth) mindset.

Resolving Conflicts

Why did they do it? How will you solve it? Once you know the three motivations for aggression, it’s easy to tell why someone is mean and stop them in two easy steps.

The SQUABBLES® Intervention Games allows students to practice resolving conflicts in a safe environment, with coaching, from a caring adult.
