« Changes to the DSM V- A Personal Perspective by: Marilyn Green-Rebnord | Main | Bullying: The Sad Reality »

I am currently researching this topic for my class and have been trying to gather as much information as possible. From the research I have so far, it seems as though seclusion and restraint are very dangerous "interventions" for any student. I understand they are supposed to be used as a last resort, but of articles and stories I have found, they weren't. If school districts and the Department of Education are allowing this to happen, provide teachers and staff with proper training and the use of restraints and seclusion. Otherwise, there are going to be some heated court cases when another child death occurs due to this issue. I'm graduating in May with a degree in early childhood and special education and I don't think I could ever restrain a child like the stories I have heard and read. It seems inhumane to me.

Could anyone point to in the direction of some articles and research on this topic? It can support either side, just want to get a better idea of all arguments.
