Select the targeted age group, then the level of intervention.
  • Elementary School

Externalizing Behaviors occur when students demonstrate disruptive or aggressive behavior, get into trouble at school, and have difficulty complying with adult directives. Externalizing behaviors can lead to rejection from peers and teachers, friendships with peers who make poor choices, bullying others, being bullied, receiving out-of-school discipline, school failure, school disengagement, substance abuse, and dropout.

Interventions and supports for Externalizing Behaviors focus on goal setting, enhancing problem-solving skills, increasing emotion recognition, and anger control strategies to decrease disruptive and aggressive behaviors.
