BREAKING DOWN THE WALLS: REACHING THE DEFIANT CHILD:  BREAKING DOWN THE WALLS: REACHING THE DEFIANT CHILD Slide2:  ATTACHMENT DISORDER OPPOSITIONAL DEFIANCE DISORDER CONDUCT DISORDER ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER EMOTIONAL IMPAIRMENT ANXIETY DISORDERS FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME ASPERGERS SYNDROME THE NATURE OF ATTACHMENT:  THE NATURE OF ATTACHMENT Presented by Steven Vitto Slide4:  The National Adoption Center reports that 52% of adoptable children have attachment related atypical behavioral symptoms Eighty percent of maltreated infants also have attachment related behavioral symptoms Sixty to eighty percent of children who have spent time in foster care show marked symptoms It is estimated that over half of all incarcerated adults suffer from of psychopathology caused by breaks in childhood attachment Slide5:  “AN ATTACHMENT FORMS BETWEEN INFANT AND PRIMARY CAREGIVER SOMETIME DURING THE INFANT’S FIRST TWO YEARS OF LIFE.” Slide6:  Attachment is the “lasting psychological connectedness between human beings.” Slide7:  “The quality of our attachment acts as a foundation for our future.” The Basic Function of Secure Attachment:  The Basic Function of Secure Attachment Learn basic trust and reciprocity. Explore the environment with feelings of safety and security which leads to healthy cognitive and social development. Develop the ability to self-regulate, which results in effective management of impulses and emotions. Create a foundation for the formation of identity. Establish a prosocial moral framework, which involves empathy. Generate the core belief system. Provides a defense against stress and trauma. Slide9:  “AN ATTACHMENT DISORDER OCCURS WHEN THE ATTACHMENT PERIOD IS DISRUPTED OR INADEQUATE, LEAVING THE CHILD WITH THE INABILITY TO FORM A NORMAL RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS AND CAUSING AN IMPAIRMENT IN DEVELOPMENT.” Risk Factors for Developing Attachment Disorders.:  Risk Factors for Developing Attachment Disorders. Maternal ambivalence towards pregnancy. Sudden separation from the primary caregiver (death of mother, hospitalization). Abuse (physical emotional sexual). Frequent moves and placements (foster care, failed adoptions). Risk Factors (Continued…):  Risk Factors (Continued…) Traumatic prenatal experience (in-utero exposure to alcohol/drugs). neglect or parental ambivalence. Genetic predisposition. Birth trauma. Undiagnosed and/or painful illness or injury. Inconsistent or inadequate day care. Unprepared mothers with poor parenting skills. DSM-IV RAD DEFINITION:  DSM-IV RAD DEFINITION A markedly disturbed and developmentally inappropriate social relatedness in most contexts, beginning before age five, as evidenced by either: Inhibited Type (failure to initiate or respond in a developmental appropriate fashion-excessively ambivalent, hyper vigilant, excessively inhibited, resistant to comforting, avoidance) Disinhibited Type (diffuse attachment manifested by indiscriminate sociability (e.g. excessive familiarity with relative strangers or lack of selectability with attachment figure Characteristics or Symptoms of Attachment Disorder::  Characteristics or Symptoms of Attachment Disorder: Superficially charming: uses cuteness to get her or his way. Cruel to animals or people. Fascinated by fire/death/blood/gore. Severe need for control over adults even over minute situations. Manipulative-plays adults against each other. Difficulty in making eye-contact. Lack of affection on parental terms yet overly affectionate to strangers. Bossy. Shows no remorse---seems to have no conscience. Lies and steals. Low impulse control. Lack of cause/effect thinking. Destructiveness to self, others and material things. Slide14:  Has difficulty making and keeping friends. Speech and language problems. Overall developmental delay. Demanding/clingy. Incessant chattering/ Non-stop question asking. Hoards/Sneaks/ Stuffs food. Emotions don’t match the situation and are unpredictable. Overly sensitive to sights/sounds/touch/smells. Exhibits hyperactivity. Exhibits impulsivity. Disregulated eating/sleeping/toileting patterns. ATTACHMENT DISORDER CHARACTERISTICS (CONTINUED) Slide15:  Diagnosing Attachment Disorder Attachment Checklists:  Attachment Checklists Three types of Adult/child self-report Parents record child’s behavior. Refers to adult functioning. Checklists and observational inventories used by assessing professionals. Early history is key component in determining an attachment problem. Compromised Brain Development:  Compromised Brain Development Ross Green (The Explosive Child) suggests that there is compelling evidence to suggest that irregularities in the prefrontal and