From Power Struggle to Benevolent Authority and Empathic Limit-Setting: Creating Inclusive School Practice with Excluded Students through Action Research
Teachers face a dilemma in setting limits and establishing boundaries with excluded students, who often exhibit extremely disruptive behavior that cannot be ignored or condoned. Since limit-setting through threats, sanctions, punishment, or expulsion simply reinforces the cycle of exclusion, the alternative approach presented here is to treat the breaching of boundaries as a developmental rather than a moral issue. Benevolent authority and empathic limit-setting, which lie at the core of this method, involve understanding and tending to the needs of the young person while at the same time clearly defining the necessary boundaries and positively reinforcing students for maintaining them.

This summer, AVI CHAI is excited to provide two different types of opportunities for participation in the year-long program that is launched at the Principals' Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. We will once again sponsor individual day school leaders to attend one of two institutes – “Art of Leadership” (AOL) for administrators in their first 5 years of leadership, and “Leadership: An Evolving Vision” (LEV) for more veteran (5+ years) administrators. New candidates, as well as those who have previously attended AOL (with or without AVI CHAI sponsorship) in the summer of 2015 or prior, are welcome to apply. In addition, this year a separate, parallel group of school administrative teams (up to 3 members per school) will be sponsored for “Leadership: An Evolving Vision,” the institute for more veteran leaders.
