Geoff Colvin

Dr. Geoff Colvin draws on his experience as a classroom teacher, both in special and general education, school administrator, behaviour consultant and research associate at the University of Oregon.

Dr. Colvin is an internationally recognised educational consultant who has assisted personnel in more than 200 school districts and agencies, nationally and internationally, on the subject of managing problem behaviour, teaching challenging students and school safety planning. He has authored and co-authored more than 80 publications including books, book chapters, articles and video programs on teaching and managing students who exhibit the full range of problem behaviour. His video program Defusing Anger and Aggression received national recognition by winning the 2000 Telly Award and Communicator Award of Distinction. Two of his books 7 Steps for Developing a Proactive Schoolwide Discipline Plan and Defusing Disruptive Behavior are on the publisher Corwin's best seller list.

As an administrator, he directed a juvenile detention school for five years and was the principal for a countywide school for seriously emotionally disturbed youth for five years. He served as the supervisor of special programs with Bethel School District, Eugene, Oregon for several years.

Dr. Colvin has a very special skill in being able to translate theory into practice. He is able to present clear explanations and analyses of learning and behaviour and at the same time offer concrete examples with hands-on illustrations. He has a very strong insightful understanding of the relationship between quality instruction and behaviour management. His extensive knowledge and experience base, lively speaking style and keen sense of humour have made him a highly sought-after speaker at national and international conferences.
