    ANGER: TRIGGERS AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS

    A masterclass on how to deal with anger in positive ways

    With this DVD teachers can learn powerful strategies to deal with their own anger in three different scenarios:
  • Meeting an angry parent face to face
  • Handling a confrontation with a student
  • Resolving an issue over the telephone Each scenario shows a negative response followed by a more reasonable, positive way of managing the situation. Summaries of negative and positive points along the way allow the film to be paused and discussed by the viewers. The negative clips demonstrate:
  • Early warning signs, triggers, escalation points and a failure to resolve the situation
  • Overfamiliarity, power struggles, secondary behaviour issues
  • Blame approach, raised voice, lack of empathy, threats
  • Failure to use objective observations/evidence, personal comments, no trust/respect, interrupting
  • Making excuses, being sarcastic, arguing, criticising, overreacting The more reasoned, considered responses in contrast show:
  • A welcoming attitude
  • How to review the issue and spot the positives
  • Directed questioning to focus on self-management and resolution
  • The importance of pitch, intonation, smiling, keeping your voice enthusiastic and friendly
  • Thinking carefully before you speak and focusing on the facts
  • Non-verbal communication and active listening

    BILLY AND THE BIG D-CISION

    Dilemmas, options and consequences relating to young people and drugs.

    Developed in partnership with Orkney DASAT and Scotland Against Drugs.

    Billy's back but sadly life doesn't get any easier. Now some of his pals are passing drugs round at school and he has to decide what to do. Will he take the drugs and risk the effects on his health, his schoolwork and his family or say no and probably get laughed at?

    Help is at hand though. Not only can Billy try out a choice, find out what might happen then take it back and try something else, but he can also call for help on his mobile phone, ask questions relevant to the scene he's in and consult an extensive database of drug-related topics.

    Billy and the Big D-cision offers young people the chance to explore a wide range of issues to do with drug taking, peer pressure, actions, consequences and responsibility in a safe, enjoyable environment.

    As well as 18 scenes, 54 choices, 15 outcomes, 45 talkabout topics and over 200 animations and sound effects, Billy and the Big D-cision also comes with a unique drugs database, primary and secondary worksheets, and a detailed user guide. Billy and the Big D-cision is aimed particularly at pupils aged 10-14 and aims to support drugs education in school, social work and other youth initiatives.

    BILLY BREAKS THE RULES

    Billy Breaks the Rules follows Billy's life in a substitute care family.

    Even when it's all going well, Billy has problems to cope with and overcome - like when he gets caught stealing and has his pocket money cut. What's he going to do now?

    Working with a counsellor, carer or teacher Billy Breaks the Rules allows children to deal with issues they find hard to talk about in a safe and fun environment. Controlling the actions and choices of a character in a computer game lets a child express their own feelings and fears and experiment with choices - then apply the issues raised to real life.

    Billy Breaks the Rules has 15 scenes with 3 choices in each, 10 different outcomes with talkabout topics, over 120 cartoon animations, sound effects, high quality speech, original music and interactivity. The family life issues are equally relevant to children not in substitute care. All printed text also spoken to avoid literacy problems.

    CHRONIC BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS

    By Dave Stott

    This Chronic Behaviour Problems DVD demonstrates how to:
  • Reduce incidents of chronic misbehaviour in the classroom
  • Encourage students to make good decisions about behaviour and return to "on task" behaviour
  • De-escalate, rather than escalate, the situation
  • Demonstrate a hierarchy of intervention.
  • The DVD starts by identifying chronic behaviour problems, those constantly re-occurring problems that are difficult to stop and wear you down as a teacher, challenging your professionalism. Such problems include fidgeting and lack of attention (disruptive and non-disruptive), agitated movement, rudeness, not bringing the right equipment, wearing the wrong uniform, calling out, leaving their seat, interrupting the learning of others by chatting or making physical contact and refusal to comply with clear instructions.

    The DVD then continues by exploring a hierarchy of teacher responses ¡V to use the least intrusive intervention in the shortest time. These responses include the look, secret signal, physical proximity (move in/move out) praise proximity, hurdle help, warnings, comply time, antiseptic bouncing, self-calming, timed reminders, rewards and consequences.

    Dave also gives the teacher personal tips on being a positive person and explains how that will consequently then get a more positive result from the students. Such tips include positive body language, eye contact, sincerity, voice matching and intonation, verbal language, response style and empathy.

    The DVD continues with looking at a problem-solving model and coming up with five different solutions then testing those solutions as to whether in a classroom situation they work, are safe, feel good and are fair.

    Next Dave explores the benefits of one-to-one meetings: meeting the student and describing the problem and working with them to find a way forward.

    Then finally the DVD concludes with a question and answer session with teachers in the audience, giving them suggested strategies for their own personal experiences of chronic behaviour problems.
