Violence and Prevention Training

The New York State Education Department requires all teachers who are seeking initial or permanent state certification to take this workshop. School staffers can use techniques and practical approaches to avoid and defuse violent situations in school. This workshop gives participants an understanding of the dynamics of assaultive, aggressive behavior and tools to avoid becoming victimized in school. Participants are asked to arrive a half-hour before the workshop begins.

The UFT offers this workshop to its union dues-paying members for a $25 fee for UFT paraprofessionals and UFT pedagogues (teachers, school counselors, PT/ OT, school secretaries, etc.) paid via credit card once you register online. Non-members must mail in a $50 money order only (no personal checks) made payable to the UFT once they have completed their online registration.
