How can schools create safe, well-supervised classroom environments while also teaching students skills for managing their behavior on their own? This invaluable guide presents a framework for achieving both of these crucial goals. It shows how to balance external reinforcements such as positive behavior supports with social-emotional learning interventions. Evidence-based techniques are provided for targeting the cognitive and emotional processes that underlie self-discipline, both in classroom instruction and when correcting problem behavior. Describing how to weave the techniques together into a comprehensive schoolwide disciplinary approach, the book includes over a dozen reproducible forms, checklists, and assessment tools. The large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying. This book will be of most value to school psychologists, administrators, school counselors and social workers, and general and special education teachers. It will also serve as a supplemental text in graduate-level courses such as Classroom Management and School Discipline, and School Consultation.
