Reducing the Use of Seclusion and Restraint in Schools

Reducing the Use of Seclusion and Restraint in Schools is a new video summarizing the practice and policy issues regarding the use of these procedures in schools.  The video was produced at Clemson University’s College of Health, Education and Human Development, and is one of their Policy Matters series. The hour long video includes four panelists, Dr. Reece Peterson-University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Dr. Joe Ryan–Clemson University, Dr. Dan Stewart- an attorney at the Minnesota Disability Law Center, and Bill Lichtenstein a journalist and parent of a child who has been restrained. There are also clips embedded from a documentary video by Dan Habib “Restraint & Seclusion: Hear Our Stories”. These video clips (1 hour) tell the stories of youth who have been subjected to being restrained or secluded in school. A variety of links to other additional resources on this topic can be found on the same web page.
