This video features a short dramatic reconstruction of an aggressive outburst from a student who verbally abuses another student using homophobic language.

In this scenario, the teacher fails to control the situation and it escalates. What could the teacher have done differently?

A panel featuring senior education psychologist, Tina Rae, and working teachers talks through the scenario, offering clear and straightforward advice on how teachers might handle challenging situations like this.

The discussion focuses on calming body language, consistent challenging of abuse and an agreed script to use when challenging.
