Workshop 1- The explosive student: why it happens and what to do (COMPLET)

Eva de Gosztonyi
Psychologist

Schools are struggling with students who experience frequent and intense explosions. In order to effectively intervene, we must first understand the origins of this challenging behaviour, whether the student is in Kindergarten, Elementary or High School. This presentation will reveal the underlying emotion, which is frustration, and then explain why certain students have a hard time managing their frustration. We will delve into the neuroscience surrounding this emotion. Finally, we will look at ways of intervening that allow us to avoid certain pitfalls and that have proven to be effective.

Eva de Gosztonyi, M.A. is a psychologist who has worked for over 40 years in schools across Canada. She is the Co-ordinator of the Centre of Excellence for Behaviour Management, a support to the English School Boards of Quebec, helping them to provide effective interventions for students with behavioural challenges.
