Dealing with Problematic Classroom Behavior—for GTAs

Tuesday, October 8, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm, in 023 Dunbar Library.

Led by Daniela Burnworth, Ph.D., Associate Director for Clinical Training, Counseling and Wellness Services; Gary Dickstein, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs and Director, Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct.

The number of violent incidents on college campuses around the country has resulted in a heightened level of awareness to disruptive and disturbing student behavior in the classroom. It is important to maintain an environment that is both educational and safe to students, faculty and staff. There are situations that may require consultation and assistance from Counseling and Wellness Services, Community Standards & Student Conduct and the University Police Department. This workshop will help new GTAs recognize problematic behavior, distinguish between disturbing and disruptive behavior, as well as provide techniques to prevent and address disruptive behavior.