frontal regions may contribute to the impairments of “excutive thinking skills.” “The child’s explosive behavior may be unplanned and unintentional and reflect a physiologically based developmental delay in the skills of flexibility and frustration tolerance.” Schore believes that early life stressful experiences may permanently damage the orbital frontal cortex. The frontal cortex is clearly involved in socialized behavior. Part of the problems with impulse control and noncompliance may be due to damage in the orbital frontal cortex. DIAGNOSIS???:  DIAGNOSIS??? It is important to remember that a diagnosis is not a scientific fact. It is a considered opinion based upon the behavior of the child over time, what is known of the child's family history, the child's response to medications, his or her developmental stage, the current state of scientific knowledge and the training and experience of the doctor making the diagnosis. Prognosis::  Prognosis: Eighty percent of children with Oppositional Defiance Disorder showed insecure attachment. Insecurely attached children often grow up to become insecurely attached parents, and the cycle continues What the research says about overcoming the effects of insecure or interrupted attachment.:  What the research says about overcoming the effects of insecure or interrupted attachment. Prognosis is Tenuous High Risk for Interpersonal Problems High Risk for Not Responding to Traditional Behavioral Treatment Approaches High Risk for Oppositional Defiance Disorder High Risk for Conduct Disorder Age of Intervention is a significant variable Most Frequently Identified Protective Factors include: Intelligence, Proximity, and Constancy OPPOSITIONAL DEFIANCE DISORDER:  OPPOSITIONAL DEFIANCE DISORDER All children are oppositional from time to time, particularly when tired, hungry, stressed or upset. They may argue, talk back, disobey, and defy parents, teachers, and other adults. Oppositional behavior is often a normal part of development for two to three year olds and early adolescents. However, openly uncooperative and hostile behavior becomes a serious concern when it is so frequent and consistent that it stands out when compared with other children of the same age and developmental level and when it affects the child’s social, family, and academic life. :  All children are oppositional from time to time, particularly when tired, hungry, stressed or upset. They may argue, talk back, disobey, and defy parents, teachers, and other adults. Oppositional behavior is often a normal part of development for two to three year olds and early adolescents. However, openly uncooperative and hostile behavior becomes a serious concern when it is so frequent and consistent that it stands out when compared with other children of the same age and developmental level and when it affects the child’s social, family, and academic life. What is Oppositional Defiance Disorder?:  What is Oppositional Defiance Disorder? ODD is a persistent pattern (lasting for at least six months) of negativistic, hostile, disobedient, and defiant behavior in a child or teen without serious violation of the basic rights of others. ODD DEFINED:  ODD DEFINED The key distinction from other types of conduct disorder is the absence of behavior that violates the law and the basic rights of others, such as theft, cruelty, bullying, assault, and destructiveness Oppositional Defiance Disorder:  Oppositional Defiance Disorder ODD is a nondelinquent conduct disorder ODD occurs in about 6% of children ODD is more common to boys prior to puberty ODD is equal in both sexes after puberty What are the Symptoms of Oppositional Defiance Disorder?:  What are the Symptoms of Oppositional Defiance Disorder? Frequent loss of temper; Arguing with adults Defying adults Refusing adult requests or rules Deliberately annoying others Blaming others for mistakes and misbehavior Oppositional Defiance Disorder:  Oppositional Defiance Disorder Being touchy or easily annoyed Being angry and resentful Being spiteful or vindictive Swearing or using obscene language Have a low opinion of themselves Moody and easily frustrated It is important to distinguish between a won’t problem and a can’t problem:  It is important to distinguish between a won’t problem and a can’t problem Can be difficult to assess Treating a can’t problem with punishment can cause distrust and alienation Treating a won’t problem with punishment and reward programs can result in deceit and manipulation Contra-Indicated Behavioral Strategies for the ODD Child:  Contra-Indicated Behavioral Strategies for the ODD Child Ultimatums Strict Boundaries: Drawing the Line in the Sand Counts, Warnings, Threats Prolonged Eye-Contact Infringing