Disrespect, ignoring rules, open hostility, or violence: disruptive behavior is anything that interferes with the educational process or the meeting of another person's needs. Professor Wubbolding identifies the increase of problems in today's classrooms as a direct result of students' inner needs not being met. Reality therapy provides very concrete tactics you can use to interact with students to meet their five basic human needs:
Reality Therapy in the Classroom: Workshop 1
Part 1: Interview with Robert Wubbolding—Introduces the fundamental principles and strategies of reality therapy.
Part 2: Using Reality Therapy—Shows teachers certified in reality therapy working with students in two Detroit-area schools.
Dealing with Disruptive Behavior: Workshop 2
Part 3: Simulating Interventions—Applies reality therapy to typical classroom situations.
Part 4: Practicing Interventions—Provides a set of "trigger events" for practicing effective techniques and role-playing activities.
Provide teachers, administrators, parents, and students with a proven set of strategies for managing classrooms and dealing with disruptive behavior. Founded on theories and principles developed by William Glasser and refined by Robert Wubbolding, reality therapy requires students to take responsibility for their actions by holding them accountable, accepting no excuses, and expecting them to control their own behavior.
