Pre-Work Required: 
Decide what disruptions may come up and how to deal with them before they do come up.
Procedures: 

<p>1. Take 5 minutes at the beginning to talk about the ground rules for the day or the program. <br>
2. Let them know when we are going to break for personal and biological breaks. Participants are free to get up and leave if they have an emergency but do it quietly so that they do not disturb the class,<br>
3. If because of a personal break, they are getting behind or lost just put up their hand and let the facilitator know;<br>
4. Try to set a tone and expectation of respect for the facilitator and their other participants.<br>
5. Tell them that if they think what the facilitator is saying is untrue or unfounded (BS) based on their life's experience, and let know and discuss why they think it is BS. This will bring out the disruptive influences and deal with them in the program as quickly as possible.