on Personal Space Social Disapproval Judgmental Responses Response Cost and Punishment Strict Boundaries or Contracts Suspension and Detention, Progressive Discipline What Causes Oppositional Defiance Disorder?:  What Causes Oppositional Defiance Disorder? The cause of Oppositional Defiant Disorder is unknown at this time. The following are some of the theories being investigated: It may be related to the child's temperament and the family's response to that temperament. A predisposition to ODD is inherited in some families. There may be problems in the brain that cause ODD. It may be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Children with ODD have often experienced a break in attachment or bonding during the first 2 years of life Contributing Factors:  Contributing Factors Parents and teachers who impose inconsistent ---harsh punishment mixed with lax, inconsistent rules, neglect, and irrational authority will exacerbate temperamental difficulties with the child. Temperamental difficulties of the child may include intense affect, withdrawal from novelty, poor self-control, slow adaptation to change, irregular sleep and wake cycles, easily distractibility, etc. Russell Barkley’s 4-Factor Method: Etiology of ODD:  Russell Barkley’s 4-Factor Method: Etiology of ODD Factor 1: The child’s or teen’s characteristics Factor 2: The parent’s characteristics Factor 3: The family environment and stress Factor 4: Parenting Style Factor #1: The child or teen’s characteristics-Temperament:  Factor #1: The child or teen’s characteristics-Temperament Temperament is behavioral style; it is the characteristic way an individual child exper-iences and responds to internal and external stimuli. The concept of temperament leads to a view of children as unique individuals, each with his or her own particular vulnerabilities, strengths, and coping mechanisms. Responding to Temperament :  Responding to Temperament Expert parenting or teaching not seen as acting according to a set of general rules. Expert teaching and/or parenting is considered to be founded on a loving, yet objective, understanding of a particular child. Guidelines for education, scheduling, communication, discipline, and other management strategies vary according to the temperament of the child. Temperament :  Temperament Largely determined by genetic factors. Shows considerable stability over time. Can be modified by–but not transformed—by environmental influences. Early 1960’s, Thomas and Chess (New York City) started to publish articles about temperament; described nine traits that contribute to temperament--- Nine traits that Contribute to Temperament :  Nine traits that Contribute to Temperament 1. ACTIVITY: the amount of physical motion during sleep, eating, play, dressing, bathing, and so forth. 2. RHYTHMICITY: the regularity of physio-logic functions such as hunger, sleep, and elimination. 3. APPROACH/WITHDRAWAL: the nature of initial responses to new stimuli--people, situations, places, foods, toys, procedures. Temperamental Traits :  Temperamental Traits 4. ADAPTABILITY: the ease or difficulty with which reactions to stimuli can be mod-ified in a desired way. 5. INTENSITY: the energy level of responses regardless of quality or direction. 6. MOOD: the amount of pleasant and friendly, or unpleasant and unfriendly, behavior in various situations. Temperamental Traits :  Temperamental Traits 7. PERSISTENCE AND ATTENTION SPAN: the length of time particular activities are pursued by the child, with or without obstacles. 8. DISTRACTIBILITY: the effectiveness of extraneous environmental stimuli in inter-fering with ongoing behaviors. 9. SENSORY THRESHOLD: the amount of stimulation, such as sounds or light, necessary to evoke discernible responses in the child. Child Unhappy at Her Own Birthday Party:  Child Unhappy at Her Own Birthday Party Why was this little girl’s party a failure? Overlooking Temperament :  Why was this little girl’s party a failure? Overlooking Temperament High intensity (expresses emotions in a strong way, including her present unhap-piness). Low sensory threshold (uncomfortable in her starched dress, very aware of its scratchiness). Initial withdrawal (her usual first impulse is to withdraw from new things, and this was a surprise party). Temperamental Traits of This Particular Child :  Temperamental Traits of This Particular Child Poor adaptability (has trouble with transition and change of routine). Negative mood (doesn’t show pleasure openly, not a “sunny” disposition). Parents are very disappointed the child did not enjoy her birthday party, and don’t understand why it was not fun for her; they ask her pediatrician’s advice regarding plans for next year’s party.

