This webinar provides practical solutions for managing power struggles with deaf and hard of hearing students. It also helps individuals identify when their emotional reactions may be leading to conflicts with students and allows them to engage in ways that promote resolution instead of escalating those conflicts. This webinar is of interest to teachers, dorm staff, mental health professionals, and parents. It is presented in ASL by a nationally certified school psychologist; an English voiceover is also provided.
