The Impact of Teacher Intervention on Reaction to Aggression among Kuwaiti School Children
Prof. Amer Alsaleh

The present study examines the influence of teacher intervention on responses to classroom aggression. A sample of one hundred fifty teachers employed in twenty public schools across six governorates completed measures of teaching characteristics and responded to vignettes depicting student aggression. ANOVAs analyses findings showed that teachers’ response to aggressive behavior in the classroom was impacted by their prior training in classroom behavior management. Results confirmed the importance of prior training in supporting classroom management. Implications are discussed as they relate to relevant models and educational research initiatives. Future research should consider different facets of training programs (including both curriculum content and training methods) when considering the role of participation on teaching outcomes.