A child presenting with ODD symptoms should have a comprehensive evaluation. It is important to look for other disorders which may be present; such as, attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, emotional disturbances-I.e.,mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder) and anxiety disorders. It may be difficult to improve the symptoms of ODD without treating the coexisting disorder. Some children with ODD may go on to develop called conduct disorder. Slide48:  What Is Bullying? Bullying in its truest form is comprised of a series of repeated intentionally cruel incidents, involving the same children, in the same bully and victim roles. Slide49:  “The scars of being bullied last a life time” Slide50:  Kinds of Bullies Physical Bullies Verbal Bullies Relational Bullies Reactive Bullies Slide51:  By age 24, up to sixty percent of people who are identified as childhood bullies have at least one criminal conviction. A study spanning 35 years by psychologist E. Eron at the University of Michigan found that children who were named by their school mates, at age eight, as the bullies of the school were often bullies throughout their lives Slide52:  bullying occurs once every seven minutes on average, bullying episodes are brief, approximately 37 seconds long the emotional scars from bullying can last a lifetime the majority of bullying occurs in or close to school buildings most victims are unlikely to report bullying only 25% of students report that teachers intervene in bullying situations, while 71% of teachers believe they always intervene situations, therefore bullying is often overlooked RESEARCH ON BULLYING Most Children with ODD have an ADHD component:  Most Children with ODD have an ADHD component ADHD:  ADHD “That energy which makes the child hard to manage, is the energy, which makes him a manager of life.” “Just when I thought about not doing something, I already did it.” Logo seen on T-shirt for ADHD adult “They say I have ADHD, did you see that chicken go by?” Characteristics of ADHD:  Characteristics of ADHD Inattentive Type spacey, mild anxiety, socially withdrawn, day dreamers, difficulty sustaining attention, difficulty listening, often leaves school work unfinished,difficulty with organization, problems with sustained mental effort, forgetful,distractible Hyperactive Impulsive Type fidgets,squirms,impulse control difficulties, excessive talking or blurting out, out of seat, difficulty playing quietly, always moving, difficulty waiting turn CONDUCT DISORDER AND EMOTIONAL IMPAIRMENT :  CONDUCT DISORDER AND EMOTIONAL IMPAIRMENT WHAT IS EI? What is Social Maladjustment or Behavioral Disturbance?..and where does Conduct Disorder fit in? :  WHAT IS EI? What is Social Maladjustment or Behavioral Disturbance?..and where does Conduct Disorder fit in? Emotional Impairment is terminology used in the educational setting in conjunction with Behavioral Disturbance which is language used in IDEA. Social maladjustment is conceptualized as a conduct problem. Social maladjustment tends to be an educational term which is frequently interchanged with the term Conduct Disorder in DSM IV. Social Maladjustment; Conduct Disorder :  Social Maladjustment; Conduct Disorder Social Maladjustment and Emotional Impairment are two distinct behavioral disorders. :  Social Maladjustment and Emotional Impairment are two distinct behavioral disorders.

