In Partnership with NASW-IL

Student-Initiated Confrontation in Social Work Education: The Effective Management of Confrontational Behaviours Initiated by Students

Date: Monday, June 10

Time: 2:00pm to 4:00pm CST (12pm - 2:00pm PST)

Speaker: Thalia S. Anderen, PhD, MSW, LCSW, RCSW

Description: Over the past three decades, there is mounting evidence to suggest post-secondary educators, including social work educators, are experiencing increasingly concerning behaviors initiated by students both inside and outside the classroom environment. These behaviors can range from incidental rude and disruptive behaviors to more intentional ongoing aggressive and threatening behaviors. This interactive workshop is designed for social work educators or those interested in teaching in the future and will provide an overview of the prevalence of student-initiated confrontational behaviors initiated towards social work educators, SIC's personal and professional impacts, the types of situations educators may encounter, and prevention and mitigation strategies to help educators feel more prepared, validated, and empowered. This workshop also offers a valuable contribution to a broader conversation about the need to develop a pedagogy of teaching about teaching at the post-secondary social work level.
