Are you prepared to handle a disruptive student in your classroom? With Verbal Judo, you will be. Verbal Judo is a process of using your words to prevent, de-escalate or end an attempted disruption. You'll learn skills to prepare you for verbal conflict in all areas of your life. In a classroom situation, you'll be equipped to remain under emotional control during disagreements, maintain professionalism, use words instead of actions to achieve goals, avoid charged language, employ empathy to stay engaged with people, and safely take action when words fail. All who teach are invited to this introduction to Verbal Judo for classroom situations. Participants will learn a collection of skills that can be put into use immediately.