(This however, does not mean that they do not have needs!) Slide61:  Students with conduct disorder engage in deliberate acts of self-interest to gain attention or to intimidate others. They experience no distress or self-devaluation or internalized distress. Slide62:  Conduct Disorder is best understood as a distinctive pattern of antisocial behavior that violates the rights of others. Individuals with conduct disorder break rules/violate norms across settings. Conduct Disorder Slide63:  Maladjusted/Conduct Disorder students: perceive themselves as normal are capable of behaving appropriately choose to break rules and violate norms. view rule breaking as normal and acceptable. are motivated by self-gain and strong survival skills lack age appropriate concern for their behavior displayed behavior which may be highly valued in a small subgroup display socialized or unsocialized forms of aggression due not display anxiety unless they fear being caught intensity and duration of behavior differs markedly from peer group Slide64:  DSM-IV Criteria for Conduct Disorder: Aggression-bullies, threatens others, fights, uses a weapon, cruel to people/animals, forced sexual activity Destruction of property-fire setting, destroyed others' property Deceitfulness or theft-broken into houses/cars/buildings, often lies or cons others, has stolen without victim present Serious rule violations-often stays out at night without permission, has run away, is often truant.

A proportion of individuals with ODD later develop CD, and a proportion of those with CD will later develop ASPD (Loeber, Burke, Lahey, & Zera, 2000).  Studies researching the co-morbid associations with CD have found significant co-morbid relationships between CD and learning disorders, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and substance related disorders. The comorbidity rate for CD and ADHD in the community population is 23 %. The comorbidity rate for CD and major depression in the community population is 17 %. The comorbidity rate for CD and anxiety disorders in the community population is 15 % (Carr, 2000). :  The comorbidity rate for CD and ADHD in the community population is 23 %.

What is Michigan’s Criteria for an Emotional Impairment?:  What is Michigan’s Criteria for an Emotional Impairment? Emotional Impairment shall be determined through manifestation of behavioral problems primarily in the affective domain, over an extended period of time, which adversely affect the student’s education to the extent that the student can not profit from learning experiences without special education support. Emotional Impairment MET Form Continued:  Emotional Impairment MET Form Continued The problem result in behaviors manifested by 1 or more of the following: (A) An inability to build or maintain satisfactory interpersonal relationships with peers and teachers. (B) Inappropriate types of behavior or feelings under normal circumstances. (C) A general pervasive mood of unhappiness or depression. (D) A tendency to develop physical symptoms or fears associated with personal or school problems. Slide72:  Emotional Impairment also includes students who, in addition to the characteristics specified above, exhibit maladaptive behaviors related to schizophrenia or similar disorders. Slide73:  The term “Emotional Impairment” does not include persons who are socially maladjusted, unless it is determined that the persons have an Emotional Impairment. It is possible for a student to exhibit behaviors characteristic of both disorders and then certified appropriately as Emotionally Impaired. A thorough, objective evaluation is the key to an appropriate outcome. :  It is possible for a student to exhibit behaviors characteristic of both disorders and then certified appropriately as Emotionally Impaired. A thorough, objective evaluation is the key to an appropriate outcome. Slide75:  Educational options for Emotionally Impaired and Socially Maladjusted students often parallel. Small class size, individualized programming, modified curriculum. Work study, adjusted school hours, vocational programming, shorten academic periods and alternative placement. For the child with an Emotional Impairment, diffusing a crisis will often involve reducing anxiety. For the child with Conduct Disorder and effective response should increase anxiety:  For the child with an Emotional Impairment, diffusing a crisis will often involve reducing anxiety. For the child with Conduct Disorder and effective response should increase anxiety Slide77:  Emotional Impairment does not include students whose behaviors are primarily the result of intellectual, sensory, or health factors. Internal vs. External Behaviors :  Internal vs. External Behaviors Disorders viewed as internalizing: Affective disorders, Elective