Disruptive Student Management


The HFRG Disruptive Student Management Course is designed to control the “physical actions” of student violence. This course does not explore the psychology of violence or the socioeconomic or family issues that lead to violence. Instead, the course focuses on controlling actions of physical violence directed at another student, a teacher, or another staff member. The techniques are very specific to actions of physical violence that teachers commonly encounter. They are not based on a general premise of self-defense that simply utilises martial arts techniques; rather they are based on principles of control and/or evasion.
