This podcast is part of the series: De-escalating Crisis Situations in School
Glenwood Autism and Behavioral Health Center, Birmingham, AL
In this third of five videos targeting how to de-escalate a crisis situation in school, we begin to discuss the importance of our own self-care and how our actions can impact a crisis situation. Each of us has an impact on others in every encounter we have and our interactions send ripples out into the world around us. In this video we will identify what those ripples look like and then address how we need to bring our best ripples to these crisis situations. What do you enjoy doing? That is a question you will answer and then you will be encouraged to incorporate that activity into your life on a regular basis because it will help to relieve the stress in your life. When you are taking care of yourself and your stress level is managed well, you will be able to respond to others and their stress in healthier ways. After watching this video, we hope you will become more aware of your stress and choose to implement a plan to address stressors to relieve the pressure. Then, we hope you will teach your students some self-care techniques as well.