Mutism, Separation Anxiety Disorder may qualify as Emotional Impairment Disorders viewed as externalizing: Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder or Anti-Social Personality Disorder, may indicated Social Maladjustment Differential Diagnosis is important to determine if the external behavior may look the same, but the underlying reasons, etiology and intent, may be different. Slide79:  IT IS NOT UNCOMMON THAT A MENTAL HEALTH DISORDER GETS MISSED Major Depression: ¼ to ½ of children with CD have either anxiety disorder or depression Bipolar Disorder: Anxiety Disorder: Reactive Attachment Disorder Tourette’s Syndrome Personality Disorder Eating Disorders: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Substance Abuse: Things that you already know that will help with EI and CD students::  Things that you already know that will help with EI and CD students: Daily Schedule Transition Time Consistent Assignment Format Positive Behavior Support Teacher/Student Contact Functional Behavioral Assessment Behavior Intervention Plan The ODD and CD Child:  The ODD and CD Child We take them home with us every day. Our family knows them without ever having met them. We dream about them. They learn how to push our buttons. They can take us down a road we don’t want to travel. They make us think that maybe we should have gone into marketing or real estate. They are extremely difficult to like at times… Our most challenging children:  Our most challenging children May not respond to traditional consequences Will require more support and change on our part Will need a significant positive relationship at school Will need another way to find acceptance in the school environment May be resistant to strategies to develop self control To Reach the 1-7% :  To Reach the 1-7% Abandon ineffective practices. Resist inclination to exclude. Separate what the child deserves and what he needs. Realize that he/she needs our support and forgiveness the most. Reframe who they are. Think “outside the box.” Abandon expectation of a quick fix Need a 7:1 reinforcement ratio, with meaningful incentives Need peer support. Need to undermine harmful mentors Problems with Punishment:  Problems with Punishment Punishment focuses on external control but does little to teach internal control. Punishment does not teach the child how to meet needs previously being served by the target behavior. Punishment backfires with students who are oppositional and defiant. Punishment often triggers an escalation of behavior and may elicit tantrums and aggression. Punishment models a type of authority that resolves conflict by power and inflicting discomfort or pain. Punishment is a quick term-fix that takes much less time than to teach the child betters ways of behaving. Research has shown that punishment strategies have poor transferability. Punishment is inconsistent with the concept of mutual respect. Punishment often excludes and isolates a child when teaching and support is needed most.

Learning how to compliment others Learning how to care through modeling Ross Greene’s Three Basket Method:  Ross Greene’s Three Basket Method Three goals with this method: 1. To maintain adults as authority figures. 2. Teach skills of flexibility and frustration tolerance. 3. Awareness of the child’s limitations. Three basket method: How it works:  Three basket method: How it works Behaviors are divided into three baskets. Basket A-are non-negotiable behaviors- usually fall into the safety and rights of others category. These behaviors are those that are important enough to endure a “meltdown” over. Child must be capable of successfully exhibiting this behavior on a fairly consistent basis. Basket B- These behaviors are important but can be worked on over time. They are not behaviors worth inducing a “meltdown” over. Basket C-These behaviors are those that could be ignored without any significant repercussions. Advantages of this Treatment Approach:  Advantages of this Treatment Approach Breaks behaviors down into three approachable categories. Emphasizes communication and problem solving techniques over rewards and punishments. Teaches frustration tolerance. Absolves blame while keeping the child’s self-esteem in tact. Limitations of the 3-basket method:  Limitations of the 3-basket method It is ideal to make this work that all parties; teachers, parents, support staff be able to work together. Dr. Greene is careful to point out that even though there are some issues that the non-medical approach addresses more effectively than the medical approach there are indeed some factors medicine addresses better than the non-medical approach. For those children who need medication it will make it more difficult to teach frustration tolerance when there is also an organic matter. Life-Spaced Crisis Intervention:  Life-Spaced Crisis Intervention Presented by Lisa Cobb Life-Spaced Crisis Intervention:  Life-Spaced Crisis Intervention The needs of the troubled and troubling youth we serve today are greater than ever.   