Rating: 0/5

Violence is the ongoing problem in many school, and schools are supposed to be places with zero tolerance to violence. Violence became silent epidemic in school, and everybody seems to be powerless about that problem. It is time that every school takes effective measures to prevent the violence. However, there is no use of solving the sympthoms, but the the real causes of the problem. This course tries to come to the essence of the problem; every student who has a tendency to be violent has his or her story that needs to be heard. How can we, as teachers or pedagogical workers, approach problematic students? How can we protect the victims? Why is somebody a victim, and somebody an abuser? Learn about the dynamic of this silent epidemic on this interactive course. We need to react today in order to protect the generations of tomorrow.
