Now in the seventh edition, this newly revised text focuses on the psychoeducational concepts of teaching students in crisis. The text prepares teachers to use time-tested, effective behavior management concepts and skills. Included are numerous vignettes featuring examples of emotional conflicts in children and youth. These vignettes are followed discussions of strategies for enacting positive behavioral change. The strategies emphasize the importance of teacher-student relationships, acknowledging normal counter-aggressive feelings when helping troubled students, and understanding that emotions are the primary motivator of behavior.