LSCI is a multitheoretical model integrating Psychoeducational, Cognitive, Behavioral, and Pro-Social theories into a dynamic and comprehensive therapeutic strategy.   It is based in the reality of the young person's immediate circumstances and the patterns that lead repeatedly lead them into crisis situations.  It is initiated by staff whom the youth know, providing excellent opportunities to build or enhance meaningful therapeutic relationships.  It is clinically powerful and professionally teachable. Slide103:  LSCI is a time-tested technique for helping troubled and troubling children and youth who are in crisis in their homes, schools, and communities. Life Space Crisis Intervention is a refreshing alternative to traditional techniques and provides effective alternatives to punishment. LSCI uses crisis as an opportunity for insight and behavior change. Slide104:  Most staff working with troubled and troubling children and youth have the heart and the experience so necessary for their work. What they often lack are tools: Knowing what to do when a student: - refuses to accept responsibility and blames others - swears at or threatens adults - gets pleasure out of bringing pain to others - is manipulated into false friendships - engages in endless power struggles. Life Space Crisis Intervention skills empower school staff to intervene effectively when confronted with repetitive patterns of self-defeating behavior common in troubled and troubling students. Slide105:  Training in LSCI is a five-day intensive experience. Participants will view video taped sequences of actual crisis situations and will see the skills of LSCI effectively demonstrated and analyzed. The training includes much opportunity for skills practice through realistic role plays, activities and exercises. Slide106:  This intervention is based on twenty-seven specific skills needed to respond successfully to a student's crisis. Slide107:  These concepts are anchored in supporting, caring relationships between the student and the staff. Slide108:  There are three possible outcomes of crisis: Staff student relationship is improved The staff student relationship is unchanged The staff student relationship is damaged Slide109:  How To Use Life Space Interviewing 1.  Intervene. 2.   Listen to the involved parties in a nonjudgmental manner. 3.   Analyze the situation and determine whether this incident is an isolated happening or part of recurring theme. 4.   Choose a specific LSI approach. 5.   Implement the selected approach while being polite, attentive, and concerned. 6.   Change or combine approaches as necessary. Slide110:  There are five different types of emotional first aid. Which one you use will depend upon the situation encountered. Slide111:  1. Reality Rub The teacher helps the student to realize that s/he has misinterpreted or refused to recognize certain information pertinent to an incident.  The student is made aware that his or her perceptions are not correct, and s/he is informed as to the truth of the situation under discussion. Slide112:  2.  Value Repair and Restoration The teacher attempts to awaken dormant values such as respect, empathy, trust, etc.  Many students are unable, at present, to display emotions which represent vulnerability.  They tend to act out aggression, nonchalance, and anger most often.  The teacher attempts to "massage" the numb value areas and help develop appropriate emotional responses to certain situations. Slide113:  3.  Symptom Estrangement Some students don't realize that their behavior is inappropriate or bizarre in the eyes of others.  The teacher brings the student's attention to the specific behavior and how it is viewed by others.  It is hoped that the student will come to realize the problem and talk about other ways to meet his or her needs. Slide114:  4.  New Tool Salesmanship In this interview, the student is helped to improve his/her ability to react in a problem solving situation.  "Tools" or ways of solving problems are taken from past experience and applied in new situations. Slide115:  5.  Manipulation of the Boundaries of the Self This interview is used with two types of students: those who allow themselves to be "used" by others, and those who victimize or take advantage of others.  The student is made aware of his/her behavior pattern in an attempt to make him/her more receptive to interventions.     Individual Positive Behavior Supports and Functional Assessment:  Individual Positive Behavior Supports and Functional Assessment Slide117:  “If you know why, you can figure out how….” W.
