Working with Hostile & Resistant Teens DVD or VHS
Manage difficult students grades 7-12 in and outside the classroom

Manage difficult students grades 7-2 in and outside the classroom. Working With Hostile and Resistant Teens provides school-tested anger management strategies developed by therapist Steven Campbell. Role plays with actual at risk teens acting out their own personal histories of aggressive and manipulative behavior bring scenarios to life.

Campbell leads the role plays, then provides an analysis of each one showing viewers how to avoid being drawn into the   game triangle,  which consists of a victim, persecutor and rescuer. By avoiding the game, you reduce emotional content and are able to focus more clearly on the student'sbehavior.

Working With Hostile and Resistant Teens was originally released in 1993 and reformatted for DVD in 2004. Two 45 min. VHS videos or one 90 min. DVD, each with a guide.
